This November marks my three years as a church cook at Independent Presbyterian Church. It has been a tremendous blessing to be able to serve here. The church leadership and the congregation have shown me such grace and gratitude, and it has been a wonderful, yet humbling time.
My job to cook and serve God's people has been deeply satisfying; more than any catering events I have done in the past. It has been a joy to serve His church.
Here is the beautiful kitchen I work in. This 700sq. feet space was remodeled about ten years ago. Want to take a peek?
I love the label maker! It's so convenient (I would label my four children if I could get away with it!)
And this is THE wonderful dishwasher, almost as wonderful as my hubby. It washes, rinses, and sanitizes in 15 seconds per cycle! I have been trying to convince my husband that I NEED one in my home kitchen.
Two convection ovens and two regular,
Six steamers wells, and bread warmer (but used for storage)....
And this is the prep table where all the action takes place.
Thank you, IPC, for grace and appreciation for this humble servant. I love being your church cook.
A little side note:
IPC has three meals a week, 49 weeks a year:
Tuesday Men's prayer breakfast serves about 30
Wednesday Noon Service lunch serves about 65
Sunday Fellowship Dinner serves about 300
And the kitchen staff and I assist with numerous church events such as
Low Country Boil
Egg Hunt Breakfast
And dozens of other events which require meals.
