Reach Volunteer Opportunity November 10-17: Family Promise
Family Promise is a program that uses existing resources such as church space to help combat homelessness and poverty.  This program uses a holistic approach to combat the crisis of family homelessness that includes three key areas of focus: prevention, shelter and stabilization.  Volunteers are the core of this program.  They share food, spend the night, play with children and lend their passion and expertise to help families get back on their feet.  Our sister church, Christ Episcopal Church in Kennesaw has asked for volunteers during their hosting rotation November 10-17.  They need volunteers to greet and to cook/serve dinner.  If you feel led to volunteer for this ministry, please contact Lainey Gaines at / 678-431-0894 or Deb Gerace at / 678-777-9027.  Visit for additional information on the program.
