Westminster partners with West Market Church (UMC) which annually operates a Weaver Extension Shelter (a Greensboro Urban Ministry initiative) from mid-December through March for approximately 15 men experiencing homelessness.
Westminster supplies a male overnight host every Saturday night and provides several evening meals for the shelter guests and volunteers. We are actively recruiting adult men to select one Saturday per month in January, February, and March to serve in this capacity. Each shift is from 5:30 pm Saturday to 7:15 am Sunday. Duties include checking in guests for the night, sharing dinner, fellowship, game and TV time with the guests in the evening, and helping set out breakfast. Volunteers share overnight duties with the shelter's director. One sleeps (in a private room) from 10pm to 2am, the other sleeps from 2am to 6am.
We also need a Meal Coordinator for this ministry. Duties include recruiting Westminster groups to prepare, serve and share a meal with the shelter guests, volunteers and staff on select Saturday nights.
If you are interested in serving as an overnight host or learning more, please contact Westminster member Robert Bell .
