TASK FORCE FOR REOPENING THE CHURCH A Task Force has been formed to discuss how we will be reopening the church for services and activities. The changes will occur as Governor Kelly will dictates. The committee will be meeting when changes require adjustment. Pastor Mease is anticipating offering virtual services for an extended time period. Laurie Fritz discussed having VBS in a virtual format. More information will be forthcoming.
With the COVID-19 restraints on everyone, Doorstep has continued to provide services to our neighbors in need through phone intakes. We have been assisting with food, rent, utilities, prescriptions, dental and gas vouchers. We know we will continue to see more people in need as this continues, and we try to get back to ‘normal’. We appreciate those who have donated food and/or money during this time to help Doorstep. The staff and food room volunteers have continued working to help our neighbors.
We are working on opening the clothing room on limited days, and by appointment only, and taking donations. Once we have something in place we will update our volunteers, board members, coordinators, member congregations and the public through our Facebook page… Doorstep Inc.

Doorstep’s 3rd Annual Neighbor Helping Neighbor Walk/5K Run is Sunday, October 4th at 2pm at Lake Shawnee. Plan to join us in getting some exercise around the lake, and raise funds for Doorstep this October. The walk/run has been moved to a Sunday afternoon this year in the hopes of competing less with other events during that time of year! Mark your calendars!!
