Be a part of a week you won't forget with our North Shore families in need. We are one of many local churches that open our doors 4x a year to homeless families. We provide a safe and warm room to sleep in, warm meals prepared with love, conversation and peace of mind for our North Shore neighbors in transition looking for housing and jobs, while staying together as a family.  Here are dates for 2019;

 

February 3-10 

June 2-9

September 29- October 6

December 15-22

 

We need the following volunteers for the following times and tasks;

  • 5-7 p.m. prepare and serve a well balnced, nutritional meal and eat with the families. (2+ helpers)

  • 7-9 p.m. clean up from dinner, the kitchen, and the large vestry, help them put toys away and the last Saturday set up for Sunday School and fellowship after worship by vacuuming and setting up tables & chairs (2+ helpers)

  • 9 p.m. - 6 a.m. sleep over and help with breakfast if necessary (1 man & 1 woman)

  • the first Sunday, set up rooms after worship and the last Sunday take down rooms @ 8 a.m.

  • washing of linens and blankets

We also participate in the annual Walk to End Homelessness in October. We walk together as "the Jolly Walkers" team, from Lynch Park in Beverly, downtown, pass the harbor, and back to the park. We ask for sponsors to help raise money for a fabulous program that helps our neighbors in need!
