Family Promise Host Week – Volunteers Needed! May 21-27

If you’re thinking we just had a Family Promise Host Week a few weeks ago, you’re not wrong! We just can’t get enough!

The FP organization is in dire need of more Host churches post Covid so we’ve stepped into the gap to host temporarily homeless families FOUR weeks this year.

This Host Week coming up May 21-27 is our second and is nearly filled up, but we still have a handful of slots open for:

  • Meal Providers (do you make a mean cornbread?! We need it Monday night!)
  • Meal (Dinner) Hosts on Sun, Mon, Thu and Saturday
  • Evening (Play) hosts on Tues and Thu
  • KITCHEN HELPERS Sun, Mon, Thu and Fri
  • OVERNIGHT HOSTS Tuesday and Friday ( Easiest job ever!!)

So check out the signup below to see what needs YOU can fill – or contact Lauren Umbaugh and we’ll find it together.

For more information reach out to Lauren Umbaugh or contact the office at

Not in town or just feel extra generous? We need to fill our pantry for the week for our families. We welcome your financial donations to stock up for the week. Please be sure to select Family Promise in the drop down menu.
