Saturdays @ Simpson

Simpson Center for Servant Ministries is pleased to announce the kick-off of Saturdays @ Simpson, a new outreach of Simpson UMC in the Whittier neighborhood of south Minneapolis.  Saturdays @ Simpson will be a significant outreach to the children and youth (and eventually adults) of the Whittier neighborhood. The program will initially include youth basketball, tutoring, a children’s book club, and art classes. We will begin with one Saturday per month, and expand to 2 Saturdays after the first of the year.

We invite persons who are looking for an opportunity to share their gifts, to join us in building relationships and making a real difference for God’s people in our urban community. Offering time, talents, friendship and faith a couple of hours once or twice a month will not only impact program participants, but volunteers as well.

Please join us, and invite others, for the Saturdays @ Simpson Open House, Saturday, October 15, 11:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m., at Simpson Church, 2740 First Avenue South, Minneapolis (Corner of 1st Ave. and 28th Street). Come enjoy refreshments and learn more about the program.  Child care will be provided for those attending the open house.   For more information on how you can get involved, contact Kevin Schill at 651-925-6874, or simpsoncsm@gmail.com.  You can also contact Good Samaritan’s joannknutson@hotmail.com.
