Family Promise - AKA Salem Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN)
Salem First Christian Church has a long standing relationship with Family Promise (IHN) that seeks to help homeless families to get back on their feet in a way that keeps the families together and honors that they are God's children. Over the years we have taken on different commitment levels that began by being a supporting congregation to host churches. Eventually we discovered that we can host the families at the church at different times of the year. If you would like to learn more about Family Promise please visit their website at http://salemihn.org/.
In 2018 we will have one BIG Service Sunday on July 29. This Service Sunday will be concentrated at one local community resource to make a big impact. The projects at this site will range from painting to hosting at the hospitality tent and there will be something for all ages and abilities. The projects will be posted on the FCC Life page soon. We would love for you to join us in serving our community.
