Winter Shelter Week
It won't be long before the Bruton Parish family will again open our doors and our hearts for the Community of Faith Mission (COFM) Winter Shelter (February 9-16, 2019). This will be the eighth year that Williamsburg churches, including Bruton, have offered warm, safe shelter and nourishing food to our homeless fellow citizens.
    Many of our parishioners have already signed up for the various roles available to serve our guests, and the Shelter Steering Committee is most grateful for the enthusiastic response. Volunteers are still needed on some shifts. Please consider signing up for these and contributing your time and talent to this incredibly important ministry. It's guaranteed you will find it a most worthwhile experience. It's easy to sign up — just visit bit.ly/COFMBPC2020 online!
    We ask that all volunteers attend one of the Training Sessions either on Tuesday, January 14 at 1pm or Thursday, January 16, at 7pm. This training includes interactive education offering insight into the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of the homeless. The plan is to have all of us better equipped to be helpful to our guests.
    Opportunity is there for all to contribute further to the program.  We always need financial support for bus tickets, laundry cards, hats and gloves, as well as funding to help pay for the meals for 25-30 people each night during the week. Please visit our website at www.brutonparish.org to donate online or simply drop a check in the collection plate (mark COFM in the memo line).
    We offer profound thanks to all those who have already dedicated their time and money to convey God's grace and love to those dealing with fear, uncertainty and homelessness in the cold winter season. COFM has asked that we not contribute clothing, but your financial support is welcome. If you prefer not to sign up online, please call Diane Abdo at (757) 253-2371 or Anna Martin at (757) 258-9527 directly.
