It’s really cold outside. Can you imagine sleeping outside when the weather is freezing. Unfortunately, lots of people in Winston Salem have to do just that. That’s why we’re thrilled to have been asked to use our new building as an overflow shelter for the homeless during these really cold nights. Of course, we said yes. Now, when the regular shelters are above their capacity, our church will be used to give people a warm, dry place to spend the night.
How can you help? Glad you asked! This Sunday, February 17th, right after our worship service, we’ll pack meals that will be used at our shelter, as well as other shelters in the city. They will be simple meals – a sandwich, some chips, fruit, and a dessert. We’ll pack them right in our sanctuary and everyone is welcome to help.
We’re New Story Church, and we believe in making a hands on difference.
