Family Promise Volunteers Needed
Being without a safe, warm place to sleep, eat, and care for children; being without the security of familiar people and belongings and surroundings – this is homelessness. Families with young children account for up to 40 percent of America’s homeless, and they make up its fastest growing segment. Now we have a chance to help – to be part of providing a warm place to sleep, eat, and care for children, to welcome local families into our church home with radical hospitality. Through Family Promise of Forsyth County, St. Columba’s will host local homeless families several times each year, with our first host week scheduled October 30-November 6.
We need LOTS of volunteers for each host week, covering tasks from setting up bedrooms to providing meals to staying overnight at the church. To volunteer in any capacity (whether for the October host week or in the future), please SIGN UP HERE. Registration for specific volunteer jobs will be distributed to those who SIGN UP HERE.
Family Promise will conduct a 90-minute volunteer training session on Tuesday, September 20 at 7pm at St. Columba’s. Please mark your calendar and plan to attend. (If you cannot attend the September training, but still want volunteer, SIGN UP and we’ll make arrangements for your training).
This is a unique opportunity to live out our mission to be a holy place where love is found, where all are named, and where hearts are freed to change the world. Please join us.
