Room In The Inn
Hosted by First Presbyterian Church, 701 N Main Ave, Newton NC (828) 464-0648
A snowy scene is great when you are warm and in your home. What about if you are not? What do you do, where do you go???
For many of the homeless in our community, they go to First Presbyterian Church's Room In The Inn
Unfortunately, there are members of our community who lack safe, secure, and most importantly, warm shelter on the cold winter nights that are undoubtedly on the way.
For the past several years, First Presbyterian Church has provided such a haven on the coldest nights of the winter. On nights when the temperature is predicted to fall to 25 degrees or below, the church has been opening the fellowship hall from 6 PM until 8:15 AM, offering a warm meal and a warm place to sleep.
This ministry, known as Room In The Inn, is coordinated by the First Presbyterian Missions Committee, and are requesting additional assistance.
What can you do to help???
Volunteers are Needed to staff the shelter!!!
Hens (5:45pm-10:00 pm) -- 2 to 3 persons are needed to help open the shelter, welcome guests, and serve dinner.
