Family Promise Club 180

Family Promise Club 180

Family Promise is off to a great start meeting the needs of homeless families in Effingham County. Under the great leadership of Marsha Cornell and Herb Jones and many willing volunteers, we at Rincon UMC have successfully completed our first two host weeks! In the first phase of Family Promise’s development the focus was on securing host congregations, volunteers, and facilities. The second phase is ensuring Family Promise’s long-term viability to ensure that we can continue to serve homeless families in the future. Club 180 is a group of people who commit to contribute $180 per year (just $15 per month) to sustain Family Promise’s mission. One goal is to have 10 people or families from every supporting church to commit to be a part of Club 180. Together, this would mean $27,000 of sustainable income for Family Promise. As members of the Board of Directors, Herb Jones and Pastor Melissa are already Club 180 members. Rincon UMC just needs 8 more participants. In this season where we seek to be grateful for all the blessings of our lives, please prayerfully consider if God is calling you to be a blessing for those in our community who struggle with homelessness.  To learn more about Family Promise, click their logo below.
