8th St Motel Outreach

8th Street Motel Outreach

Hey Hey KPC friends and family! 

Join us on the evening of Thursday, July 19th as we cook up some summertime fun and serve our neighbors at the 8th Street Motel in East Rogers.  We are looking for people to bring burgers, hot dogs, buns, and all the fixings as we serve together, eat together, and share the love of Christ to our wonderful community! 

Local authorities have identified this hotel (and its residents) as one of great need and most residents living there have no place to call their own.  Our job is simple - to love and serve them! 

Along with a hot meal served, hotel residents are provided opportunities to meet with social advocates who are knowledgeable about community resources including employment opportunities, transportation, dental/medical services and getting plugged in with government/community assistance programs. The social advocates play a crucial role in this ministry by being present during the evening meals and forging relationships with the tenants. A consistent and caring presence demonstrates to the residents that they are not alone in this process and that there are people that care and believe in their well being. (If you are interested in becoming a social advocate, please let me know). 

There are multiple ways to be a part of this outreach. If you don't have time to spend a couple of hours at the hotel, you can simply drop off any of the items listed and drop it off in the parking lot behind the hotel at 4:30 p.m. You can also join us from 4:30 to 6:30 and help serve the residents, get to know some new neighbors, and build community together. (Just FYI - you can sign up for multiple slots) 

Scripture tells us that people will know we are Christ's disciples by our love for one another.  And so, we desire to be a church that is putting our faith into action and loving our community out loud and that through that love, the community is able to experience the transformative love, power, and compassion of Jesus Christ.  

Thanks for your heart to serve and be Christ's hands and feet to our community.  See you soon! 

- Jarod 

PS - Young children (12 and under) are discouraged from attending due to the criminal backgrounds of some of the residents.  If you do decide to bring your children, just make sure you keep an eye on them.  There have been no issues to date but the organizing agency has asked us to make this request.
