Challenge: Go out and organically outreach to one person this week!

WHAT WE’VE BEEN UP TO:

  • Organic Outreach Training
    Pastor Kevin and Pastor Tom gave an incredible class on reaching out to people organically. Sharing the word of Jesus should not be difficult for us and both Pastor Kevin and Pastor Tom gave us some wonderful ideas of how to share our faith with others. So let’s go out and practice what we have learned!

FOOD DONATIONS
Although you have already helped us serve so many people in need, our Food Pantry is low. If you can donate, our needs are: dried beans and rice, peanut butter, soup, canned vegetables, canned fruits , canned chicken, beef stew, canned tuna, pasta and pasta sauce. To those of you who have already donated food, we so appreciate it, thank you!

WHAT’S HAPPENING THIS WEEKEND:

  • Monterey Pines and Windsor Care Visits, Saturday, June 18th
    Join us, as we love on the residents at Monterey Pines and Windsor Care this Saturday! Our visits are always so special to them and it is our chance to share Jesus Christ with them. Please meet at Monterey Pines and Abraham Wilson will give instructions to those of you that want to go to Windsor Care.
  • Women’s Shelter Visit, Sunday, June 19th
    Come hear Annah Muiruri as she gives a DVD presentation (narrated by Jensen Franklin) about “What’s Holding You Back From Accomplishing Your Goals?” Help to give these women the encouragement they so need in their lives. Hope you can make it!

WHAT’S HAPPENING THIS MONTH:

  • Annual Backpack and School Supplies Drive, Thru June
    As the drive continues we are still in need. Economic times are hard so if you can donate some #2 pencils or pens that would be great, every little bit helps! Please place your donated items in the barrels. Thank you to all of you who have already donated.
  • “Get on the Bus”, Saturday, June 18th
    We will be sponsoring a bus of children that will be going to Soledad Prison to visit their Dad’s for Father’s Day. We want to thank Lisa Pray for the incredible job she did on this project and to the Ministries and their leaders for supplying the items for the “stay connected bags”:
    Children’s – Pastor Roy Pina         Women’s – Karen Hughes
    Men’s – Pastor Keith Krueger        High School – Pastor Nate Tibbs
    Greeter’s – Sharon Burwell             Benevolence & Hope- Debra Federico
    Young Adults – Zach Harney         Celebrate Recovery – Pastor Dennis McFadden

    Pastor Andrew Manies is organizing a group of people who will be stuffing the backpacks with all the donated supplies. We will meet in the Fellowship Center at Shoreline (lunch will be provided). Come join us and be a part of finalizing this great service project!

Hope & Benevolence-Community Outreach kicks off Food Pantry

On February 21, 2009, in Community Outreach, by CommunityOutreach

food-pantry-for-webStarting in March, Shoreline Community Church will become an official food pantry for The Food Bank for Monterey County. The Food Bank is part of America’s Second Harvest Food Bank. The Food Bank believes, as do we, the effects of the downturn in the economic situation in our area are greatly impacting many in our community and will continue to do so.  Did you know the Food Bank of Monterey County serves over 50,000 monthly? More people than ever before will need our help in these difficult times.  During the 2006-2007 fiscal year they served 36,218 households through the Emergency Food Assistance Program alone. In 2007-2008, they served 55,964 households, an increase of 54%. We at Shoreline want to be able to help our community  stretch those food dollars.  In March and April we are going to conduct another food and basic needs drive to help stock our pantry  (along with being able to stock from the food bank).  Every month we are having a drive of some kind. When you pack up for church on Sundays, please remember how you can help so many by bringing in your items for the less fortunate. Please give as generously as you can. These are just some of the items we would like to collect:

  • Detergents, soaps, toiletries
  • Diapers (all sizes)
  • Diaper Wipes
  • Towels, Wash Clothes
  • New underwear & socks (adults and kids) for our clothes closet

Small appliances and furniture, please call the church or contact dfederico@shorelinechurch.org or jatwell@shorelinechurch.org. Also we are looking for a refrigerator for our food pantry. Thank you so much as you continue to share your blessings.

For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat.  I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink.  I was sick and you looked after me.  I was in prison and you came to visit me. Matthew 25:35-36
