ROOM IN THE INN
Help is needed for our ROOM IN THE INN Winter Shelter program. Our church is responsible for 22 Saturday nights to transport, feed and provide shelter for 10 men, beginning November 3, 2018 and going through March 30, 2019. Many of you have volunteered in years past, but for those who haven’t, we need drivers, cooks and overnight hosts for each of these nights. It’s a great way to enjoy fellowship with one another and also extend love to those in need in our community.
Donations Needed: Men’s clothing, socks, underwear & outerwear in any quantity.
Attention Men: We need your help! There are 22 open spots for overnight hosts starting Saturday Nov. 17 and needed most weekends going forward. Choose a night and invite a friend to join you (you do not have to drive the bus).
Sign up on the volunteer schedule located in the administrative building entrance or contact:
Mike Voyles - firstname.lastname@example.org or 615-856-6550
Andy Braswell - email@example.com or 615-491-6971
We are honored to be a part of Room In the Inn and serve those in need through our church. Please pray for this ministry and most importantly, the homeless. It is our hope and our prayer that we can make a difference in someone’s life. Even if it is just for one night!
HG HILL MIDDLE SCHOOL: Rise against Hunger
For Christmas this year, we want surprise our friends at H.G. Hill Middle School with a treat! Our former mission, The Last Minute Toy Store, was no longer viable for us, so it made sense to gift our neighbors. As you know, we have been looking for ways to work together. To date, we have partnered with kids to help with reading, we had several kids come judge our Ice Cream Social, and on Monday, Nov 19 from 9am-3pm, we will be packing 100,000 meals side by side for Rise Against Hunger. If you want to volunteer, sign up HERE.

This year we are pleased to partner with Dollar General for a first-time “Hill Holiday Mission Event”! Belle Meade UMC has been invited to make donations toward $5 gift cards and assorted goodie bags for H.G. Hill students this Christmas. The funds we raise by December 5th will then be matched, dollar for dollar, by Dollar General – up to $ 3,500! To give, you can write “Hill Holiday” on the memo line of your check, give online at bellemeadeumc.org/Give, or use VENMO on your phone and search for “Belle Meade UMC”. Please help us reach our goal by December 5th – GIVE at least $10 and help KIDS WIN this Christmas!
