ROOM IN THE INN | WENDELL MCGUIRK | SIGN UP NOW
Room in the Inn is an outreach ministry to homeless men in the Nashville area. We strive to meet the basic human needs of food, shelter, and clothing (Matthew 25:35-36). The program begins in November and runs through the end of March. Each Monday evening we pick up 12-13 men in our church van from the Center for Human Development on 8th Avenue and bring them to our building for the night. During their stay with us, our guests are given two hot meals, shower facilities, laundry facilities, and clothes. We also present a short devotional and make ourselves available to meet their spiritual needs as well. This is a great opportunity to serve and have a direct influence in someone’s life.
