Winter Shelter

Winter Shelter

Wednesday, January 11, 2023 - Wednesday, January 18, 2023

Location: Virginia Beach United Methodist Church, 212 19th Street, Virginia Beach, VA US 23451

We are excited to announce that we will be hosting the Winter Shelter Program here at Virginia Beach UMC starting January 11th, 2023. This program provides warm meals and a safe place to sleep each night for single adults experiencing homelessness and we are honored to partner with other local churches to provide this service to our community.

First Presbyterian will be hosting guests Jan. 4-11, 2023 and Virginia Beach UMC will be hosting Jan 11-18, 2023. There will be multiple ways to get involved for all ages throughout these 2 weeks.

This is an all-hands-on-deck event, and we would love volunteers to help out at both churches during our weeks. We will invite up to 60 individuals who are experiencing homelessness to spend the night in our churches during one of the coldest months of the year. We will not just be providing them 2 hot meals, but rather a chance to show them God’s Grace and Love as we take care of His children over the course of these weeks. Please take a look at the sign-ups below and get involved! Prepping and serving meals is a great opportunity for a group of friends or a life group.

“Learn to generously share what you have with those who ask for help, and don’t close your heart to the one who comes to borrow from you.” Matthew 5:42
