Our Church is more than just a building...
... it is a place where we can communicate with God.
We are a vibrant community of faith where everyone can participate.
Is Grosse Pointe Congregational the kind of church you can get involved in? We would love to have you visit and find out!
We are from all walks of life and from many parts of the journey. Our common faith brings us together to share and care for each other.
Outreach for July: COTS
Cots are portable uncomfortable beds that we use to provide a temporary place to sleep. In Metro-Detroit C.O.T.S is also a “Safety Net” for families that for one reason or another find themselves in need of a place to sleep or call home. Nearly 4,000 children under the age of 18 are homeless in Detroit.
C.O.T.S. is “Coalition on Temporary Shelter” and has been operating in Detroit since 1982. Over the years they have rehabilitated several buildings in Detroit that they operate as temporary and transitional housing. Annually C.O.T.S. serves more than 2,000 homeless people in its emergency shelter and 450 families in transitional housing. The blessings that they provide include:
Emergency Shelter- Individuals entering COTS' Emergency Shelter or housing programs meets with a Case Planner who provides individualized case management and support. They play an instrumental role in helping individuals and families address their current situations, set financial goals, obtain benefits, secure housing and take steps toward housing security.
Transitional Housing -Transitional Housing Program is an intensive, goal-oriented program that assists individuals and families for up to 24 months while they work toward economic stability.
Child Care Services - Infant and Child Development Centers are designed to keep infants and toddlers happy and safe.
Permanent Supportive Housing - COTS provides subsidized housing and direct access to support services that address specific needs and tackle the underlying issues that cause repeat episodes of homelessness.
On Sunday July 27th we will be hosting Robyn Smith from C.O.T.S. who will be presenting to the congregation the services they provide and how we as Disciples of Christ can support the good work they do.
You can learn more on-line at www.cotsdetroit.org. Your donation in the blue or yellow outreach envelope, marked COTS will help to continue this ministry.
