Hello Centennial!

Someone once said, “When you volunteer you get back so much more than you give.”  This newsletter this month is filled with opportunities to receive back so much more than you give through volunteer activities, I hope you will take a look and see if there is anything the Holy Spirit is needling you about – even if you’ve been ignoring it for a while, it might be time to say – “Yeah, I’d like to receive back more than I give, where can I sign up?”

There will be an informational meeting on the Severe Weather Shelter Network Sunday, July 14 during Lunch on the Lawn in the Youth Room.  If you would like to learn more about this organization that provides emergency winter night shelter during the coldest winter nights, please grab a lunch and come join us.  Christy Smith, the Executive Director of SWSN will be presenting on needs for the upcoming winter season (Oct ’24-April ’25) and how you can help.  If you know of others outside the church that might find this meeting interesting, please invite them as well!

What is Severe Weather Shelter Network?

Connecting People and Providing Shelter

We provide emergency winter night shelter for adult individuals and couples. We build relationships with warm meals, conversation, and personal stories. We provide important resource connections for our guests to help them become stable and self-sustaining. We connect community partners with guests to provide resources and services. We have built educational tools to teach the surrounding communities about homelessness.
