Another mission is happening at our church… right in the middle of this pandemic. The Shower Truck, which is part of our Tuesday Community Dinner, has added another service. The Shower Truck is now providing laundry service for our dining clients. Their clothes are washed and dried. They can wait for them or pick them up next week. Thanks to you in the congregation, funds were raised in March and matched by a one-time grant from the Florida Conference of the U.C.C. to fund the Shower Truck for a little over a year. Providing this new laundry service eliminates the burden on the ecology as their clothes were often discarded when provided with a new shirt or socks prior to their shower. Additionally, Tim and Kate Murphy (the founders of the showerthepeople.us non-profit out of Riviera Beach operating the truck) were spending hours in a laundromat on the weekend washing and drying towels.
The Mission Committee is reaching out to our congregation again to fund this additional ministry. You, the congregation, responded with care, concern and cash when asked previously. I hope you can find it in your hearts to support this new mission with the same enthusiasm. We will approach the Florida Conference, again, to match our donations. So, the more you give, the greater amount for which we can apply. Sounds like a win-win to me.

Thank you for your support,
