SOUTHWEST INTERFAITH—DECEMBER 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.
Just a reminder that in case of severe winter weather, WISN/Channel 12 is where STOC’s cancellation information will be found. You can either watch WISN or check http://www.wisn.com/weather/closings for the most updated information.
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 or study on Islam, Tuesday evening, 6:30pm. Please join us.
Hospitality Center Requests
The Hospitality Center in Racine is short of personal items such as: Soap, Wash Clothes, Towels, Toothpaste, Tooth Brushes, Wool Socks, Winter Clothing and Hand Sanitizers. Please be generous and help out in this time of need.
Thank you, and God bless
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.
