From Our Pastor

Helping Our Neighbors

Yesterday afternoon, I received a call from Joanie Petty of the United Way. Joanie had just been in conversation with a young man recently released from jail. The young man was in need of many things, among them clothing and toiletries. So Joanie was calling me to see if the church could help with clothing and toiletries for this gentleman. 

I told Joanie of our Clothes Closet and of the toiletry bags we have for those in need. I arranged to meet someone from the United Way at the Uptown Ministry Center in order to find some clothing for this man (he had provided his sizes.) So we met at the Clothes Closet, found him some pants, some shirts, and some shoes. Joanie then met me and the United Way staff member at the entrance to the Ministry Center as we waited for the young man to come for his clothing. We had good conversation until he showed up. We then enjoyed meeting him and hearing about his plans for the future. I told him I hoped to see him again and welcomed him to the church anytime.
