Christ Church Hosts Families from Family Promise October 22-29   
Christ Church is preparing to host a new group of transitionally homeless families here in Church House for the week of October 22-29.
This has become one of our most important parish outreach ministries -- and it's a unique opportunity for families to join with other parishioners right here at Christ Church to make a tangible difference in the lives of families in crisis.
While they are with us, we provide these families safe shelter, healthy meals, compassion and fellowship. And we will need lots of help!
Volunteering to help with Family Promise is a unique opportunity to put our faith into action. We need volunteers of all ages to help with:
  • Setup and Cleanup
  • Evening Meals
  • Evening Activities
  • Overnight Hosting
  • Fellowship and Hospitality
Watch for More Information to Come
In the coming weeks we will provide more details about the volunteer opportunities and post a Sign-up Genius.   But mark October 22-29 on your calendar now!
