Fearless Dialogues Congregational Experience - Mark your calendars now for Sunday, March 15, 2020! Our Formative Congregations Grant is offering us a unique opportunity. We are bringing animators from Fearless Dialogues (www.fearlessdialogues.com) to our congregation for a special experience. Worship will be different on that day and we will be nurturing our faith in new ways. Our leadership will experience a version of Fearless Dialogues in January, and then the opportunity will be offered to the entire congregation. We are VERY excited about this spirit-filled, creative, and challenging offering; please pray us through the development process and plan to attend!
CARMEL UMC FOOD PANTRY– This month we are collecting peanut butter and jelly along with personal care items (shampoo, deodorant, toothpaste, pads and tampons, laundry and hand soap).
Family Promise (FP) Hosting - March 1- 8 FP is a not-for-profit organization that helps
FAMILIES experiencing homelessness. FP runs two rotations, 14 people each, each week throughout the year. During the day their home base is the FP Day Center. While there, adults get help finding permanent housing, searching for jobs (if they are not already employed) & navigating additional services that are available to them. School age children head off to school/camp from the Day Center. In the evenings, each rotation of guests is welcomed at one of the many congregations in the FP network. St Peter’s is one of those congregations. St Peter’s typically hosts FP guests four weeks throughout the year. This is where YOU come in.
During our week of hosting, the following opportunities are available to support this St Peter’s ministry & share compassion with our neighbors in need:
14 times to drive our guests. (FP van provided)
7 dinners to host
14 evening hosts (2 each evening)
14 overnight hosts (2 each evening)
Set up of guest rooms on Mar 1st (after the second service)
Tear down of guest rooms on Mar 8th (6:45a.m.)
Come by the FP table, in fellowship hall, starting TODAY (online sign up will be available at that time, also) to see how you can put your faith into action, to help our neighbors in need. New to FP…we will happily partner you with a veteran volunteer. Please consider this opportunity to serve our neighbors in their time of need.
