Social Ministry Update
Updated March 14, 2023
The Social Ministry Team is working to assist the local Homeless Shelter and Loudoun Hunger Relief, as both of these organizations are seeing increased need within the community. The Homeless Shelter has been housing 75 people plus due to cold overnight temperatures. Many clients are families and senior citizens with medical needs. Our Savior’s Way will be collecting food and monetary donations to assist with this increased needed. A box to drop non-perishable goods is in the coat closet and you can always give to our Benevolence Fund via check or online giving.
