Christmas can be a lonely time for some, particularly in Portland’s hotel community. As a result, the Hotel Ministry annually seeks to celebrate the holiday with residents through music, food and gifts generously provided by church members.
An example this year, recounted by the Stewart Hotel team:
There was laughter, Christmas songs, and plates with mounds of steamy mashed potatoes and Swedish meatballs. Dave Coultier read Luke 2 that tells of Jesus’ birth as the residents anxiously awaited a hot meal, followed by the wonder of opening their Christmas gift bags. River West donated hundreds of bags to distribute with HOTEL Ministry.
We want to thank you for loving these residents, considering their hearts in this Christmas season, and gifting them with love and laughter!
