Family Promise Hosting August 22-29 2021

Back to campus!  RUMC will host up to four families on our campus from Sunday, August 22-29, 2021.

Guests arrive Sunday afternoon, are served dinner each evening, sleep as a family in the Dod first floor rooms converted to bedrooms for the week, leave for school or the Day Center around 7 a.m. each weekday morning, and return to RUMC around 6 or 7 p.m. Guests relax on Saturday, pack up before Sunday School, be with us in worship, and then head to the next congregation in the afternoon.

Join us as we share in hospitality, fellowship and hope!

For guests, Family Promise provides a safe, homelike shelter where families can stay together.

Key volunteer roles: providing dinner and dining with guests, spending the night in a separate room, room setup and take down. We need you if you can do any of the following for one day during the visit week:

What: Provide dinner, talk and listen, set up or take down, sleep, wash linens, welcome homeless children and their parents as guests - an easy opportunity to help homeless families directly and make a difference.

Who: Volunteers are needed. Due to continued Covid-19 Family Promise guidelines, we are limiting dinner hosts to 1-2 people.  There will be a staggered food delivery.  Volunteers interacting directly with guests must attend training in advance.
