Freezing Nights Orientation Meeting

We will have an orientation meeting for all volunteers in the gym (Building 2) from 7:00pm-8:30pm on Monday, November 1. Please attend this meeting if you are interested in volunteering.

Freezing Nights
is a Christian ministry that provides food and shelter to homeless people in the Puyallup area during the coldest winter months (November - March). This winter, local churches will offer dinner, a time out of the weather, and fellowship to unsheltered neighbors in the evening. Guests will not be housed overnight. Lighthouse is privileged to be a part of this ministry that aligns with several of our Core Values: community transformation, grace-filled relationships, hands-on ministry, and faithfulness with God's resources. Everything we are blessed with in this life comes from God. We desire to share our time and resources to reach those in need. We appreciate your continued prayers for this vital ministry.
