Room In The Inn
Do you have just 3 hours this winter to help our Room In The Inn Ministry?
It all begins on December 1 and lasts until March 31. Every Sunday and Wednesday night during that time, we pick up 13 neighbors at Urban Ministries at 6:00 p.m., bring them to Sardis House.

Just one time…
- Can you arrive at 5:00 and stay until 7:30, make a few beds, set the dinner table, and share a meal with our neighbors? If so, then we need you to be a Greeter!
- Could you help our neighbors with the laundry process, watch TV with them, help them look up jobs on the computer, enjoy snacks or just have a chat? Then we need you at 7:30 – 10:45 as a Friend!
- Are you able to arrive at 10:45 p.m., lights are already out, and neighbors are asleep? You might be needed to get some pain medicine for a neighbor, but mostly you can take a nap or read or enjoy a movie on your iPad. At 4:45 a.m., after you have made the morning coffee, you can go home and get a little more sleep. You are called an Owl, and we desperately need you!
- At 4:45 a.m., the Roosters arrive. They prepare the breakfast, wake the neighbors, put out the sack lunches, move the bag of linens to the laundry room, spray the beds. At 6:30 a.m., you are ready to go home and prepare your own family for the day.
Sardis Presbyterian has been a part of this amazing ministry for over 20 years, and we feel called to continue our efforts, especially since more and more families are needing a warm bed and a warm meal on a cold night. We need you to be a volunteer. Won’t you join us?

Jesus told us to love our neighbors; participating in this ministry is a wonderful way to show this love.
