1st Presbyterian Brandon
Our next Host Week for feeding and providing safe overnight housing for Family Promise guest families begins Sunday, September 11 and ends early Sunday morning, September 18. We need volunteers for various tasks. Please review the opportunities below and sign up to participate in this wonderful ministry our church supports.
Dinner prep volunteers will prepare and deliver a meal for our guest families one night only, to be served in our church fellowship hall, Mauldin Hall. You will be providing a main meal and dessert. Beverages will be provided by the church. Meal time is 6:00 pm. You will have access to the church kitchen to heat the meal and clean up, and plates, napkins, utensils, cups, etc. are provided by the church. The number of guests always varies and we will contact you by email several days before your designated day to advise (1) the exact # of guests who will be eating, (2) their ages and (3) any dietary restrictions our guests might have. You are welcome and encouraged to stay and join our guests for dinner if you so desire.
Overnight Hosts: We need one male and one female to host our guests overnight for one night only. You will arrive at Mauldin Hall no later than 8:00 pm (recommended 7:30 to get a nice transition between the dinner volunteers and the overnight volunteers), sleep overnight in a private room on the 2nd floor of the Discipleship Hall, help to set out coffee and a quick grab and go breakfast the next morning, and your mission is then completed to return home by around 7:00 am in the morning. A roll-away bed is provided; we ask that you bring your own pillow, sheet, and blanket.
Other Opportunities: There are also opportunities listed below to help with room set-up on Sunday, September 11, room tear-down on Sunday, September 18, prepare/serve breakfast on Saturday, September 17 or Sunday, September 18, or laundry at the end of the week. Or, simply help us cover the cost of the brown bag lunch foods we provide every day by offering a $10 donation. More information is provided in the "comments" section for these opportunities.
Your support of this wonderful mission ministry project is greatly appreciated and will be a blessing to all those touched by your participation.
