Stone Soup Café is needing volunteers again. Their Board met with the Tanana Valley Council of Churches on January 13th, and other interested church people, to revive the “church community” spirit in the Stone Soup Café. If anyone is interested in volunteering, please call Stone Soup Café Manager, Mary, 456-8317. Or, if a group of 68 people from St. Matthew’s wants to get organized, we could have an Episcopalian Day weekly or so. You may contact our Church office (456-5235). The volunteers at the Stone Soup Café, at this time, mostly come from North Star Halfway House, which has sustained the Café. The First United Methodist Church will continue to host the Café ONLY IF there is community-wide church involvement again. Otherwise, FUMC will ask Stone Soup Café’ to move out of their building by March 31, 2009.
