Help Make a Difference for Someone and for the World

Dear Old First,

President and CEO of the United Nations Foundation, Kathy Calvin once said, “giving is not just about making a donation. It is about making a difference.”

Those words rang so true as it relates to Old First. We are a church that gives to make a difference. Our passion for outreach and compassion for those less fortunate extends beyond prayer Sunday mornings.

I believe that a huge part of this church is serving others, and to me that’s truly a blessing.

I’ve said this before and I’ll say it again, without your efforts, time and energy we could not provide over 11, 600 yearly meals to our Saturday morning and shelter guests. Nor could we sustain our clothing pantry that provides clothing and toiletries to dozens of guests on a weekly basis.

I am reaching out to you today to say thank you. Thank you for volunteering to make a difference in the lives of others.

I sincerely hope that you will continue to give your time and energy to the individuals we serve, as well as to our many outreach ministries. Including our current running Saturday Breakfast Ministry.

To date, we are in need of volunteers and breakfast teams for this ministry. In particular, we are looking for volunteers for Saturday August 6th, volunteers and a team to serve breakfast Saturday August 13th and lastly volunteers and a team to serve breakfast Saturday August 27th.

Again, as stated by Kathy Calvin, let’s give not just by making a donation, but give to make a difference.

If you have an interest in this ministry or any of our other outreach ministries, please feel free to send me an email at athomas@oldfirstucc.org.  I look forward to speaking with you.

With much gratitude,

Alesha, Outreach Coordinator.
