Family Promise of Bristol

Family Promise of Bristol opened in June 2012 as the twin city’s chapter of Interfaith Hospitality Network, a ministry of housing for homeless families.  Participant families are provided housing in FPOB3ten area churches.  During the day, the children attend local schools while the parents receive access to services at the Family Promise Day Center, located in the former sexton’s house adjacent to Redeemer church.  We are thrilled to be an important part of this newest ministry.

About once per quarter, our downstairs Sunday School rooms get made up with beds, tables, and other accessories.  Each family has a private bedroom, and they share a common lounge area.  Meals are served family-style by church volunteers.  Friends at Faith Lutheran also support our ministry here at Redeemer by providing food and volunteers.

Volunteers are needed during our host week to provide meals and to stay overnight at the church (in case of emergency).  If you are interested in volunteering to help with Family Promise, please contact Ellen Leach.
