Joseph’s Coat is currently looking for a new home to house their ministry. They have contacted Messiah in hopes to return their ministry to the property at 1160 Waggoner Road, our former parsonage. They wish to raise funds on their own to build a new facility on that property. Our Council would like to hear from our congregation about this opportunity. Joseph’s Coat began as a clothing ministry in 1998 in the garage at 1160 on our campus to meet the needs of homeless families. They later expanded to include furniture and household goods to provide stabilizing resources to families transitioning from homelessness to permanent housing. It would be exciting to welcome them home. We want to hear your thoughts, questions, concerns and ideas about this proposal of welcoming back Joseph’s Coat.
