CARITAS at FPC
Come show the hospitality of Christ to our guests!
CARITAS (Latin for love of humankind) is a Richmond regional congregation-based organization whose mission is to help our most vulnerable neighbors break the cycles of homelessness and addiction to reclaim their dignity. Watch FPC CARITAS video below!
During the week of December 1-8, FPC has the opportunity to host a group of mothers and children (infants-age 18) who will spend the evenings and nights in our recreation room. Join in to welcome these families to our church!
Dinner - Prepare, cook, and serve dinner for 30-40 guests (ideal for a Circle, small group, study group, class, families, etc.)
Lunch Prep - Prepare bag lunches in the church kitchen
Laundry - Wash guests' laundry at your home
Evening Visits - Visit with our guests in the early evening (talk, play games, read stories, do crafts, help with homework, have fun, etc.)
Overnight - Spend the night, serve breakfast the next morning, and distribute bag lunches
Set Up - Unload CARITAS truck, set up tables, chairs, and guest bedding supplies on Saturday December 1, time TBD
Take Down - Load CARITAS truck, take down tables and chairs, and clean up on Saturday December 8, time TBD
