Beds Around the Altar

October 4 - October 8

Volunteers Needed for Beds Around the Altar

October 4—7, 2021

All Saints, in conjunction with our partners at Hope South Florida, will be hosting several families from the community, the week of October 4th. These families have found themselves at a difficult time in their lives, particularly being without a permanent or safe place to live. All Saints is part of a network of ecumenical churches in Broward County that provide week-long stays until family shelter space or other temporary housing becomes available. During the week, volunteers serve in essential roles by providing Christian hospitality while these families are guests of the All Saints community. Individuals or families prepare a meal and visit with the families. Each evening, two over-night hosts spend the night providing a safe place to sleep. With All Saints’ helping hands, these families are supported during this vulnerable time in a loving community of faith. Many of our volunteers have expressed what an awesome and rewarding experience they have after spending time with these families who are in true need of our fellowship. We are coordinating volunteers to prepare and host evening meals for the families at 5:15 pm, and hosts to be on-site overnight with the families from 7 pm until 7 am in the church sanctuary. As a faith community, All Saints provides a safe place to sleep, dinner, breakfast, a bagged lunch, showers and laundry facilities.

Hebrews 13:2     Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing that, some have entertained angels without knowing it.
