RCC Room In The Inn volunteers

Room in the Inn @ RCC Winter 2019-2020

Room in the Inn provides a place for our neighbors who are currently experiencing homelessness to get inside during the dangerously cold months of December, January and February. On Friday nights 10 of our neighbors spend the night at Ridglea Christian Church. We gather around the table with our neighbors on these nights for a great meal, games, conversation, and fun! Our neighbors also get a chance to take a shower and wash their clothes! Room in the Inn is a joint ministry with DRC Solutions of Fort Worth and congregations across the city.

It takes all of us to provide this hospitality. Each week volunteers spend the night, cook dinner and breakfast, serve as hosts, set up, clean up, drive, and do laundry! Sign up below to help. You will receive an email the week before you volunteer with all of the details. If you have any questions contact the Ridglea Christian Church office. You can contact the office at [email protected] or 817-738-0612. Thank you for following in Jesus' footsteps by welcoming in and providing a feast for those who are so often excluded from the table!
