MOTHER’S DAY PURSE DRIVE FOR SHOEBOX MINISTRY
Ends the 1st week of May

For some of us, Spring is the time of year to go through closets, getting rid of the old so we have room for the new! On your mark, get set, GO!

We are also collecting gently used purses for Shoebox Ministry. These purses will be filled with toiletry and hygiene items when we do our Mother’s Day Drive, March 10-May 8. If you do not have a gently used purse to donate, we have extra empty purses each Sunday that you can pick up to fill with toiletry and hygiene items. Shopping for this event is fun, and we thank you for your continued support of this vital ministry. 

JUSTA CENTER LABOR DAY LUNCHEON
Mark your calendars for Labor Day Weekend 2022

After a 2-year break due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our church will again host the Labor Day lunch at the Justa Center. The Justa Center’s mission is to provide care and resources for homeless seniors. It provides meals daily except on holidays, which is where WE come in. We will provide a luncheon meal for about 150 people.

In addition to financial support, we will need volunteers to help prepare and assemble food on Sunday of Labor Day weekend, and to serve the lunch on Monday at the Justa Center (10th Ave. and Jefferson, Phoenix).

If you can help in this Faith in Action project, please contact Jim Meadows at 515-570-7806 ( jmeadows1889@gmail.com), or

LABOR DAY DONATION DRIVE FOR JUSTA CENTER – A HUGE SUCCESS!

Beatitudes Church has a long tradition of hosting an annual luncheon for seniors experiencing homelessness on Labor Day at the Justa Center. The pandemic made that impossible this year. However, the Beatitudes community did not give up, and raised $1,450 in monetary donations to give to the Justa Center! Thank you for your continued support of this important and vital mission! Check back soon for new ways you can help Justa Center continue to serve their seniors!

MARYLAND SCHOOL UPDATE

Our community partnership with Maryland School goes beyond our mentorship program and the community garden project to fill in the supportive gap whenever possible for these students and families. The school manages operation without the guidance of a PTA thanks to community partnerships like ours. Consider volunteering your time and/or financial gifts to help us continue this important initiative to make God’s love real. READ FURTHER HERE>
