Interfaith Hospitality Network Service This Week

Durham IHN: A community response to homeless families.

Durham IHN: A community response to homeless families.

Blacknall’s IHN service week starts tonight and runs through this week (Jan. 4-10). The Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN) is a blessing to homeless families during these cold winter months.  Please pray for the volunteers as they provide meals, transportation and stay with these families during the evening meal and overnight.  Please pray for the families as they journey toward finding employment and affordable housing.

From IHN Coordinator, Anne Paulson, regarding needs for THIS WEEK:

Our host church, Cole Mill Church of Christ, has to do a lot of work preparing the space for the guests to live there for a week.  They are a small number over there and could really use some extra hands in the set up on Sunday, the 4th, at around 4pm.  They also need help putting things back in order for Sunday services on Sunday, Jan 11th, at about 7:30am.  These are ways that will really speak to our host church.

To volunteer, please contact Anne Paulson.
