OUR UPCOMING ROTATION:
Four times each year, FSBC Lawrence hosts 4-5 families for a one-week rotation - providing meals, shelter, and hospitality. Our next Family Promise rotation will be from Sunday, September 13 - Sunday, September 20! We will let you know what needs are available at a later date.
EXPANDING SERVICES AND VOLUNTEER OPPORTUNITIES:
Family Promise is broadening their scope of volunteering and fundraising during the pandemic and is asking congregations and individuals to consider supporting them in new and exciting ways.
We can help serve the Family Promise staff as they manage the influx of care our community is requiring. They are using Sign Up Genius to reach our community of volunteers. The sign up below includes tasks that help them communicate Family Promise’s gratitude for its support by simply sending thank you’s via cards, emails, or phone calls. And they will continue to update the sign up as needs change, so please continue to check in! If you are interested in coming along side Family Promise in a deeper way, please use the link below.
NATIONAL FUNDRAISING CAMPAIGN:
The National Family Promise Organization has begun a fundraising campaign to support the local chapters. Night Without a Bed aims to broaden Family Promise’s giving network. The numbers of homeless families in our community continues to grow and the effects of homelessness ripple far beyond the lack of a home. Please check out their link to see how our local community is stepping up to help and how you can become a part of the solution!
