SALT will be feeding Stitch’s. What does that mean and what can you do?
Stitch’s is teen hang out down town that SALT visits every Friday. It is run by Christians and encourages Christian values but still provides a modern, fun and safe place for teens to be in the evenings. The Stitch’s ministry has seen several teens and young adults come to Christ over the past few years.
This Thursday SALT will be bringing some of the teens from Stitch’s to Corban’s ARAMARK for dinner around 6 pm.
“A lot of these people need food- they’re hungry,” Heidi Herzog explained. What better way to minister to them than by giving them a free all-you-can-eat meal?
What is your part?
Don’t be shocked if you see a bunch of new people at ARAMARK. “React in a loving way and try to befriend them,” Herzog encouraged. “They might look intimidating but they are still loved by God. Street kids often put up a front for fear of being rejected by those around them,” Hannah Dawley said.
This is your chance to meet people outside of Corban and show God’s love for them.
The teens from Stitch’s like “seeing the college and how different it is from the life they’re used to,” Herzog said. They also enjoy the endless supply of cheeseburgers, soda and hopefully endless chocolate milk machine (sound familiar?).
“It was once said that ‘people are a lot less far gone than we think,’ there is still hope for everyone” Dawley said.
Students can also donate meals or help drive the teenagers from Stitch’s to Corban and back. In order to find out more information, donate meals, or offer to drive call or text Heidi Herzog at (707) 477-3306.
