During the winter months, members of GUMC find great joy in serving the homeless of Shelby County. GUMC has committed to hosting Room In The Inn every Friday night November through March providing a warm meal, showers, a safe clean bed in which to sleep, and breakfast the next morning. Extending a helping hand, a place of acceptance, non-violence and showing the love of Jesus Christ to those in need is the goal of this ministry.
During the summer months Room in the Inn will operate on a limited basis to shelter women. On the first Friday of each month, May through September GUMC will welcome 12 women to The Cottage for food , fellowship, shelter and love.
GUMC provides our guests with a new T-shirt, underwear, and socks each night we host. Unfortunately, we cannot accept donations of shoes or other clothing due to limited space. To donate NEW men’s boxer shorts, women’s underwear, sports bras, t-shirts, gloves, hats and scarves (all sizes welcome) leave donations in drawer marked RITI near the Fellowship Hall. Items can also be purchased on our Amazon Wishlist by clicking here.
