We are officially 22 days into the new year. Can you believe it?! Time really does fly by even during Covid times. As always I have announcements for you:
- Outreach has decided to slowly bring back clothes! Starting this Saturday 1/23, we will be adding a jeans table and every guest will now be able to get a pair of long pants. Every week, I plan to have a different article of clothing so that way our guests will receive a variety of clothing.
- Also, thanks to one of our Saturday volunteers, we are going to have 25 outreach T-shirts made. I am still working on the logo, but the idea is to sell the shirts to church members or the outside community (if interested) and all of the profits will solely be used to fund Outreach Ministry efforts.
- The Shelter has been going well, and I want to thank everybody who has signed up to make meals for our guests. I know the guests appreciate the dinners they have been receiving.
