Family Promise Service Opportunity

Grace UCC is a proud member of the Family Promise network.

Family Promise is a network of faith-based groups that provide shelter for temporarily homeless families in Hunterdon County as there are no homeless shelters in our county. Host congregations provide sleeping accommodations, dinner, breakfast & lunch (on weekends) and supplies. During the day, the families go to the day center at Family Promise, or off to work, and return to the host congregation around 5 pm.

Grace UCC does not have a building, so we cannot host. Instead, we serve as a support church for several other area congregations, meaning when they host guests in the Family Promise system, we provide volunteers to perform a variety of functions.

Our next opportunity to serve is coming up in August, at the Flemington Jewish Community Center.

You don’t need any special skills or abilities to participate, just a friendly smile and a loving heart.
