Community Reach

SOUTHWEST INTERFAITH—November Focus

Southwest Interfaith is an ecumenical organization which furnishes several means of assistance to older adults in the southwest corner of Milwaukee. The transportation ministry helps people who don’t drive, in making appointments and running errands.  The home assistance ministry helps with chores around the house and yard.  Both ministries help people maintain an independent lifestyle.  Visitation is a very important facet of the Southwest Interfaith ministry.  Loneliness can be just as incapacitating as a physical disability.  S.T.O.C. was one of the founding members of Southwest Interfaith.  Please do your best to keep this tradition alive.



Study of Islam

Between the scriptural connections and the political importance, we felt that Islam would be a great subject to study.  All are welcome to join Men’s Bible Study, Tuesday evening, 6:30pm.  Please join us.


A Friendly Reminder

Pledge cards were distributed the end of October. As our treasurer works to put together the budget for next year it is helpful to have as much information as possible.  If you have a pledge card that you plan on returning, please do so at your earliest convenience.  Thanks so much.



Counter needed

 

We are in need of someone to join the team of counters.  You would be paired up with another team member and count the offering after service about every six weeks.  Is this something you feel called to do?  Please chat with Tammy Wyman if you are interested.
