Invitation from Family Promise


Dear friends, 

We are now are approaching hosting our second round for Family PromiseOctober 29th –November 5th 

We want to thank you for all you have done to help Family Promise become a reality in this faith community. 

Your prayers, donations, meals and time have been greatly appreciated.  It is so gratifying to know that one of our guest families now has a place to call home and a job.  Such blessings!

There is a training session this month for those of you wanting to work directly with our guests. This must be completed on Monday 10/23 if you plan on signing up for 10/29 through 11/5.  If you are making a meal, setting up or doing take down and doing laundry on the last day, no training is required. 

The training will be at Williston Immanuel, 156 High Street, Portland, Me (across from Westin Hotel, the old Eastland Hotel) from 530-830pm. If you would like to attend, please contact: Courtney Tabor-Abbott @

Monthly training sessions will still be available after this month if you can not attend on the 23rd. You will need to bring your own brown bag dinner, snack and drink. 

Signing up to volunteer, during our upcoming week, is now open to all three participating churches (CEUMC, St. Bartholomew, and St. Alban’s) any day, any slot or time of the week.  It is so wonderful that our faith community is working together as one to give homeless children and their families “shelter, safety, and sustenance- with a spirit of warmth and hospitality.”
