January was quiet compared to December!  Dinner at Phillips Village on January 19 was a success, given 51 reservations.  There were 39 who came to the Activities Room for the dinner and fellowship, and 14 folks requested meals delivered to their apartments.  The menu featured delicious Italian food including pasta, sauce, meatballs and sausage, salad, bread, and desserts.  Our 25 WPC volunteers worked diligently to prepare, serve, and clean up after the dinner.  Many thanks to all!

Praying for Hope Ministry

We are asking our congregation to lift up our New Beginnings ministries in prayer.  For February our focus will be on Hope Ministry, associated with Holy Trinity Church and located on Ridge Road, just east of Phillips Road in Webster.

The ministry provides for food, clothing, furniture, and other needs for Webster residents who come to them.  Each person is received in a spirit of compassion, care, faith and hospitality.  WPC members have volunteered at Hope Ministry’s Foodlink food distributions, the garage sale fundraiser, and the Christmas gift and food distribution event in December.

The Director of Hope Ministry comments that, “Prayers are so needed.  I would like prayers to open our eyes and hearts to see and respond to those in need, those struggling with addiction, those who are limited by the weather, those in need of healthcare.”
