Projects from the Past 
Painting and Glazing for Empty Bowls Saturday, September 12, 2015
Students spent a Saturday morning painting and glazing bowls for the Empty Bowls Luncheon.


Serving at Empty Bowls Luncheon Saturday, October 25, 2014
We helped serve a meal of home-made soup and bread.  Each bowl was available, by ticket, for $20.
Painting for Empty Bowls Saturday, September 13, 2014
Students from LCM and TWU's Kinesiology Club painted bowls in September  2013.
These bowls have one or two layers of paint. Next they will receive a clear glaze and then they'll be fired in the kiln. Once they have been fired, the colors will be bright and vibrant. What looks like pink now may be a dark blue. Part of the fun is predicting the final colors.
Empty Bowl Luncheon  Saturday, October 27, 2012
Students also volunteered at the 
Empty Bowl Luncheon in 2011.
Empty Bowls - Painting
August 28, 2010 
Students joined others from the Denton community at Christ the Servant Lutheran Church to help paint bowls to be sold at the Empty Bowl luncheon.  Hundreds of bowls were available; these were just a few. 
Servant Garden, Christ the Servant Lutheran Church 
May 1, 2010 
Students worked in the Servant Garden at Christ the Servant Lutheran Church.  Ninty percent of produce grown in the garden goes to feed the hungry in the Denton area.  They also prepared and enjoyed a meal made with organic food.

Students serve even when there's no "servant" event.  Board member Brandon Parsons and students Laura Maultsby, Aromi Knox, Beau Henderson, and Martin Converse clean up after a meal.  And have fun doing it! 
Mandeville and Baton Rouge, Louisiana     Spring Break 2010 
Students traveled to Mandeville, where they worked at the Northlake Nature Center on Saturday.  On Sunday they worshiped at Hosanna Lutheran, Mandeville and spent the afternoon in New Orleans.  On Monday & Tuesday, students worked on a home in Baton Rouge and visited LCM students from Louisiana State University.
Tarrant Area Food Bank, Fort Worth
February 20, 2010
Workers chose a mix of canned goods, juices, cereals, rice, beans and mixes to supply a variety of foods.

Okay, now they're relaxed.                 


Service at Briarwood Spring Break 2009  
Thirteen students and friends of LCM spent three days at Briarwood.  We cleaned the pool and the camp store and painted the exterior of the cabins at Quail Run, the center's motel-like facility.
Beau Henderson coordinated our work with the staff of Briarwood.
  Hard work means you need a little rest (Valter Monjane) . . . or target practice (Josh Murtha).    
Empty Bowl      October 2008   

Every year, people from Christ The Servant Lutheran Church and from the Denton community make and paint ceramic bowls.  Each October, the bowls are purchased and participants receive a meal of soup and bread.  Proceeds from the Empty Bowl project go to Our Daily Bread soup kitchen.
Josh Murtha and Amanda Russell serve LCM alum and board member Brandon Parsons.       Nettie Zehms, Linda Naylor, and Laura Maultsby serve soup to guests.
  Hundreds of people attend each year and thousands of dollars are raised to feed the hungry.

At left, Jeff Plato and his father, John, enjoy their meal.  John was chair of the board of Lutheran Campus Ministry at Denton for many years.

One of our favorite projects was building a ramp for a disabled person.        
       We spent a Saturday doing yard work for the Cumberland Presbyterian Children's Home near the UNT campus.
Earlier service projects included a different trip to Briarwood.  Some students grew up going to camp there and have served as summer staff.
