WELLSPRING IN MISSION & MINISTRY:
Worcester Fellowship –This wonderful ministry to the homeless is gearing up again to prepare for the start of their Café in the fall. The Café is held every Thursday and serves warm lunches to over 100 people. There are two ways you can help:
1. Donate cash in the Matthew 25 box which will be left on the altar from now on.
Starting this Sunday, all money donated to the Matthew 25 box will be spent on underwear (both male and female). The Worcester Fellowship is in dire need of these items as homeless people rarely have access to laundry facilities and, consequently, throw away underwear and socks when dirty.
2. Buddy Bags: Donate hygiene items for both males and females, socks, male and female underwear of all sizes, treats (energy bars, crackers, cookies, etc. all individually wrapped), small bottles of water, chap sticks, throat Lozenges, band aids, individual packets of Tylenol".
A big thank you to all who donated to the Worcester Fellowship so far. Because of the congregation's generosity, Wellspring will be able to financially sponsor 3 meals: 12/27/18, 1/3/19, 3/28/19. Please continue donating to this ministry as they are in dire financial need.
