COVID19 and The Red Door Ministry Continues!

 April 15, 2020  The Church of the Advocate

No Group Meetings but our Ministry continues

 

                                

Happy Easter !

 
Since March 6th we have not had group worship or meetings but our Ministry and the need for it, has grown and continues to grow. The need grows as more people become jobless and also the blessing of donations and food supplied has increased to meet that need!  While we are constantly adapting, we have found that we deeply miss sharing our weekly Holy Eucharist and our Tuesday scripture reflection.  That spiritual sustenance followed by gathering around tables to share a meal shapes our commuity, forming us in ways that build mutual trust and regard for one another.

 

The blessing of donated funds and food has increased to meet the growing need!  On Easter Sunday we fed over 100 people a full Easter meal with all the trimmings and ALL the Love!  We send our gratitude to Food Connection and Pack’s Tavern.
In gratitude for the care we are receiving, The Red Door is partnering with the Asheville Poverty Initiative and 12 Baskets, to provide lunches for those housed at the Harrah’s Cherokee Center in downtown Asheville. Also we will continue Sunday meals to-go at The Red Door as long as we possibly can.
During this crisis, coordinated through The Food Connection, local chefs and restaurants are able to provide meals to people in need like the homeless, jobless, homebound seniors, and service industry workers who have lost their jobs with this free meal because of donations from the general public, your donations.
If you’d like to donate, please go to this link for the Food Connection website,

Participating in their vision to feed the hungry and   support chefs and restaurants is a way we can connect to some positive energy and help make a difference!

                       

                     

                                                      

A blessed Easter to you as we all seek signs of resurrection and new life!

In Christ’s love,
