Dear valued volunteers & readers
Due to County directives concerning the COVID-19, we have modified our gatherings drastically. No one is allowed to congregate at any of our locations. But fortunately for those we serve, SLM is considered emergency services and we have been asked by the city to please continue to provide food. Therefore, we are serving to-go boxes of food and hygiene kits, maintaining the required 6’ spacing by serving one person at a time. We will have Worship music playing in the background while serving, but no message. We are starting the food service earlier at all sites - 7:30pm to allow more time to safely serve by spreading out the lines.
I am asking all of you that are scheduled to serve for SLM to please continue to show up to serve and pray for our folks and share words of love and encouragement. We are following recommended guidelines regarding social distancing and availability of gloves and sanitizer.
Our folks need to see you all there continuing to show your support. This is a time when we need to show solidarity and living out Christ in our behavior.
With that being said, I do understand that if you have physical conditions, fall under a higher risk category, or have family situations that might keep you from coming and serving. Please know I completely understand. Please let us know as soon as possible if you are unable to attend.
We are doing everything we can to keep serving our loved ones living on the streets and keep everyone safe at the same time. Please pray for us all that we can continue sharing the word of God and a delicious hot meal with love to our folks and the country gets ahead of this soon.
