Family Promise is a community mission that assists homeless children and their families. First Baptist, in cooperation with twelve other local churches, participates in this very worthy mission by housing and feeding the families who qualify for the program four weeks during each year. We host children and their parents for one week four times per year right here at First Baptist. It is a wonderful experience to see how our church members come together to fulfill the following roles:
• Meal Hosts prepare and serve dinner- working in teams of three each night
• Evening Hosts provide tutoring or recreation for children from 6:30pm-8:30pm
• Overnight Hosts Spend the night in a separate room, room from 8:30pm-7:00am
• Weekend Day Hosts take shifts on Saturday and Sunday hosting the families at the day center or the church from 9:00am-1:30pm; 1:30pm–5:00pm on Saturday; and 8:00am–12:30pm and 12:30pm- 5:00pm on Sunday.
Volunteers of all ages are needed and these are great opportunities for families to volunteer together.
