Bread for Life

Bread for Life began as St. Augustine's congregational breakfast gathering on Sunday mornings and expanded to serve anyone from the community.

Bread for Life Breakfast Program Takes a Break
The Bread for Life's breakfast program, operating for the past 25 years, will be on hiatus for a while as we transition to our new building.  Virginia Mathis, Joyce Hardmon, and Judy Alexander, with faithful volunteers from the congregation and the southwest community, have fed many appreciative guests with delicious pancakes, eggs, breakfast casseroles, sausages, biscuits, coffeecakes, coffee and juice--all served with lots of love and concern. Each summer Bruce Crane took over the breakfast program to give Virginia and Joyce a summer break.
One guest recently told Rev. Martha, "We know there are other breakfast programs, but we like to come here because the food is delicious and we are treated with love and respect."
