The Shepherd’s Table – Paris

The First Presbyterian Church Of Paris, is the newest congregation to join the Shepherd’s Table Community Kitchen team! The will serve supper on the first Thursday of each month, from 4:30 to 6:30 pm at their fellowship hall, 105 S. Market St. in Paris. Due to Covid safety regulations at this time the meals will be served curbside only. The volunteers ask that you approach the church on Blythe St. and park by the gate next to the playground. Overflow traffic will be directed to the First Presbyterian parking lot across the street from the church and instructed to move curbside as space becomes available. 

Alsey Wheatley, the leader of the kitchen staff has prepared a menu for the first supper that will include a hearty homemade lasagna, roasted vegetables, garlic bread and a delicious dessert. There is no charge for the meal. The volunteers ask for your patience and prayers as this is their first attempt to serve the public. Also, there will be a limited number of meals available – so everyone will be served until the food runs out. 

Lauren Nash, Chairman of the Fellowship Committee, spoke before the church and said this is a great way to serve Christ and our Community. Rev. Tommy Taylor said that there this was the beginning of other outreach programs that the First Presbyterian Church of Paris would start doing. 

To fulfill the needs of the community, The Shepherd’s Table is experimenting with the curb-side, drive-thru, carryout method of serving. Please feel free to stop by and take advantage of this complimentary meal. In these trying times, They hope to move to indoor dining soon.
