New year invites change

Leave a comment

On New Year’s Eve, people come together to count down the final moments before the clock strikes midnight. For some it’s less about the change of date rather, it’s the chance for something different. With a new year, we tend to invite change. Whether it’s the start of something new or the change of something old, the countdown draws us in. It makes us reflect back as we plan for what is yet to come.

Ten, nine, eight…

Just as you have your goals, so too do many organizations. We ask, “What will this next year bring?”

…seven, six, five, four…

The Good Samaritan Health Clinics are going to completely transfer their paper records over to electronic records. The Caring Partners Adult Day Programs will remodel to expand their client spaces. The Castleview Apartment office will transition toward the inclusion of a small store area to provide essentials.

Social services already expanded this year with the addition of a warming center to keep community members safe during the recent cold spell that kept temperatures below zero for days. Community engagement will reach out to more volunteers through new opportunities. The Salvation Army North Stores will engage the community to raise more awareness that your used goods fuel our programs.

…three, two, one…

With the New Year, there is growth, there is change, and there is an excitement that propels us forward. Will you come alongside us as we reach toward improvements to our programs? Happy New Year!

We are Haley and James Earley, a family of two established on October 11, 2014 in our hometown of Rochester, MN and now living in St. Paul, MN. We are dog-lovers, coffee addicts, tree-huggers, balance-seekers, community-livers, and new foster parents. We live in a house of three adults, three dogs, and our sweet foster kiddos. We desire to slow down in this fast-paced world in order to pursue intentional community as we seek after the heart of God. We're just one couple trying to figure out this whole living life thing.
