A Gift of Hospitality…

A Gift of Hospitality…A Gift of Time…A Gift from the Heart

The Mission Committees of First Presbyterian Church challenge you to give of yourself in service to Nashville’s homeless. The church offers you both on- and off-campus service opportunities in partnership with Room In The Inn and Safe Haven Family Shelter.

Room in the InnRoom In The Inn — Our Wednesday night winter shelter ministry to Nashville’s homeless is in need of volunteers on every Wednesday night during the months November through March. Members are needed to serve as overnight hosts and van drivers, bring sandwiches for lunch, donate breakfast food and wash bed linens. Dinner food is needed some Wednesday nights when the FPC kitchen is closed. Check out the sign-up board in Courtenay Hall and sign up to fill an open week. Contact our oncampus Coordinator, Hal Sauer (615-243-0167), with questions.

Safe-Haven-Family-ShelterSafe Haven Family Shelter — Our Local Missions Committee has committed to provide Food/Meal and Overnight Host Volunteers on six Monday nights in 2014. Food/Meal volunteers provide dinner for 25-30 residents and may prepare the meal in their own home or on-site at the shelter’s newly expanded kitchen. Volunteers are encouraged to eat with the residents and then head home after cleaning up. Overnight Host volunteers simply spend the night at the shelter and leave by 6:00 A.M. the following morning; all Overnight Host volunteers will need to attend an orientation session unless they have served recently at the newly remodeled facility. We invite you come alongside these families for just one night. Individuals or groups of people are all welcome to serve in 2014 by contacting Mary Earthman (615-665-8845) to select an open date: February 3, April 7, June 2, August 4, October 6 or December 1.
