Spiritual Renewal Group
Every Monday at 6 p.m. a spiritual renewal group meets in the Pat Daniel Conference Room. Group members will come together and take turns answering the same few questions each week (such as, “Share your week briefly from a spiritual respect.”) At the end of each meeting, we will pray for one another. The process will serve help us grow together as a community and encourage us as individuals to think about our daily lives from a spiritual perspective.
The group will meets for approximately one hour. Due to the nature of the group, participation is capped at around 10 people.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to be a part of the Monday evening group.

Holiday Box for Those Experiencing Homelessness — A program of The Stewpot
The holidays are almost here and everyone, including our friends in need, appreciate receiving gifts in the spirit of the season. You are invited to fill a shoe box with inexpensive necessity items that might make living on the streets a little easier. This is a great project for individuals, families, faith, school or scout groups, and civic organizations! Use an empty shoe box (standard size). Please only use boxes that have a separate bottom and lid. Please wrap the lid and the box separately. The box should not be wrapped shut when finished. Fill the box with a variety of small, inexpensive gifts. Use the gift ideas listed. Please fill boxes with ADULT, UNISEX items only. Once filled, place a rubber band around each box. Add a personal note in a separate envelope. You may enclose a holiday card or note from you/your family or group. (Please do not include addresses or phone numbers.) Place your note inside the box.
