Churches celebrate local mission partnership

First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and Redeemer Lutheran Church recently celebrated the ninth anniversary of Friendship Feast—a free, hot meal, served 5-6:30 PM every Monday at 200 East 5th St. in Claremore.  The churches have shared this ministry and have served over 27,000 meals since January of 2011.
