Woodburn Lutheran Contributes to Serving Simply

UncategorizedComments Off on Woodburn Lutheran Contributes to Serving Simply

Recently WLS was blessed with the opportunity to provide a check for $2,000 and some much needed supplies to Serving Simply.  Serving Simply has been the focus of our 2nd quarter chapel offering.  Every Saturday, at Freimann Square in Fort Wayne, this group serves the homeless.  Our 7th and 8th graders were able to take part in this ministry one Saturday in early December when they joined Serving Simply at Friemann Square and helped hand out items to the homeless.  Serving Simply provides food, clothing, and other items we often take for granted.  Yet, they provide so much more than these items to these people in need.  They also provide hope.  The homeless in Fort Wayne have come to know that Serving Simply will be there every Saturday. Through this regular presence and service, the homeless can rely on those that lead this group every week.  The leader of Serving Simply recently visited with all of our students and shared a little bit about what they do.  His message to the students was twofold: he thanked them for their contributions and he also hopes they are thankful for all they have.  While we are blessed with a warm bed, toothpaste, and regular meals, the homeless do not have access to these types of things regularly.  WLS is thankful for the ministry Serving Simply provides and the opportunity to contribute.  Many are blessed each week by the work they do.
