The Water Ministry offers community and hospitality to the needy and homeless in our neighborhood. We provide showers, laundry service, a place to relax and talk, and a hot midday meal. Parishioners and other volunteers manage the showers, run the washer and dryer and cook and serve the meals.
When the church closed at the start of the pandemic the Ministry had to shut its doors too. In June of 2021 we reopened offering showers two days a week to a small number of guests. Paying careful attention to the safety of our guests and volunteers, we have gone back to a full range of service since then. The number of guests is gradually increasing.
Some of our neighbors badly need a place to visit where they can meet some of their daily requirements and where they are treated with respect. The Water Ministry meets that need.
The Water Ministry is a wonderful opportunity to love and serve the Lord in a real and tangible way. To sustain the Ministry we need more volunteers. There are opportunities to cook; to manage the showers and laundry; and to serve coffee and tea and meals to our guests.
