IN OUR COMMUNITY

For even the Son of Man came not to be served, but to serve.

Mark 10:45

Followers of Jesus are called to become servants. We want to actively demonstrate self-sacrificial love
by serving the people around us.

Family Promise at our church

August 6th - 27th

Family Promise is an organization that helps homeless families find permanent housing while churches provide meals and lodging in their church building. This year, our church is hosting guests from Family Promise for three weeks from August 6th to the 27th.

There are many opportunities to serve: Set up and break down - setting up bedrooms and living areas before they arrive and taking it down at the end of the two weeks. Preparing and serving dinner on weekdays - meeting our guests at the church at 5:00pm and staying until overnight hosts arrive at 7:00pm. Day hosts are needed to spend time with our guests throughout the day on Saturdays and after church on Sundays.   Overnight hosts - overnight hosts sleep over at the church with our guests from 7:00pm to 7:00am. Overnight hosts are provided with a separate bedroom and air mattress. (There is always a possibility that we will be hosting a family where the father is present.  In that case, we need married couples to volunteer as overnight hosts. We will not know if this is the case until shortly before our host dates. If you are willing to remain “on call” for this possibility, please email Noelle Klimek.)

Thank you for prayerfully considering this as an opportunity to be the hands and feet of Christ. Please partner with us in praying for the families who will be guests in our church.
