Looking for a Few Kind Men and Women

Years ago during the Great Depression, many people found themselves out of work with no hope of a job.  Hard working men and women were forced to travel throughout the country looking for a new beginning.  In our country’s recent history, it is again difficult to find work, and some families are struggling.  The depression-era hobos depended on the kindness of strangers in the communities they passed through for food and a warm dry place to sleep.  Near the entrance of a home they would leave their marks describing the hospitality they received there.  A simple outline of a cat was a sign that a kind woman lived there.  Others to follow would know they could likely receive a meal from that home. Our sister church, Covenant Presbyterian, is beginning a soup kitchen for the needy in our area. Aldersgate is developing two teams to work on Sunday evenings from 2 to 4pm at Covenant, serving and cooking.  Will you step forward and help?  We are having a planning meeting next Tuesday night (July 31st) at 7pm.  The plan is for our team to work only every other month.  That is not too much of a commitment, is it?  Call the office and let us know you are interested in being involved.
