THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED DUE TO THE BAD WEATHER. IT WILL BE RESCHEDULED TO A DATE TO BE ANNOUNCED.
We will again be joining The Streetlight Ministry on January 26 for an evening of service to the homeless community. Please arrive just before 7:00p.m. and bring a meat or vegetable dish to serve 15-20. You may bring any dish you like for drop off in the kitchen when you arrive. Please be prepared for the possible roles: (a) greet people at the door and supervise clothing giveaway; (b) participate in the worship service until 7:40p.m., when the doors open to serve meals: (c) serve food to people in the food line (only 8-10 people can do this); (d) mingle, sit, and talk with those sitting to eat, and/or assist mothers with their younger children; or (e) help with clean up afterward, starting about 8:20p.m. or so. Please understand the ministry is fluid, and volunteers are encouraged to be both flexible in their roles and outgoing in their witness for Christ–the most pressing need during the ministry is to talk with those being served. Volunteers who cannot make it at 7:00p.m. are encouraged to come around 8:20p.m. to help clean up–the more the merrier.
The Streetlight is located at 1550 Prince William Parkway, Woodbridge; it’s on the north side of the road (left), after crossing over I-95 heading east, just before the intersection with Jeff-Davis highway (Rt 1). The parking lot is dark and poorly lit, so it’s easy to miss. Please call Hans or Carolyn Ritschard with questions at 703-670-8971
