Shepherd's Table provides homemade, hot meals to anyone in our community. 

The need is big...

The Shepherd's Table is a free hot meal program offered to anyone in the community in need of a meal and/or fellowship with others.  We serve meals every Tuesday and Thursday from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. We also deliver meals to those in the Cadillac area who are homebound by reason of infirmity, disability or age, and cannot come to FBC for their meals. 

We believe in serving meals to the poor and lonely with dignity and respect, just as if Jesus were coming for our meal. 

"Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’" - Matthew 25:34-36

Thank you for all your support!

Donations can be made online by clicking the button below or by mailing a check to First Baptist Church, 125 Stimson Street, Cadillac, Michigan 49601, or placed in the offering plate at Sunday Services.  Please mark "Shepherd's Table" in your check's memo line or as your description if giving online.  Donations can be anonymous, but if you include your name and address, we'll send a thank you and a tax receipt, as all donations are tax deductable.

Other ways to give:

We always need volunteers; you could help us bake or cook. We start at noon every Tuesday and Thursday (no special knowledge or skills are needed).

You could help serve or clean-up; we serve from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m. and finish cleaning up around 7:00 p.m. (earlier if we have lots of help!).

We always need people with the gift of organization to help with inventory control (tidying the storage rooms).

Of course one of our biggest needs is monetary donations. We are funded by local churches, individuals, and a grant from the United Way. The largest donations are from people in the community and our church who care for those less fortunate than themselves.
