The focus of Room In The Inn is to provide seasonal temporary shelter and hospitality to the homeless of Lexington. The heart and soul of this ministry is the participation of congregations and faithful volunteers who serve our guests for the winter months of November - March. This ministry provides us an opportunity to be a blessing to others and show them the love of Christ.
Our task at Tates Creek Christian:
To host up to 14 men on the 4th Thursday of each month from December through March. To provide them an evening meal and a place to sleep for the night. We also provide them a breakfast and a sack lunch to take with them the next day.
What we need:
We ask Sunday School Classes or other groups to take a given week and serve as hosts throughout the year. Their job is to plan each week's evening meal and provide hosts for the evening. We also need individual volunteers to help us in the following areas:
Overnight Hosts - Men who will stay the night with our guests when needed.
Lunch Makers - To prepare the sack lunches for the guests.
Set Up Crew - To set up the beds and room for the guests.
Take Down Crew - To break down the beds and room the next morning.
Bus Drivers - To assist in transporting men to and from Tates Creek Christian.
This is a wonderful ministry that will bless you as much as it does our guests! Please consider being a participant! Volunteer lists will be available later this fall. For more information, contact Chris Lee at 684-7240.
