Cooperative Cold Weather Shelter
Our congregation collaborates with a handful of churches in the Springfield area in order to provide shelter on cold nights for those experiencing homelessness. This is an effort that requires lots of volunteers and resources, especially during cold months but also around the year with planning and preparation. It’s among the most important things we do as a church.
Paije Luth is the Brentwood volunteer coordinator for these efforts. If you are interested in finding out how you can be involved, or if you would simply like to learn more, contact us and we will put you in touch with Paije.
Our newsletter provides regular updates on the most pressing needs related to the cold weather shelter; we encourage you to subscribe for updates.
