“We all aspire to act justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with our God.”
In the words of Micah 6:8, Pastor Beumer sees the inspiration behind his Christian Reformed congregation’s support for SPiN Cafe.
“When SPiN was just starting, some members of our church had friendships with people at SPiN. We’ve been preparing the Wednesday night meal here in our church ever since, and taking the food down to SPiN. We’ve been doing it for close to four years.”
SPiN Cafe would like to recognize St. Stephen’s Church for their continuous support, doing “small things regularly” to assist our mission.
Rev. Rilla Barrett, St. Stephen’s Priest-in-Charge, readily admits “SPiN is a favorite of ours” when parishioners share what they have with their neighbors. Rev. Barrett volunteers serving dinners when she can, as do members of the church.
St. Stephen’s is known for their creative ways of raising donations for SPiN and numerous other causes around town. At a Valentine’s Day “Love Song Singalong,” donations went to SPiN for every dedication and request to the piano player. Clever!
Many thanks from SPiN Cafe to our friends at St. Stephen’s. Strong community partnerships allow us to welcome our guests and serve them well.
