Serving thousands of meals monthly, Ruth’s Kitchen prepares meals for both community and church events and activities.

Wednesday Night Dinners
Come and enjoy a delicious meal with your church family at the Wednesday Night Fellowship Dinner each Wednesday night from 5:00pm – 6:00pm in The Wright Place. Menus are available weekly in the Sunday worship bulletins and online. Reservations (by Tuesday at noon) can be made online, by calling the church office or using the worship registration pad. Activities for all ages are available following Wednesday Night Dinners.
Serving the Hungry Plus Ministry
The Serving the Hungry Plus program at First Church provides 100+ hot meals for those in need in our community on Mondays and Thursdays at 11 AM.
The Casserole Ministry provides meals for those in the church and community who are sick, grieving, or facing a challenging time. These casseroles, available throughout the year, are often delivered by our pastoral care team.
Lectionary at Lunch (Fall/Spring)
Lectionary at Lunch meets every Wednesday at noon for an in-depth, lunchtime discussion group led by our pastors, which focuses on the weekly lectionary scriptures. This is a great opportunity for the downtown community to participate in a mid-week devotion served with a delicious lunch by the staff and volunteers of Ruth’s Kitchen at First UMC Pensacola.
