Safe Harbor Mission

You have probably seen Safe Harbor listed on the calendar for the 4th Sunday of each month.  In case you have wondered what this is, here are some details and ways to help if you would like.  The Koinonia church school class has been preparing and serving a meal to the homeless at the Salvation Army Safe Harbor Shelter every month for over 15 years.

Our meal consists of ham, rice, green beans, mandarin oranges, cornbread, brownies and lemonade.  We purchase the food and Al Strauch schedules the volunteers to cook and serve.  Cooking is from 5:00-7:00 and the meal service starts at 7:00 and is typically finished a little after 7:30. The meal recipients are always grateful for a hot, nutritious meal and we are thanked by so many of them.

If you are interested in helping with this mission, you could volunteer to assist in serving or cooking, donate funds to this mission (this option is available through on-line giving or designating such on your check), or by donating items that are needed by Safe Harbor for services provided at the shelter.

Some items needed for the facility and/or the participants are:

  • printer paper
  • pens
  • paper towels
  • single ply toilet paper
  • 55 gallon trash bags
  • travel size soaps and deodorants
  • new towels and washcloths
  • pot holders
  • Pam cooking spray

Items may be brought to church any time (In the Narthex) and we will deliver them to Safe Harbor.  If you have questions, please contact Al Strauch.
