Family Promise
Helping end homelessness,
one family at a time! 
Family Promise Host Week
November 18-25

Many people are needed to help as we welcome homeless families into our church for a week, providing a safe place for children and their families to sleep.
Volunteers are needed to setup after Sunday school on November 18, breakdown the morning of November 25, stay overnight, fix dinner, and fellowship with the children and adults.
Stop by the sign-up board located on Main Street to see how YOU can help and to volunteer. You won't want to miss out on this life-changing mission!
