The Pork Roast and Oyster Dressing Dinner has been enjoyed by the congregation and people from surrounding communities for many, many years. Some maintain that it has been a featured event for at least 50 years or more. After a brief hiatus in the early 1990s the dinner was offered again as part of our congregation’s 225th Anniversary celebration, and it has been ongoing ever since! Usually served family style in several seatings, the menu includes roast pork, oyster dressing made from fresh oysters, mashed potatoes with gravy, seasonal vegetables, and freshly made home baked desserts provided by the women of the congregation. Don’t have time to stay and eat? Don’t worry, you won’t miss it. If you call ahead, you may order take out meals! There is also a large assortment of home baked goodies to purchase and bring home. It is hard to resist a pie, crumb cake, or loaf bread prepared by one of our bakers!  Be prepared to be amazed by the quilts and hand sewn items that will be on sale by our Tuesday Quilting group. Over the years the proceeds from the dinner have gone to Lutheran Disaster Relief, the North Hunterdon Community Food Pantry, local families in need, purchasing new tables, chairs, and dishes for our dinners, and our own Spruce Run Preschool. Other groups within the congregation have also donated for these causes. This is a wonderful event in which members of all ages have participated and through which many people have benefited from the fellowship it affords.
