A Caring Place Letter: How to Help Our Community

FIRST EVANGELICAL LUTHERAN CHURCH
287 W. Main Street
Xenia, Ohio 45385
937-372-7421

Dear Friend;

Some of you have asked how you or your organization could help serve those in need in our Community; this letter will answer how you can get involved.

Our Church hosts the “Caring Place” and every Thursday from 6:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. we open our doors and usually feed 170-200 folks. We have been doing this for a few decades and we have partnered with many other Churches, Organizations, businesses, governments, and people to feed all who arrive without any judgments.

This year we have some dates that have not yet been spoke for and we could use some help. Our Church fills in the holes and when we partner with an organization we provide a fully stocked kitchen, and a room set up with tables and chairs. Your organization would provide the food, plates and some volunteers to help serve. If you want to make a monetary donation that is also very much appreciated and you can make a check out to First Lutheran, please provide a note that you want it to go to the Caring Place and it is tax deductible.

As of February 19, the dates that we have openings for are: May 8 and 22, June 5, 19 and 26, August 28, September 18 and 25, October 9 and 30, November 13, and December 4.

If this interests you please call Evie at our Church and she can answer any questions. Also, know you are welcome to worship with us any time. I am confident you find our Congregation welcoming and know that our Pastor Alicia starts worship Sunday’s at 9:30 a.m.

We appreciate your time and consideration, we wish you all God’s Peace.

Sincerely;

John Saraga,
Council President

Our Purpose Statement:

“EMPOWERED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT WE WORSHIP,
