Family Promise in Kingsport

We shop for and provide an evening meal, overnight company, and breakfast for the Family Promise folks who will be living at St. Luke's in Kingsport.

To volunteer email

The shopping list and menu are planned already and Sandy at St. Luke's is wonderful to work with.

The shopper- who can be a cook of course- arrives at the church with the groceries at about 4:30PM.  Cooks prepare tacos with all the fixings, serve them and interact with folks as needed.

Dinner is between 5:30 and 6PM. Clean up and chatting usually will go until 7:30 or 8PM when cooks leave. 

Overnight folks (two are needed) should be there between 7:30 and 8PM. They have a bed and a relaxing time. Families mostly go to their rooms after supper, but there may be a kid or adult who'd like to chat for a while.

In the morning, breakfast is very quick and casual-kids may get granola bars or bananas and the van picks them all up between 7 and 7:30PM.

Choose any or all of the roles that you'd like! and our kids are a welcome addition at supper time.
