Project Stepping Stone Canceling 2020 Dessert Auction

After much discussion and debate, Project Stepping Stone has decided to cancel this year’s Dessert Auction.  This decision saddens all of us greatly, and we know that it is disappointing.  But, PSS values our communities, and with no set date for the end of physical distancing, canceling was the best option to keep everyone safe.  Ways of moving the auction to an online space were discussed, but nothing seemed right to replace the lively atmosphere of the auction, and again, canceling entirely became the only option.

The work of Project Stepping Stone, however, has not stopped.  There are currently two families making themselves at home in PSS’ houses, and we have offered them automatic extensions in order to ease their stress during this time.  Our third house is undergoing some much needed repairs, and once complete will be available to a family needing a rent-free, utility-free space for a while.  These families are at the core of what we do, and we thank you for your support as we support them.

Looking to the future, we hope that 2021 finds us all with the ability to gather safely again – and the opportunity to eat all those yummy desserts.  In the meantime, know we appreciate you, we’re praying for the world & our community, and we hope that you stay healthy.


Project Stepping Stone began in September 1989 when the congregations of Holy Trinity Lutheran Church and Lutheran Church of the Cross recognized a need within the community for free temporary housing for families who find themselves in a sudden financial crisis. They started with one house and, within three years, expanded their ministry with the addition of two more houses. In 2011 First Presbyterian Church joined this mission outreach.
