The needs we are able to serve and the possibility of transformation are greater than ever. We invite you to help us celebrate with our friends, both newly sheltered and still unhoused…to be seen and loved as we celebrate the season together.
Last year Room in the Inn 2021 pulled together 25 different churches, more than 250 community partner sponsors, 280 individual volunteers, and served just over 300 individuals. This year we hope to serve all those in our spheres of relationship on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day at each of our 3 sites to celebrate the incarnation of Jesus together by offering much needed items and a warm meal available to go each day.
Can you help?
As our unsheltered friends continue to face the challenges of life on the street, this year has been a pivotal time of transition and readiness for many who seek hope, healing, and housing. Please join us to pray for blessings upon each one that we will reach out to in the coming months. We will post specific stories & calls to prayer each day on our Church@thePark social media channels. Please share any thoughts or words of blessing there.
