Family Promise offers Service Opportunities for HUMC members. Highlands United Methodist Church is partnering with local United Methodist Churches in “Family Promise”, a faith based effort to help homeless families in transition. There are shelters for Men and shelters for Women, but there are few temporary shelters for families who have lost their residences.
Wheatridge United Methodist Church offers a night time place for families to stay together as they attend daytime programs to help them find solutions for their particular situation.
We have volunteered to take on one day’s responsibilities on Friday, May 22nd. Our responsibilities include: Driving families to the daytime program in the morning. Driving them back from the daytime programs in the late afternoon. Providing dinner and fellowship from 5:30 until 8:30 in the evening at Wheatridge United Methodist Church and providing two overnight hosts to sleep in the church deal with any emergencies that may arise.

Family Promise provides a great opportunity to spread God’s Love beyond our church walls and provide for families in their time of need.
