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.
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.
NEW WOMEN’S BIBLE STUDY
Study will begin January 9th. Over 8 sessions, Kelly Minter will lead you through the Letter of 2 Corinthians, exploring the anchoring truths of bearing treasures in jars of clay, meeting Christ through a pressing thorn, opening wide your heart in the midst of hurtful relationships, and what it means to embrace the lost and lonely as ministers of the new covenant. Each of us has a message to proclaim and live by: Because of Jesus the old has gone, the new has come. Any questions, see Gayle Radavich.
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.
