EUMC RITI Summer Women's Shelter - July

Saturday, July 28th, 2018 from 4:30pm to 9:00pm


Room in the Inn @ Emmanuel United Methodist Church Gym 
During the summer months of May through September, once a month we turn the Emmanuel UMC Gym into an Inn for 12 female guests.  We serve dinner, provide personal hygiene products and a clothes closet, and offer Holy Hospitality.  Various positions and shifts are available.  Please join us by volunteering your time or donating supplies or money for supplies to the ministry.
We can use volunteers of many talents, including food preparation and serving, driving the van, preparing the gym before the guests arrive and cleaning up after they depart, spending the night,  laundry, or just listening and talking to our guests while they are with us!
You may sign up for more than one "shift" (task) during the event, if desired.
