One Bistro - April Newsletter

Volume 2 | April 2020

Our Neighbors' News

A Note from One Bistro's Board President, Denise Davis:

As we focus on the three parts of our Refresh, Recovery, Mission - I am overwhelmed by God's goodness, provision and timing. Truly, we had no idea how all of this would be playing out when we made the decision to step out in faith a few weeks ago to utilize this time for Chef Greg to recover and for Shayne to reach out to "our neighbors," the volunteers and churches who support us and let them know how much we value them and that we are thinking about them and praying for them... AND... then made an even bigger leap of faith to go for the painting and floors...What I do know is that earnestly seeking God, first, in all things, and then following him in obedience and trusting him for the outcome is ALWAYS the best thing to do.

We are so thankful for your support and involvement in our mission:

"To provide a place where our neighbors eat and
come together as one community."

Refresh & Recovery Mission

Chef Greg's Recovery

Thank you for continuing to pray for Chef Greg and Shayne as they work through Chef's recovery from shoulder surgery, physical therapy etc. He is recovering very well, is in great spirits and being very diligent in all of his exercises. And...he can't wait to be back and better than ever!!
Otto is taking very good care of Chef Greg

Refreshing the Bistro

Shayne...On a Mission

Besides supporting Chef Greg in his recovery, Shayne has also been busy reaching out to hundreds of One Bistro's volunteers, churches, sponsors and other partners. She has been able to pray for them and encourage them during this unsettled time. In turn, she is humbled by the support from the community and volunteers and so grateful for their prayers as well. We're all eager for the time we can gather together in person again!!

Our Concept

All menu prices are a “suggested price” as we embrace a “pay what you can afford” concept with the following payment options.

  1. Pay what you can afford. If unable to pay, give your time in service as payment.
  2. Pay the full amount of the suggested price.
  3. Pay the full amount of the suggested price, plus a little extra to “pay it forward.” When you “pay it forward” by $6, you cover the cost of one meal for someone else to enjoy.
