A hot meal and an hour of fellowship is what members of St. Luke's Lutheran (Winter's) Church will bring to the dinner table tomorrow.

From noon to 1 p.m., church members will serve meatloaf, parsley potatoes, green beans, dessert and coffee to hungry Carroll countians in the hall of the Westminster United Methodist Church.

Charlotte Mullich, coordinator of the St. Luke's Shepherd's Table Committee, chose the menu because it was "nutritious and easy to make."

She and other committee members have worked together for the past month to prepare enough food for the anticipated 80 people they will serve. The group has also toured similar dining halls to learn how to operate their own. Members of the group include Mr. and Mrs. Orville Wunderlich, Vicky Plank, Roger Schnell, Mr. and Mrs. Randall Schuman, Mr. and Mrs. Clyde Boyles, Theresa Hibbert, Nancy Harter and Fred Mullich.

Elwood Myers, owner of Jubilee Foods in Union Bridge, has donated bakery items for the meal.

The Shepherd's Table is sponsored by the Shepherd's Staff, a "cooperative ministry of Westminster area churches," said Linda Sterner, who coordinates the Friday meals.

Each week, one of 10 participating local churches will serve a free meal at the Westminster United Methodist Church. The other churches in this effort include: Krider's United Church of Christ, Grace Lutheran Church, St. John's Lutheran Church, Westminster Church of Christ, Westminster Baptist Church, Westminster Church of God and New Life Foursquare Gospel Church, all in the Westminster area, and Faith Lutheran Church and St. Joseph Catholic Community of Eldersburg.
