Elim will be hosting homeless families at Elim Center May 5 through May 12. Families Moving Forward is a program of the Beacon Interfaith Housing Collaborative.

Here’s how you can volunteer:

  • We will be recruiting volunteers at church on Sundays in April.
  • You may sign up HERE
  • You can call the church office at 763-537-8481 and leave your name and phone number.

Ways you can volunteer include:

  • Sunday, May 5 after church (12:00pm to 2:00pm) We need around 10 volunteers to set up the family sleeping rooms in the Sunday School rooms The families arrive at church around 4:00 p.m. We need volunteers to welcome the families and show them their rooms, and volunteers to serve dinner.
  • Monday through Saturday (May 6 – 11) Each day we need around 6 people to greet guests, serve supper, and help with children’s activities. We need 2 people to serve as overnight hosts, sleeping at church in case there is an emergency and waking the families in the morning.
  • Saturday, May 11 We need 2-3 people to serve a warm breakfast from 7;00 to 9:00 a.m.
  • Sunday, May 12 (7:00 to 9:00am) We need around 10 people to disassemble the sleeping rooms before church.

We had a great experience hosting 4 homeless families in December 2018 and look forward to hosting families in May. Thank you!
