From Kork Moyer, pastor of the Grace Brethren church which meets in Pottstown, Pennsylvania:
Repurposing A Church
TEAM DEPOT to Help Construct MAIN Street Shelter’s Home Base
Last year at this time St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church, and Still Waters Church in South Pottstown, PA, were recovering from the 2006 Schuylkill River flood. Months of tiring work were expended to clean out and clean up the Church and Parish House basements.
Now, just a little over a year later, these congregations are turning one of those basements into the home base for The Ministries at Main Street Homeless Shelter.
In conjunction with Greater Philadelphia Cares, the Pottstown Home Depot will arrive with their TEAM DEPOT community outreach group. From 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on July 14th, they will paint, construct, and do other work that needs to be done so that St. John’s Parish House basement will be ready for opening this fall.
TEAM DEPOT will bring their own volunteers, but we also invite anyone who would like to help to come out to St. John’s on July 14th. If you would like to volunteer please call 610-326-1120. A cookout lunch will be provided by the Ministries at Main Street volunteer cooks, Pastors Kork Moyer of Still Waters and Susie Folks of St. John’s.
The Ministries at MAIN Street, and Team Depot look forward to sharing the joy of preparing a place, to better help the least among us.
