As a church, we already recognize how dangerous winter is for the homeless community, and we seek to support those in need through our Winter Shelter.
Now, we are asking you to continue this commitment and celebrate the spirit of Thanksgiving generosity by bringing men’s winter sweaters, coats, and blankets to church the next two Sundays.
On Sunday the 22nd, we will ask EVERYONE to bring their donations to the front of the church for a blessing. If each one of us could locate one item to contribute — or own or from someone else — we’d get more than a 100 in one fell swoop! These offerings will form part of our giving of time, talent, and financial gifts on Stewardship Sunday, a sign of our commitment to following Christ’s call to pass on what we have received.
Remember that it takes a network of care to support our Outreach programs – ask your friends, your coworkers, your family. Everyone can be involved in this work!
