CARE AND OUTREACH PROJECT
For our current project we are collecting things for the Women’s Shelter kitchen. When the abused women leave their home, they leave everything behind. The shelter finds them jobs and helps them get set up in a place to live. We are asking for utensils, dishes, dish towels & cloths, pot holders, etc. Anything you would need in a kitchen. (This project runs thru February.)
PLANNING FOR SNOW
In general, whenever it’s possible, we will plan to keep our regular schedule. If weather is extremely bad, however, we will cancel services and activities. We will try to make that decision as early as possible – and we will communicate any cancellations with local radio stations (WATZ & WHSB) TV station, WBKB our web page(www.huronshoresfellowship.org and on the church Facebook Page ( Huron Shores Fellowship church/Facebook )
Even though we will try to maintain our regular schedule, we want you to feel comfortable about your own personal decision about traveling in bad weather. If your area happens to be dangerous, or if you are snowed in, we encourage you to use your own judgment. Please do not travel if it seems unsafe to you. Please know that we will understand your decision and – even if you have responsibilities here – we will find a way to cover for you. If you are able to come, please come.
