Students engage in fellowship while enjoying free food during BCM’s Noonday.

The USAO Baptist Collegiate Ministry (BCM) invites all students to come have free lunch and join in fellowship at their weekly Noonday event held every Wednesday during the academic year. This event takes place at the BCM building, located at 1822 W Alabama Ave, and runs from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

The BCM partners with local churches to supply home cooked meals once every week so there will never be the same meal twice. The organization will also accommodate students as they need such as offering the option to take the food on the go.

“It’s local churches that bring food, and it’s home cooked meals cooked by grandmas and grandpas,” Joseph Quickle, BCM director, said. “Students can get it to go or sit down and eat with us. If they want to come sit, they can, and if they’re not comfortable with it, they can get it to go and leave.”

For those who enjoy and want to socialize, Noonday is the place for that. Part of Noonday is getting to socialize with students from the BCM as well as students from outside the BCM. This event is open to all students on campus, and the BCM encourages students to come participate and socialize with one another.

“My favorite part about Noonday is getting to sit and share a meal with friends I usually don’t see during the week,” Abbee Mann, a theatre arts major and BCM member, said.
