This Month's Mission Focus

our monthly focus to transform the world through Jesus

Green Square Meals

This month's Mission Focus is Green Square Meals.

Located at 605 2nd Ave SE, Green Square Meals continues to serve people in need in our community. Their doors are open five nights a week for anyone in need of a hot meal. In 2019, they served 30,000 meals. Since the pandemic and the derecho this year, the number of homeless has increased which also has increased the daily number of meals at Green Square Meals.

We can help! Not only can we help physically serve a meal at Green Square meals, we can also financially support this important organization. A couple days a month, several people of our congregation assist with preparing food and feeding over a hundred meals each time to low income families and the homeless.

Please consider getting involved and supporting this month's Mission Focus. If giving by text, code is GSM. Thank you for making a difference in the lives of others in our community.
