What Would Jesus Do?
St. Luke’s deacons are highlighting Adopt A Family of Marin during November and December. They will be helping two families during the holidays by providing some Christmas gifts. If you would like to participate by making a purchase they will have a Christmas tree set up in the narthex and you can pick a gift request from the tree. You may also make a donation using the green deacons envelope. Questions? Ada Endress can answer your queries regarding this ministry
Adopt A Family provides subsidies for rental assistance, security deposits, utility payments, food vouchers and auto repair. By providing basic assistance to families, they help prevent the dangerous slide into homelessness for many families who would otherwise be without help. They work to help families stabilize their lives and create a plan of action to help them move towards a better life.
As you reach to turn up the furnace dial, remember many on the street don't have that option. As weather turns cold and the rains fall it brings the opening of the REST (rotating emergency shelter team) winter shelter. In the past, St. Luke has participated by serving a Friday evening meal, once a month, at their temporary women's shelter where about 20 women are housed. Sign up to bring part of the meal or just show up to serve and enjoy some pleasant conversation. Check with Kathleen Murphy for more information.
