As we celebrate our years of service, we proudly honor the vision of those who founded this ministry and the efforts of those who sustained it. And while the growth in our services makes it possible to provide meaningful assistance, it has become increasingly challenging to make those services easily accessible. Thus, with a view to improve both our effectiveness and reach, Stewpot is embarking on its first-ever capital campaign. After reaching our $4,000,000 goal, we will be able to
transform the existing space into an area that better
serves our ministry.
Under the proposed plan, the kitchen and lunch services
will be moved to the newly renovated sanctuary, just
west of the current building. The chapel and food
pantry will also be moved next to the sanctuary,
allowing handicap access to all three services for the
first time. In addition, an inviting courtyard will be
created between the two buildings.
The current utilized space will be transformed to
accommodate the children's programs. After-School and
summer programs will be moved to the second floor, and
eventually a day care will be set up in the current
clothing closet space.
The once magnificent sanctuary has been idle for many
years. What better use for this sacred space than to
reclaim it as a haven for those in need of food,
shelter, clothing, love, and encouragement.
