Help Us Help the Homeless this Winter

Week of January 12-19.

Help us be a blessing to the homeless in our area.

We are fortunate to have groups who have already committed to prepare and serve each meal. Other ways you can help:

  • We need 4 servants to check our guests in and visit with them each night.
  • We’re also looking for overnight security.
  • Food, miscellaneous, and financial donations welcome too.
Look for the signup sheets at the Welcome Center in the Narthex beginning Sunday, December 15th.  For further information email Dave Cacner or Priscilla Van Steelant.

The following donations are also appreciated:

  • Motel favors (soap, etc.)
  • Combs
  • Toothpaste & toothbrushes
  • Feminine hygiene products
  • Towels & washcloths (new/used)
  • Clothing (extra large & up), coats, shoes, socks
  • Backpacks & duffel bags
  • Snacks
  • Plastic shopping bags

Please feel free to drop off your donations in the Church Office.
