HOSTING THE HOMELESS

HOSTING THE HOMELESS

 For several years we have counted it a privilege to partner with Flagstaff Shelter Services to host the overflow homeless men during the coldest months of the year.  Each year homeless people tragically die of exposure on bitterly cold nights.  With the compassion of Christ we are trying to make a difference.

So far, we have volunteered to host up to twenty homeless men during the weeks of November 5-11, December 3-9, and January 14-20.  If more times are needed, we would certainly prayerfully consider serving. 

We will try to provide evening snacks, morning breakfasts, and creative fellowship and activity opportunities for the men.  One art teacher came and helped the men to create holiday greeting cards.  The men loved it!  Come and watch movies with the guys.  One dad brought his pre-teen son and proceeded to pray with the men.  They were deeply touched.  Let’s get creative.  How can we bless and provide warm Christian hospitality to these men?

Sign up sheets will be going up on the Ministry Board in the coming days.  Let’s serve the Lord with joy by touching the lives of these homeless men with the love of Christ our Lord.
