Family Promise Hosting Week

November 19-26 & December 3-10

We believe strongly that our role in God's story involves caring for those around us. Therefore, we partner with Family Promise to help Ahwatukee and East Valley families who have had a few bad breaks get back on their feet by hosting them overnight. These folks are in transition to new jobs and housing while they rebuild their lives. We’ve been blessed to see the families who have stayed with us move into long-term, gainful employment, and permanent housing. 

We need teams of volunteers to help us prepare and serve meals, have dinner with our guest families each evening from 6:00-7:30 pm, play with their children and set up a comfortable and safe sleeping environment. Younger volunteers are also a key part of this outreach opportunity -- when they help out by having dinner and playing with the children of our guests, moms and dads begin to relax when they see their kids having fun. 

We are looking for volunteers to fulfill these roles: 
Dinner Team: provide dinner (Cook or purchase) for families and volunteers. Meals to be ready to serve at 5 pm 

Overnight Hosts: two adults to serve each night from 7:00 pm-6:00 am. Also, assist with breakfast set up Room Setup Team: set-up rooms Sunday before families arrive Daily 

Clean-up Team: (Before 4 pm daily) spruce up the rooms while guests are away each day. Empty trash, vacuum, disinfect, etc. 

Reset Classroom Teams: 5:30 am - 8 am set-up classrooms for Sunday morning celebrations 

Breakfast Host: 5 am - 6 am set-up a continental breakfast and assist guests with lunch preparation 

Transition Host: 5 pm - 7:30 pm Transition dinner team from overnight host
