Wednesday Night Dinner
Bethany Presbyterian Church seeks to open our doors and hearts to the Queen Anne community, to come together and enjoy both a meal and fellowship, and to encourage one another in life and faith.
Wednesday Night Dinner (WND) is an open door community of Bethany Presbyterian Church which includes folks from the Sunday congregation and the local area. We gather Wednesday evenings to enjoy a meal and fellowship, to encourage one another in life and the Christian faith, and to be a blessing to our neighborhood and city.
CONTINUING TO SERVE OUR COMMUNITY DURING COVID
While some non-profits have stopped serving meals during the pandemic, we are happy to continue to serve hot, homemade to-go dinners every Wednesday evening from 5:30 to 6:30 at the doors to the Fellowship Hall. Please join us and pick-up a take-out meal some Wednesday.
MAY VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH – JAMES WLOS
Get to know our WND Volunteer of the Month, James Wlos! Here are some tidbits from a recent conversation between James and our WND Director, Hannah:
- James has been part of the WND community since 1997 and started volunteering more officially in 1999.
- James is originally from Providence, Rhode Island.
- In addition to his work at Wednesday Night Dinner, James has experience at the Port of Seattle, Bleachers International, and the Evergreen State Fair. Furthermore, James helped start and direct a non-profit organization called Peace in the Streets for Kids in the Street. They worked to support youth on the streets in Seattle to become empowered to lead positive and self-sufficient lives through their food, housing, and employment programs as well as their drop-in community center.
- James holds a wealth of knowledge and experience in topics related to homelessness, politics, community organizing and social justice.
- For fun, some of James favorite TV shows include The 6 Million Dollar Man and Bionic Woman (a TV show from the 70s) and Star Trek. A fun fact about James for all you Stark Trek fans out there, is that he got to meet George Takei at a parade in Seattle several years ago! James is also a mechanic and enjoys working on small engines.
Everyone is welcome.
No need to make a reservation.
And the food is always free.
Over the years the dinners have become a cooperative effort of Bethany, other local churches and community, schools to cook, serve and clean up.
When are we closed?
The Dinner takes a break in August.
Dinner will not be served on days when the bus is traveling on its snow route.
We would love to connect with you! Reach out to Hannah with questions about the dinner.
