Feel Good About Satisfying your Sweet Tooth: Project Stepping Stone Picnic & Dessert Auction
Want to eat homemade desserts and not feel guilty about the calorie count? On Sunday, September 11th, Project Stepping Stone will be hosting an auction of about 60 desserts made by members of our partner churches, Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, First Presbyterian Church, and Lutheran Church of the Cross. All the funds raised will go directly to Project Stepping Stone, a local non-profit that provides housing to families in need. Spending money on a good deed has to mean that all those calories should be guilt-free, right? Right. And if you’re watching your weight and want something truly calorie-free, additional items from the community, like service certificates and gift baskets, will be auctioned off as well.
The auction, led by Bill Jenkins, will start around noon. At 11:30 a FREE lunch of fried chicken and fixings will be provided.
Before the lunch and auction there’s a joint worship service between Holy Trinity Lutheran Church and Lutheran Church of the Cross beginning at 10:30am.
Powerful worship, good food, and some laughter, all dedicated to a good cause. Be sure to join us!

More info on Project Stepping Stone:
There are remarkably few options for families seeking shelter in Muncie, especially for those that do not meet the federal definition of homelessness. Project Stepping Stone (PSS) works to counter this by managing three homes that provide transitional housing for low-income families, the majority of which are headed by single mothers, needing three to four months to recover, save, and move forward after domestic instability, personal loss, or economic hardship. By providing a safe space for these families to lay their head, we hope to stop them from continuing on to worse situations.
