DINNERS FOR THE HOMELESS AT HOMEWARD BOUND SHELTER 

RUMC prepares and serves dinner for HomewardBound on the third Tuesday of every month. Each month one of the Redlands UMC ministry teams hosts the event on a rotating basis (i.e., Missions, Sunday School, Leadership Team, etc., with the assistance of Boy Scout Troop 353 and anyone who else who wants to participate that month).  There are approximately 35 volunteers for each meal -  preparing food, delivering the food, or serving the dinner that evening.  Anywhere from 140 - 185 folks are served a warm meal.  

 Many friendships are built among our volunteers as they work together. There are relationships formed between the youth of the church and their elders; between the Scouts that meet in our facility and the church members. The volunteers also develop friendships with the guests at Homeward Bound of the Grand Valley.

 Church members & friends have many different opportunities available to them to participate as meets their needs - cooking or baking in their kitchens, donating canned & paper goods, serving meals, preparing food at the Shelter for that meal, working together in the church kitchen, and bonding with new friends.

The purpose of the TLC Ministry Team within the church is to provide a caring and loving connection to church families and friends in need of support. The group is made up of persons committed to visiting our treasured friends who are homebound, live in care facilities, are sick, or are hospitalized.

We meet monthly, the first Thursday mornings, after Communion Sunday (which is the first Sunday of the month). We gather at 9:00, room 116, at Redlands UMC. 

All are invited to join us. You can help by visiting someone, making phone calls, or driving.
