The deacons are leading us in gathering gently used winter coats for the residents of the Good Samaritan men's shelter. We’ll distribute them to the men on Saturday, November 23 from 9am–11am along with some refreshments. You can join in serving our city through this by donating a coat on Sunday or giving it directly to Josh Sawyer, signing up to help distribute the coats or to provide baked goods, or bringing in any of the items on the shelter’s wishlist: laundry detergent, paper towels, single-ply toilet paper, cleaning supplies, twin sheets, bar soap, air freshener, and copy paper.
The deacons invite you to contribute to caring for the facility that we are grateful to call home. Painting, repair work, and minor maintenance are all on the docket, so anyone with these skills is able to contribute. Childcare will be provided in IronSpace and we need to purchase supplies, so it’d be helpful to know ahead of time how many people are coming. You can RSVP—and direct any questions—to firstname.lastname@example.org.

One of the most effective ways to grow spiritually at IWC is to connect with the life of the church. That is accomplished through serving alongside others, through living lives in community in home groups, and through men’s and women’s ministry. We'll be throwing a Connect Fair during and after the service on February 24 make that process just a bit easier. Enjoy homemade goodies and get to know those who can help you connect with a home group, ministry team, or men's/women's ministry. Questions? email@example.com.
