Martin Luther King, Jr. PADS Day of Service
Monday, January 21
from 6 am - 5 pm in Fellowship Hall
Faith is taking that first step, even when you don't see the whole staircase.
~Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr~
Faith is even greater when you are homeless and may not see a staircase at all. On January 21, we will honor the steps of our homeless community members and create an atmosphere of Dr. King’s hope. On Sunday nights, FCC hosts a men’s PADS homeless shelter. The next morning, the men filter into our community and many utilize the libraries to stay warm & safe. Since the libraries are closed on MLK Day, we keep our shelter open an additional 12 hours that day and celebrate our guests!
The day looks like this...
6 am Early Riser Lounge Upstairs: Coffee, donuts & newspapers to
greet our men who will not be sleeping in, while not disturbing the sleepers.
