Luther Memorial will host homeless families through The Road Home of Dane County during the week of June 9-16. Please consider volunteering for this meaningful ministry.
Volunteer opportunities include meal preparation, kitchen anchor, evening host, activity host, overnight host and breakfast host. We also need volunteers to set up the Sunday school suite on Sunday, June 9, and take down on Sunday, June 16. Please sign up on the board in the narthex.
We thank all those who have committed their time to this outreach ministry and continue to do so. We encourage new volunteers to try this ministry and experience the feeling of providing this very important service to families who are in need of support at this challenging time in their lives.
Even as we ask volunteers to mark the week of June 9-16 for our next hosting for The Road Home, we also remind you to set aside some time to volunteer for our hosting again on Sept. 1-8.
