Festival of Shelters Event

We will be celebrating the Festival of Shelters this year Sunday, October 16 and Monday, October 17. This is a time we as a community spend remembering all who have experienced need and reflecting on the ways in which God has provided. We will set up shelters to represent the various types of homelessness, share in stories with friends and spend time on the streets learning more fully what life is like for the homeless.

We will begin our time together by gathering on Sunday at 4pm to hear the stories of some of our friends and celebrate the ways in which God has provided for us. The program will last until about 5:15pm at which point a group will set out for night on the streets.

Join us for the gathering, and if you are interested in sharing in the experience of time on the streets, we invite you to join us from:
1. Sun 6pm- Mon 6am OR
2. Sun 6pm- Mon 6pm OR
3. Mon 6am-Mon 6pm.

At the end of our time on the streets, we will all gather together at 6pm on Monday to share in a meal and reflect on our time. If you are interested in joining us for time on the streets please let us know by October 10.
