With the cool crisp breezes of fall comes the promise of winter! Last year was our first year to serve God by supporting the warming shelter for the homeless. It was a unanimous decision of the Outreach team that we should provide that care again this year. The statistics speak for themselves as to the importance of the warming shelter. Three years ago, there were 2 deaths attributed to freezing temperatures, two years ago, one and last year, zero deaths, due mostly because the warming shelter was available. The scripture, Matthew 25:40 says, “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of these brothers of Mine, you did for Me.”
This year the shelter will be open from 6:00 PM to 8:00 AM. We will provide 3 volunteers for each of the three shifts. Hopefully, we’ll have one man on each shift. The shifts will be as follows: 6:00 – 11:00 PM, 11:00 PM – 3:30 AM, 3:30 AM – 8:00 AM. The sign-up sheet will be available after each worship service out in the foyer on October 20th and November 3rd, or you can contact JoDee Buso via email, email@example.com or phone 660-553-2180 for questions and signing up.
