By now I shouldn’t be, but every year I am surprised by Pastor Appreciation Month. More so, I am positively dumbstruck by the many heartfelt and reflective sentiments that are shared. And even more so than that, I am both humbled and encouraged to learn of the many prayers that are lifted for my family and me. It all fills me with unspeakable gratitude. Thank you.
GOD BLESS OUR MESSIAH VETERANS
Messiah's next service days are on November 14th & 16th. If you can help, please show up @ Franklin Ave Diner on either or both of those days.
"Here am I, send me!" - Isaiah 6:8 - BECOME A VOLUNTEER
There are many ways to serve at Franklin Avenue Mission. Pray to God to see where He leads you!
PERSONALS CLOSET - Volunteers help obtain, sort, and distribute hygienic products (soap, shampoo, tooth brushes, etc...) to the men, women and children of Flint's East Side on the first Tuesday of each month.
THE LUKE CLINIC - Volunteers provide a wide range of services. Medical professionals can volunteer their time and services. Other volunteers are also sought after to help provide child care for mothers with multiple children.
CUSTODIAL PROGRAM - Volunteers serve as mentors to trainees and help them prepare to find employment after their completion of the program. Volunteers should have professional experience in any field, and be able to confidently coach mentees through an interview process.
MERCY HOUSE - Volunteers help mentor mothers and/or their children. Tasks might include teaching how to cook a dish, tutoring kids in math, or simply spending time on the play ground. All volunteers must undergo a background check.
CLEAN & GREEN - Volunteers like working outdoors and love the smell of fresh cut grass! Throughout the summer, tasks include mowing lots and removing garbage and debris.
THE UPPER ROOM - Volunteers help prepare fellowship meals for our community to gather around following worship on Sundays evenings. All rostered LCMS pastors, vicars and deacons may volunteer to preach when their congregations attend.
