Call For Shelter Volunteers

Call For Shelter Volunteers

Dear Old First members and friends,

Our Winter Shelter is just days away! On Tuesday November 1 st , we’ll be opening our doors to 30 men who for six months will be calling the social hall their “home”.

As is customary of Old First, we will be hosting the opening shelter dinner this Tuesday at 6:30pm. All are welcomed to attend.

In addition, I am asking that anyone interested in volunteering by serving as a shelter dinner team (i.e. Preparing and serving a meal for 30) to email me or see me after service this Sunday. To date, for the month of November we only have 7 meals accounted for… typically we strive for 20. With that said, I need your help!

Lastly, if like me you’re super busy, but would love to help, we always welcome premade meals that can be frozen and reheated like casseroles or spaghetti and meatballs. These dishes can always be dropped off the church office Monday through Friday or slipped in the freezer one morning before worship (just make sure you label it “For Men’s Shelter”).

If either sounds of interest, please visit our Winter Shelter page or feel free to email me at

See you in church,

Alesha Thomas ~ Outreach Minister
