Gethsemane supports many agencies that serve those in need in our community and regionally. We hear the names but often know little as to what their mission is and services provided. This year we will take the Lenten season to better understand four agencies that we actively support. There are only four weeks of Gethsemane Nights this year because we are hosting Family Promise clients the week of February 18-24.
Beginning on Wednesday, February 28, Rev. Tina Itson, Director of Development, will join us and speak on United Methodist Children’s Services located at 3940 W. Lisbon Avenue in Milwaukee.
March 7, Ralph Zick, Executive Director of the Hope Center located at 502 N. East Avenue, Waukesha.
March 14 – Heather Stoskopf, Development Manager, ERAs Senior Network, formerly Interfaith Senior Programs, will be here. (210 NW Barstow St., Suite 101, Waukesha)
March 21 – Jodie Cleary, Executive Director, St. Vincent de Paul, 818 W. Sunset Drive, Waukesha, will be speaking on the dynamics of poverty. This is an introduction to their mentoring program to help end the cycle of poverty.
Please join us at 6pm each week for a meal provided by Zilli Hospitality Group followed by the program.
We do need you to sign up to ensure there is enough or not too much food. The sign up is in the Sunday bulletins or call the Church office.
Help is also needed for serving, cleaning up as well as picking up the food from Zilli’s. Please contact the office if you can help or sign up in the Community Center.
