In response to our Conversations with the Congregation, Session has committed to working on a church wide mission project. In June, we will be helping Wilkinsburg Community Ministry and their mission to serve the hungry in Wilkinsburg and the 15221 zip code. WCM serves over 10,000 meals per year to the young, old, veterans, disabled, families in need and the homeless.
We are asking for volunteers to serve lunch at South Avenue Methodist Church. Lunches are served daily from 6/11/18 through 8/24/18. We will work in teams of 3-4. Training and lunch is provided. Volunteers serve lunch, track participation and help clean up. Orientation is 6/11/18 at 10:00 am at SAMC. We are looking for a commitment of one day per week or one week in the summer (between 11:45 and 1:15). No experience is needed and I was told even one handed volunteers are welcome. If you are interested in working as a team member or captain , please see me or any of our Mission Committee. A free t-shirt is provided.
Also, we will be assembling hygiene kits in the Fall. In June, we are asking for donations of shampoo.
Thank you for considering WCM and our mission work. Grace and Peace to you.
