JOIN US IN PROVIDING IN PROVIDING A SAFE, WARM PLACE FOR EIGHT HOMELESS GUESTS

GNUUC provides dinner, a warm place to sleep, breakfast, and a lunch bag to eight homeless guests on the first Thursday of every month here at our church as part of the Room in the Inn program.

If you haven't had the opportunity to serve, this is the time! Our church home comes alive to its mission when we open our doors, and this is the last night for the year for the program at GNUUC.

We will be walking new volunteers through every step of the process. Come join us and lay out beds and supplies, or pick up guests downtown at Room in the Inn, or make and serve a warm, home-cooked meal, or spend the night as an Innkeeper, or drive our guests back to Room in the Inn, or put the church back in order later in the morning.

To Volunteer, contact: Jesse Spencer-Smith
