“World on a Plate,” a ministry of Westminster Presbyterian Church in Lincoln, Nebraska, was awarded the 2016 McCormick Second Place Prize for Innovation. The program blends mission, stewardship and fellowship. One Friday each month, small groups meet in each other’s homes to share a potluck meal celebrating another country’s cuisine. The countries are chosen based on where Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) mission workers are serving, and during the evening one participant offers a presentation of the work being done in that part of the world by the PC(USA). A free-will offering is taken after the meal and sent to the mission workers to continue their ministry. Countries the groups have focused on include Ireland, England, Germany, Nicaragua, China, Korea, Philippines, Brazil, Russia and Peru. The group was founded by Kathleen Rohwedder and is now one of Westminster’s most active small group ministries.
