Come Catch the Vision with us! This 4-week series begins January 6 and is for those who are considering placing membership at Homewood or anyone who has missed the opportunity to attend this class in the past. Join us to learn more about Homewood, our ministries and the various ways you can get plugged in. Catch the Vision will be held during Bible class upstairs in Room 202. Space is limited so if you are interested in attending, please sign up online here.
Homewood is hosting a free series of foster parenting classes starting next month. The ten-week course (plus an additional orientation session) will take place here at the church building on Tuesday evenings starting January 29 with orientation on January 15. Childcare will be provided. For more information and to register go to the website for Lifeline Children Services (lifelinechild.org) and click on Foster Parenting Classes under the Engage tab.
If you’re interested in other ways to help vulnerable children in our area, we encourage you to contact two members of our Homewood faith family who can help, Cara Loy of Lifeline Children Services (firstname.lastname@example.org) and Bree Pettigo of Gateway Family Solutions (email@example.com).
Our weekend away for married couples takes place Feb. 1-3, 2019 at the beautiful WinShape Retreat Center in Rome, GA (2 hours away from Birmingham). Check it out: https://retreat.winshape.org/about/facilities/
The weekend will be designed to have a mix of a few intentional gatherings with the group along with free time to explore and connect with your spouse. The cost is $375 per couple, which includes lodging and meals. This will also be a “kid free” experience so you would need to plan accordingly.
Due to limited room availability, registration is currently closed for this event. If you would like to be placed on a a waiting list, please contact the church office.
If you have any questions please contact Bret & Lanie at firstname.lastname@example.org
If you’re looking for a way to serve a need in our community and reach out to our neighbors, join our Mobile Food Pantry team. On the third Saturday of each month, we bring much needed food to families at Jonesboro Elementary School in Bessemer, and we need volunteers to keep this effort going strong. It only takes a little of your time, but the rewards of helping others are hard to measure. If you would like to be a part of this Outreach initiative, contact team leaders Jay and Shelby Elmore or sign up online here.
