We invite you to join your Women of Vision in Action team in October!
Just as World Vision values all people, and is committed to serving the poor internationally, Women of Vision values all people and is committed to partnering in World Vision's Work internationally. Women of Vision In Action is an extension of World Vision's commitment, by serving the poor in our local community.
On Thursday, October 17th, from 4:15 to 7:00 p.m. we will be coming alongside CityteamPortland located at 526 SE Grand Ave. in Portland. This ministry's purpose is to demonstrate to their neighbors what the grace of God is all about. That grace comes in many forms: a nutritious meal, a safe & warm bed, a hot shower, clean clothing, a hygiene kit, a warm coat, long-term transformational programs, AA meetings, a place to discover God, or just someone to talk with about their homelessness and addiction issues. The Cityteam staff truly care about them and have been blessed to see God work miracles and transform lives. Please go to www.cityteam.org/portland for more information about this ministry.
Our task will be to prepare and serve a meal to about 150 homeless and the dedicated residents participating in the Cityteam recovery program. Since the needs at Cityteam have increased over the years and our team size is limited to 12, we could use extra help in the preparation of the food items we will be serving. If you are unable to join the team for the evening service but would like to prepare and donate a dish for the dinner, please let us know by calling or emailing April Veit or Sandi Baumchen (contact information below). More details (menu, etc.) will follow once the team is formed.
To begin the sign-up process, please scroll to the bottom of this page. If you have any difficulties, just contact April or Sandi (below) and we will take care of it for you. Note: WOVIA will be offering only one project a month due to a full Women of Vision Calendar, so sign up quickly if you want to be assured of getting a spot.
Joyfully serving together in Jesus' Name,
