ROOM IN THE INN
2018-19 Vine Street Driving Duties
THANK YOU for your willingness to manifest the hospitality of Westminster Presbyterian Church
by serving as an van driver in support of Vine Street Christian Church’s Room In The Inn ministry!
We will most likely be using the 2002 church bus. If you will (or might) be driving, we will need a copy of your driver’s license and insurance card before you can drive. Please email [email protected]. You cannot drive until we have your info in the church office. You must be a WPC member to drive. If you have not driven the bus, please call to set a time with Carl Sutton for training. You can do this when you come to get the keys and should only take 15-20 minutes, but please remember to call ahead (615-292-5526) to check with Carl on his availability. Pick up the keys and driving/parking information from the church office between 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. The keys you receive will work with WPC’s main entrance door.
Picking up Guests from RITI & taking to Vine Street Christian Church:
One or two volunteers should pick up the van at WPC in the lower parking lot on Mayfair and drive to the Room in the Inn facility to pick up the guests promptly at 6:20 p.m. The van holds 15, so if 2 hosts go we can only accommodate 13 guests.
It would be helpful if you could pick up in the evening and drop off the next morning, but not required.
Directions to RITI: Please refer to the Room in the Inn directions found that you picked up in the office. Pick up the van at WPC in the lower parking lot on Mayfair. Drive guests to Vine Street Christian Church at 4101 Harding Pike, Nashville, TN 37205. The guests will be staying at Vine Street’s Fellowship Hall. The entrance is on the side of the building closest to Montgomery Bell Academy, where the guests will enter through the green double doors with the green awning.
Please ensure a smooth handoff with the Vine Street Volunteers
Return the van to WPC in the lower parking lot on Mayfair.
Picking up Guests from Vine Street & Returning to RITI:
Wake up early! At 6:00 AM pick the van up at WPC parking lot. Drive van to Vine Street Christian Church and park outside the green double doors and the green awning. Most guests like to leave by 6:10 a.m. so they can get back to Room in the Inn.
Return keys to the church office; please make sure they are given to a person or call the church office to make other arrangements, as another church member will be providing transportation the next night.
