Also Saturday, June 13, is the Faith Community Shelter at St. Philip’s Episcopal Church in Scotts Valley. Community Covenant is joining with St. Philip’s where a group of 16-20 homeless participants rotate sleeping in a different church each night of the week. St. Philip’s is providing the sleeping space and Community Covenant is providing the meal. The Faith Community Shelter is scheduled for the second Saturday of the month. Volunteers are needed to prepare and/or serve the evening meal, and we are starting to put together a monthly schedule through the end of the year. The immediate need is for this month, June 13. If you are able to participate by preparing or serving the meal, please contact the church office 831-438-4276 or [email protected]. If you are interested in participating in the program in an upcoming month, please also contact the office.
