Congregations

 

Congregations in the Lake Houston area host Family Promise families four weeks each year (once a quarter). Our families begin their stay on a Sunday evening and spend the evening hours each night until the following Sunday morning. Families leave early each day, between 5-6 a.m. to attend various activities - work, school, training, etc. Volunteers from each church bring in home-cooked meals, and enjoy time with the families eating together. During the evening other volunteers arrive to take over responsibility, including our overnight volunteers who bring their pillow’s and P.J’s for a good nights rest and serve as an emergency resource should one be needed. Volunteers also serve in other capacity’s as well – shopping for groceries for breakfast and snack items for the week, setting up and tearing down the guest bedrooms at the beginning and end of the week, as well as volunteers who have a special talent they wish to share with the families during the week (example: kids / adult hair cuts).

 

Family Promise of Lake Houston provides comprehensive training for all of our Host Congregations and a support system for the Host Coordinators at each church. If you are interested in becoming a Host Congregation, please call us at 281-441-3754 for a personal presentation, and full description of the duties for Host Congregations.
