Westchester Meals Mission Statement
Westchester Meals is a self-contained mission of St. John’s United Church. This mission is carried out with the cooperation of other churches in the area. The main focus of this mission is to provide meals for those residing in Westchester Township who are unable to prepare their own meals. We are also an additional contact for those we serve.

Meals are prepared Monday, Wednesday, and Friday
mornings at a cost of $2.00 per meal.

Please contact us for more information.


Make A Difference

Our Beliefs

God is love. God invites the world into loving, faithful relationship.
(1 John 4:8)
Every person is created in God’s image. This image takes many forms. Every race and ethnicity, economic status, age, ability, citizenship, gender or gender identity, or sexual orientation can be understood as a unique imprint of God. Everyone is loved by God, deserving of the love and respect of others.
(Genesis 1:27, Romans 10:12, 1 Corinthians 12:13, Galatians 3:28)
Love can be very difficult. Throughout the Bible, the people are called to do better in their love for God and one another. In love, God sent prophets to remind the people to care for one another. Today, love still competes with hatred and apathy.
(Isaiah 1:3)
God sent Jesus Christ for our return to love and justice. Showing us how to live without fear, Jesus gave of himself, to God and to others. Because of Jesus’ life, death and resurrection, we can be set free.
(Matthew 20:28)
The Holy Spirit supports us, and guides the Church, which exists for all people. Families are key to social stability as are close friendships. The church supports friends and families through worship and sacraments, study, prayer, and fellowship. When we fall—when we are lost entirely—we are never truly alone, and we are always loved.
(Proverbs 17:17, Mark 10:29-30, John 15:13-15, Acts 2:42)
