FAMILY PROMISE IS COMING!

Our first week of 2022 for hosting families in the Family Promise Ministry will be Sunday, January 23rd through Saturday, January 29th. Please mark this week in your calendar and consider ways you can join us in serving.

Sign up online here at SignUp Genius
There are multiple opportunities: 

  1. Provide dinner—stay if you are able to have dinner with the families, or we’ll make arrangements to meet you at the church for delivery of the meal, 5:45pm-6:30pm.
  2. Be an evening host—just come up & visit during the meal & for a little while after, 6pm-8pm. Hospitality is a gift to these families—be a listening ear & offer encouragement.
  3. Be an overnight host—sleep at the church with one other partner to be a resource if needed, 8pm-6am. (The families leave by 6am)
  4. Provide supplies—we provide grab & go breakfast items & snacks for the families to have each day.  

This is a national program and we serve with 12 other area churches within Family Promise of Lake Houston. Here is a link to the website for more information: https://fplh.org/about/
