Main Street Mission Classic Christmas Shoppe

Announces the Classic Christmas Shoppe

 

      Offering Christmas to those struggling financially helps to alleviate stress on families and allows parents to make better use of their means to provide necessities, while not missing out on the joy of Christmas giving.  Yet, how we do this is very important. While offering gifts that we choose, purchase and deliver may feel really good for the giver, it may come at a great cost for the recipient.  Having the opportunity to make an exchange, to do their part and to choose their own gifts for their children preserves dignity for families in need.  The gift of dignity is truly the best gift we could ever give someone.

    Our Shoppe is a little different this year.  Instead of a one day event our store will be open at the South Rowan YMCA for 3 days: Dec. 7, 8 and 9 this year (with set up days on Dec. 5 and 6).  We hope to make it even more like a real store experience so that our neighbors truly feel like they are shopping (just like we do) for Christmas. To volunteer please see sign up link below.

One Can Do More

On Sunday September 10 we gathered together at Main Street Mission to break ground on our building project.

Hurricane Harvey swept through Texas and then Hurricane Irma tore through Florida. Our prayers are with  everyone who has experienced and will experience devastation and hardships due to these powerful hurricanes. So many people are in need and God's people rush to help. Disasters such as these have a way of unifying humanity. People are rescued and cared for. Teams of workers come to repair and rebuild. Life is shared.   Life is shared at MSM through our food pantry, our Getting Ahead Classes and Bridges Training. We are in the midst of our Capital Campaign, and our Ground Breaking Ceremony was Sunday, September 10.

We had a glorious  celebration and we are so grateful for everyone who has contributed, but we still have much more to do. Due to our Capital Campaign, our operational budget which supports our day to day operations, has suffered. I understand this is common during a capital project, and I also understand that if we do not share this and ask for help, no one will know.  There are so many needs in the world, but many of our neighbors continue to struggle to meet their basic needs. We appreciate any contribution that you can help us with at this crucial time. Our goal is to have a successful short term Capital Campaign and then be able to concentrate solely on our operational budget again. Thank you for your continued love and support!   "The group of believers was one in mind and heart. None of them said that any of their belongings were their own, but they all shared with one another  everything they had."   Acts 4:32    ~Anne Corriher
