Room in the Inn
While they were there, the time came for her to deliver her child. And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in bands of cloth, and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn. (Luke 2:6-7)
From December through March, we offer our homeless neighbors hospitality by inviting them into our church home, preparing the evening meal, and providing a warm place to sleep.
Volunteers support this night by joining guests for dinner, driving the van to the Urban Ministry Center, staying overnight on campus, running laundry to or from Hope Haven, which cleans the linens, or packing a "bed burrito" (pillowcase stuffed with clean sheets) that will be used on Tuesday nights.
To get involved, contact Julia Watkins, our pastoral resident who coordinates this ministry.
In addition to regular Room in the Inn activities, we will host a Christmas Day potluck dinner for our guests. Learn more here.
