Columbus House

Columbus House volunteers needed:

The Columbus House sign-up sheet for the second half of 2016 is now on the Welcome Table awaiting your participation.  Volunteer to help provide our monthly dinner at the homeless shelter!

It only takes a couple hours on the first Saturday of each month to provide a warm welcome and meal for the people staying at the shelter.  A main meal plus salad and dessert is sufficient.   Invite your friends (church or otherwise) to join you.

Learn more about volunteering at Columbus House.
