2019 is MARCHING on at Serving You!
Good morning Serving You Family! I pray this email finds you doing well. It has been a busy month at SYM. Praise God, assistance needs were down this month due to tax returns. We still assisted with over $5000 in emergency utility relief. And although utility needs were less this month, the food pantry was busy, busy, busy! We served 169 families, bring our total number of people touched this month by Serving You up to 350.
In addition to our normal schedule, we also celebrated a long-time volunteer, Ms. Billie, leaving us to move south. Ms. Billie faithfully served for over seven years at Serving You Ministries. We also celebrated the return of long-time volunteers, Bob and Margaret. Although they moved to Cullman, Bob and Margaret are faithfully driving back twice-a-month to continue serving with us.
March was a busy month for our "bonus" volunteers! We had several groups volunteer for Serve Sundays and had NorthPark church out for their Serve Day! Thank you to all our special weekend volunteers! Sunday's wouldn't be possible at Serving You without your help!
We also had our second workforce development class of 2019 start. The picture above is an exercise they were doing in class to help with team building. We are so excited about the students in this class and cannot wait to see what all God does with them!
As we look forward to spring and the new life God brings each year, we pray that God will continue to renew your desire for Him and renew your passion to pray, give, and serve. Please continue to pray for us and all of our team members. God is already doing big things here and we cannot wait to see what the rest of 2019 holds for the clients, volunteers, and friends of Serving You Ministries.
