Lois Knowlton is a member at the La Mesa First United Methoidst Church, Lois is active with Interfaith Shelter Network, who hosts individuals and families who are home insecure for up to two weeks at a rotation across the county.

Hear about the work La Mesa FUMC does in helping homeless get back on their feet: in offering clothes for job interviews, haircuts and meals.  The church has long helped homeless people who showed up on their doorstep.  Hear about La Mesa FUMC’s mission to create La Mesa’s first temporary shelter for homeless people in the church’s basement.

Ruth Circle December Meeting

Ruth Circle Activity
Pictured are some of the members of UMW Ruth Circle enjoying a delicious brunch prepared by Linda Grider for their December meeting. An added highlight was  a touching and uplifting video for the devotional presented by Rollin that featured a tender story in song about Mary, Joseph and Baby Jesus.
