Parkway, please sign up below for opportunities to serve Nov 3-10.
Family Promise is a ministry in Fort Bend County that exists to help families who are between homes. The reasons vary but the need for financial counseling, contacts for acquiring a new home, activities for students and kids, and having comfortable and safe housing are the same. Ten places of worship form a rotation, each having guests or paying for a hotel 4 times a year. Other places of worship provide hospitality at the center (Cartwright Rd in MO City), from where Family Guests have access to storage, a refrigerator, laundry and services. In Ft Bend Co the need is so great that a second center has been acquired in the Rich/Rose western side of our county and plans with new host churches are being made.
At Parkway we will provide housing and meals for up to 4 families (possible 20 people) for a week beginning on Sunday night and ending early the following Sunday. There are many ways to serve: setting up and tearing down, bringing meals, hosting, staying overnight, and laundry have been established but let us know if you have additional ideas for hospitality (activities with children, special treats for parents, etc.) Historically, the families love to come to Parkway because of our genuine friendship, good food, and fun outdoor spaces!
Our opportunities ask for "1" person but that's only because there wasn't a spot for "unlimited"! You do not have to cook for 20 alone! Small groups or family friends can work together; sign up for Evening Host and stay for dinner and fellowship!
