200 families live in our church owned, low-income housing Settegast Heights Village. We provide them year-round with a safe and clean living environment along with plenty of opportunities for personal learning and growth. One of the more recent additions is a library. There are many ways to get involved through volunteering. With the holiday season fast approaching here is what you can do:
1. Show up for the Christmas party! That is a wonderful opportunity to tour the facilities and meet residents. The party will be at 7373 N. Wayside Dr., Houston, Texas 77028, on Saturday, December 8th, from 11am to 2pm. As you go, please consider bringing cookies and kid-friendly sandwiches.
2. Give a Thanksgiving Feast to a family in need! Since Settegast Heights is HUD assisted housing the residents do not have an easy time putting together a wholesome Thanksgiving Feast. That is why we ask members of our 16 Houston area congregations to step up to the plate (literally). The goal is to have $25 for each of the 200 families. That means each of our 16 churches should come up with $325 which breaks down to 16 people per congregation. Be one of the 16 and give $25! At St. John’s we will be collecting Turkey bucks every Sunday in October.
