Entertaining Angels: Nomadic Shelter Ministry
"The most wonderful potluck you've ever seen, with people you don't know, and afterwards provide a clean, warm, safe place to sleep."
That's how we would describe the Nomadic Shelter Ministry, our partnership with Redwood Gospel Mission.
This ministry serves to house up to 36 homeless people overnight, in churches throughout Sonoma County for seven months a year, October to April.
We host the first Wednesday of 7 months, October - April: next is Wednesday, April 3.
Guests - homeless people -vetted by trained staff at RGM - will be brought to the church in vans. Our part will be to provide a meal, which we may choose to also partake of. This is an opportunity to share the life of Christ with the homeless, a sharing of food, conversation, and simple kindness. One of us may share a brief message of the work of Christ in our life, and hope in the Lord. Then our guests will lie down for a peaceful night's rest after what for many is an unbelievably hectic day.
The opportunity for us is to prepare and serve the meal, hang out with our guests, briefly share from the Word, and let the Lord work as we make ourselves available. This might be a good activity for small groups or people with a common interest in ethnic foods, as one example. Our church has agreed to host the first Wednesday night of each month for seven months, beginning October 3 and ending April 3. Food should be ready to serve by 6:00 each evening.
You will not be responsible for staying the night, nor for cleaning up the next morning.
Sign up at Welcome Center to volunteer time/resources.
Easter at Crosspoint
- Good Friday, Friday, April at 6pm in the Worship Center.
We will serve Communion to celebrate the sacrifice Jesus made for us.
- Resurrection Sunday, April 21 at 9:49am in the Worship Center.
Easter is an amazing story of tragedy and triumph. Hope from despair. The crushing weight of loss. The surprise of victory. This year at Crosspoint, we'll be celebrating Easter by looking at how we can have victory in our lives today. Come experience the full story of Jesus with an encouraging message that shows how the story of Resurrection really does change everything. We will also have Easter Brunch in the Ministry Center after the service.
Come join us!
