LET SOMEONE WALK IN YOUR SHOES!
As part of this year’s Stewardship program, “The Walk”, the Mission Committee is encouraging Greenfielders to purchase new pairs of “walking” shoes to be donated to Crossroads of Michigan, a social service outreach agency in Detroit. Crossroads offers assistance in the form of a “hand up”, or in this case, a foot up!
Please bring your NEW shoes in any size (children’s and adult’s) and deposit them, through November 15, in the container provided in Fellowship Hall. This is a wonderful opportunity to care for and support the homeless and needy in our community.
Life, will, of necessity, be very different this season at the Welcome Inn day center for the homeless in southeast metro Detroit. There will be less guests, more staff, and social distancing. The circumstances have changed; the need has increased.
Saturday, November 14 we are hosting a Volunteer Orientation to share the plans for this upcoming season, which begins on Monday, December 14 at 7AM. You can attend in person at Starr Presbyterian, corner of 13 Mile and Crooks. A maximum of 40 socially distanced participants will be allowed. A SignUp Genius link will be posted on Monday, Nov. 2 for registration. The orientation will be recorded and be made available a few days after the meeting on the Welcome Inn’s website http://www.sochwi.org/
HOLIDAY FOOD POUNDING NOVEMBER 15
There are many opportunities for all of us to provide a service to people who are in need. However none is more rewarding than providing food at holiday time. Greenfield’s Mission Committee is sponsoring such an opportunity, with the HOLIDAY FOOD POUNDING.
On Sunday, November 15 bring your collected food to worship or to the drive up food drop off from 12-2pm in the church parking lot. Just pull up and someone will collect the bag from your car.
Items to collect:
a can of corn, evaporated milk, sweet potatoes, pumpkin, green beans or peas, cranberry sauce, a box of corn bread, dressing mix, pie crust mix, tea or can of coffee. Please help our Mission Committee provide to people who are in need.
The downriver Guidance Center will once again be the recipient of our gifts from the Giving Tree. However, due to safety concerns, the process will be different this year. Instead of choosing a specific gift tag and shopping for that child, we are requesting gift cards in a variety of denominations (from $5 to $100, please ensure the amount is designated on the card or envelope). Please select major retailers that are in the downriver area to make it more convenient for the parents to shop, such as Meijer, Target, and Walmart. The gift cards will be divided and distributed to several families and delivered at the end of November to allow time for shopping.
Watch for brief descriptions of the families that we will be helping. If you can participate this year, please bring your gift cards to the church. There is a secure box in the church and a drive by drop off in the parking lot on Sunday, November 29 from 12 to 1:30. Thank-you in advance for your generosity!!!!
If you have any questions, please contact Susan Howell or Wendy Dawson.
