Mission In Action: Our Neighbor’s Place is back at First Covenant until February 26…
Support Our Neighbors’ Place Shelter: First Covenant is home once again to the overnight shelter and is running nightly until February 26. This Mission In Action outreach requires many hands to run smoothly. If you can volunteer, or offer donations or donated items contact Dale Sweet at [email protected].
This winter, 2018-2019, is the seventh year the overnight shelter for those without homes in Erie has been housed in Knox Hall at First Covenant for several two week sessions. All members of the congregation are encouraged to get involved in some way and support this “Mission In Action.” There are many ways to support the shelter. You can donate your time by offering to cover one of three different shifts. You can plan, prepare and serve an evening meal to our guests. You can donate much needed items or you can also make a monetary donation by contacting the church office. Our Neighbors’ Place will also set-up in Knox Hall again from March 13-26, 2019, and will be hosted by United Methodist Churches.
It takes an entire congregation to run a shelter and we cannot thank you enough for opening your hearts,
your schedule and your pocketbook in support of Our Neighbors’ Place.
Joy and peace, Dale and Pat
