Circle of Welcome Refugee Ministry – Very Close!
As of this writing, we are working with Lutheran Community Services Northwest to welcome a refugee family on January 23rd! We still don’t know if this family will enter the Circle of Welcome program, but if they do we will be ready to provide the crucial community support required to make a smooth transition. Please continue to pray for our progress, for the family we will meet, and for the work ahead.
We can still use more volunteers to make our team complete. We especially need servants willing to provide transportation to our eventual family. There will be opportunities to become trained in the near future, so don’t hesitate to contact co-coordinators Peggy Kreger (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Alice Rowe (email@example.com) with questions and inquiries. And be sure to attend our adult forum on this important ministry Sunday, February 3rd!
Food Bank Update – Volunteers Needed!
We’re looking to expand our food bank volunteer pool as we institute changes aimed at reaching more people in need. Have you thought about serving once a month (or more!) providing the love of God through nourishing sustenance? Are you a current volunteer who might enjoy working with other friends or family not connected with PRLC? Do you know someone who might enjoy serving? All are welcome. Shifts run every Tuesday from 1-3pm, and every Wednesday from 6-8pm. Please spread the word and contact Minister of Outreach Patrick Meagher (firstname.lastname@example.org) if interested. And a reminder to current and future volunteers to save the date of Sunday, Feb 10th, from 12-2pm for a luncheon and important training on our new procedures. We need you!
