EZ Dinner Nite builds community around Lincoln UMC


Lincoln UMC hosts a free EZ Dinner Nite once a month in our Fellowship Hall.  

It is a way we can help busy families and neighbors in our local community by providing free meals and a place to relax. It is also a way for our church members to do outreach in a non-confrontational way.

During this time we host local artists and musicians, including the Pastor, which makes the evening a lot of fun! We also open our courtyard, nursery and meeting rooms with games and cartoons for families with kids.

Now that COVID has subsided, we have been able to resume resumed this ministry and have had an amazing turnout. Close to 80 people attended monthly.

Our hope and prayer is that EZ Dinner Nite becomes a local hub for community, hospitality, creativity and fun...all in Jesus' name. And, by God's grace, it looks like we are well on our way!
