For the first time our church will be a site for the Interfaith Night Shelter Program. This program houses homeless families during the school year at 30 different churches for one or sometimes two weeks. This program is administered by First Place Family Center for St. Vincent de Paul. They choose and screen participants and provide us with lots of help. We will host 20 to 40 people during the week of January 8-15, 2018. Mark your calendar.
If, as some say it takes a village to raise a child, it takes a congregation to host Night Shelter. We are calling on each of you to take part in this very worthy endeavor. We need cooks, van drivers, early morning breakfast servers, dinner servers, friendly hospitality folks and lots of food items.
