Community Dinner
Our Community Dinner takes place on the fourth Tuesday of every month at 5:30 (view our calendar for exact dates). The current format is drive-thru.  The meal consists of a sub sandwich (turkey or ham), pre-packaged chips, unsweetened applesauce, Rice Krispy Bar and bottled water. 

If you are seeking a meal- please enter on Ransom Street and exit onto Elm Street.

On average we serve 86 meals a month!   It takes a team of about 15 volunteers to complete each month’s Community Dinner.  All are members and friends of First Congregational Church!

For this year’s November Community Dinner, we are again partnering with Crossroads Marketplace in Green Lake to distribute Thanksgiving meals on Tuesday, November 23.  Last year, we packaged 200 meals and distributed 75 through the Ripon Senior Center and 118 through our drive-thru process.

What's Happened This Year:
While the Covid 19 pandemic forced our church to make major adjustments in worship, fellowship, and our general ministry, it did not stop us from living out our call to love our neighbor and share God's love with all.
