The Weaver Extension Shelter at West Market Church (formerly West Market United Methodist Church) is an extension of Greensboro Urban Ministry’s (GUM) Weaver House Shelter. This shelter provides a place to sleep and meals for approximately 15 men during the winter months. The same guests stay at the shelter each night and GUM staff helps them find employment and housing.
Westminster will continue its partnership with West Market Church and work alongside several other congregations to staff the shelter with volunteers and provide evening meals.
To provide an evening meal, please contact Westminster member Dottie Henderson at 336-765-4733. To serve as a male overnight host, please contact Westminster member Robert Bell at 336-324-3528 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Or write WE Shelter on your worship response card to have someone contact you.
We are in need of volunteers to prepare evening meals on Saturday, March 9 or Saturday, March 23.
