COFM Winter Shelter - January 13-20, 2019



Ready for Volunteers to be the Hands and Feet of Christ


For the  seventh year (2019), Bruton Parish will provide food, lodging, showers, haircuts and a warm welcome to our homeless neighbors. Bruton is one of more than 33 congregations in the greater Williamsburg area that support this important ministry under the umbrella of the Community of Faith Mission (COFM). Our week at Bruton begins with dinner on Sunday, January 13 and ends with breakfast on Sunday, January 20.
    Our Bruton Shelter week is made possible by YOU! Because of the dedication and support of so many parishioners, our guests, which can number up to 25 per night, receive a warm and safe place to sleep, a nourishing dinner, hot breakfast, and a bag lunch to sustain them during the day. Our shelter is held in Lewis Hall and opens to guests every evening at 6:30pm.  There are opportunities to support check-in, dinner, security, overnight, breakfast and check-out.
    Parishioners who have volunteered year after year will tell you they believe this hands-on ministry is the work we, Christians, are called to do. If you haven’t volunteered for a shelter week in the past, please consider doing so. There is a dedicated group of leaders who will show you the ropes! The ability to sign up online is now available ... click HERE. Despite the need for 125 individual volunteer spots, they go quickly!
    If you have any questions or if you’d like any additional information, please don’t hesitate to contact Sally or Bringier McConnell at COFM@brutonparish.org or (757) 575-7224.
