  • Boston, MA-NH (1888PressRelease) February 18, 2011 - The Leominster Bible Group, a local bible study/discussion group, will be volunteering to prepare and serve a meal to the poor and homeless at The Southern New Hampshire Rescue Mission on Saturday, February 19, 2011 from 12:00-1:30pm.

    There will be 5-6 stations of food that will include the group's best homemade chili, salads, bread and drinks. At 12pm Oscar Goss, the leader of the group, will make a brief announcement and share a few thoughts to those in attendance.

    "The Leominster Bible group is committed to doing everything we can to help our community," Oscar Goss said. "Serving the homeless of Nashua will give us a great opportunity to meet new people and give back to those less fortunate."

    The Southern New Hampshire Rescue Mission was founded in 2003. After taking over an old bar room and banquet hall, and with the help of many volunteers, they transformed it into a homeless shelter and soup kitchen which includes handicapped access, two rest rooms, multiple shower rooms, a day room and a dormitory. Dozens of churches and private businesses, hundreds of volunteers and thousands of donors have contributed their time, talents, finances and resources to coordinate the greater church's efforts to serve God and his people.

    According to Carlos, a volunteer worker at the shelter, "Probably the most amazing thing we've seen thus far is the hunger amongst our clients for genuine fellowship the kind that lingers. Every time we open the doors, and people come to obtain whatever we're offering; they love to sit and talk, listen, laugh, share, and just interact with us and our volunteers from the community."

    The Leominster Bible Group typically meets twice a month at the home of Oscar and Angele Goss for engaging bible study, food and fellowship. The meetings are open to anyone regardless of their religious affiliation. Ben Bolduc of Jaffrey, New Hampshire who is a regular volunteer at the Southern New Hampshire Rescue Mission found the group via Facebook and recently had this to say, "I was somewhat reluctant to go as I didn't know anybody, but I'm so glad I did, as the people are unbelievably friendly, it's Christ centered, we have great bible discussions, it's inspirational and I got to know a lot of nice people."

    "We're also looking forward serving at Ginny's Thrift Shop and Food Pantry in the months ahead." Oscar said.
