TriPoint Church of God Travels to Donate Coats to the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians

TriPoint Church of God made their way to donating coats to the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians.

13 Members of the church including pastor Mike Potter and his wife, Emily started their journey to Sault Ste. Marie Friday after collecting over 400 coats, hats, gloves and boots to send to the tribe.

This is the third year the church has been taking coats to the U.P.

Potter said he finds joy in helping others.

“It’s a perfect example of reaching out in the love of Christ. These children and these adults some of them have no means to get a warm coat or hats, during the winter time sometimes it’s negative 40 degree weather and they need that. So we’re looking out for their basic human needs through the love of Christ, and I feel like that is what is calling us to do,” Potter said.

The tribe received their coats and other winter items Saturday.

Donations to get the winter items were made last month at the Deer Widows Craft Show. If you missed this donation trip, potter says his doors are always open at TriPoint Church of God for more drop offs.
