Time is drawing closer for our week for hosting homeless families! We will be hosts during the week of April 22. Many hands and hearts are needed to ensure that we make our families feel welcomed and loved during that week. Areas of service include: folks willing to pray before and during the week, workers to set up and break down bedrooms in our Sunday School classrooms, cooks to prepare supper and host for a few hours each evening, couples to spend each night, other hosts for all day Saturday (We’ll set up shifts for that day; sometimes the families have other plans.). LaToya Hardman, director of Family Promise, will be with us on Wednesday evening, April 4, to refresh our hosting skills. Watch for sign-up sheets in the fellowship hall to be a part of this excellent local ministry. God is at work all around us; this is a work we can do!
We are thankful that we have received a Thrivent Action Team grant to defray some expenses we may incur in preparation for the week.
