Monday, November 25, through Monday, December 2
We still need one evening driver on Thursday, November 28, and one overnight host on Sunday, December 1. Instructions for everyone will be sent out soon. Sign up here. Thanks to all for making our 2019 Rotating Shelter possible!
Each year, we partner with Temple Beth Emeth and Blue Ocean Faith to provide shelter for homeless men during Thanksgiving week through the Rotating Shelter, a program of the Shelter Association of Washtenaw County. Volunteers provide transportation to and from Genesis, serve as overnight hosts, provide meals, and socialize for a couple of hours with our guests. To become part of this eye-opening and very important ministry, visit www.saintclareschurch.org/rotating-shelter.
Order deadline is November 24 for pick up at St. Clare’s on December 1 or 8.
Get ready to decorate your home for Advent/Christmas AND support the youth ministries of our church! You can order greens (cedar roping [by the foot]; 16-inch and 32-inch wreaths in boxwood, mixed greens, and balsam) after church (see Mary Wise) or online (click here). Proceeds benefit our youth ministry.
Each year the Michigan Foster Care Closet throws a holiday party for foster families and children. We are excited about hosting a donation drive to help in this effort this year. We have been asked to donate toys and family board and card games that meet the following criteria.
- All items must be brand new.
- Name brand items (no dollar store type quality please).
- Gifts are needed for infants through teenagers.
- Do not wrap the gift.
Bring your donations to church on Sunday, starting November 17, and drop them in the basket marked TOY DRIVE. These toys will be collected through Sunday, December 8. Any toys collected after that will be given to another worthwhile charity.
