Care for Creation Ministry Opportunity

Join a small group to “till and keep” the mall gardens at the front and back entrances of the church.  

 Contact Patricia Molnar by text or email – 770-977-7010 or riciamolnar@gmail.com.

An excerpt from the Pope’s Encyclical Letter: On Care for Our Common Home #124: According to the biblical account of creation, God placed man and woman in the garden he had created (cf. Gen 2:15) not only to preserve it (“keep”) but also to make it fruitful (“till”).

Family Promise Hosting Weeks: June 23-July 21

It’s that time of year again where Transfiguration will host families experiencing homelessness this summer for 4 weeks.

The Transfiguration parish has many return volunteers with such very big hearts.  But we also witnessed the kindness shown by the many who volunteered at the warming center this winter.

The volunteer roles needed for Family Promise are very similar to the volunteer roles at the warming center.  We are always looking for new volunteers who want to care for those that have met misfortune and who are in need.  The families that we host arrive as strangers, become our guests, and leave as neighbors. 

There are many different ways you can volunteer:  help load and unload the van that brings the beds and belongings, launder sheets, purchase food staples (e.g. breakfast, lunch items), prepare dinners, and spend the night for the 4 weeks that the families will be with us.  Transfiguration does ask that you be VIRTUS trained and background checked for spending the night since there are children involved.  All very simple tasks that come with high rewards.

Please take a look at the Sign Up Genius link provided to see what you can help with.  You will receive so much more than you will give.  Join us!

Any questions, please feel free to email Karen Humphreys at khumphreys2009@gmail.com or Renee Morrison at rmorrison@familypromisecobbcounty.org or Kristy White at daisykristy@gmail.com.

Es esa época del año nuevamente en la que Transfiguración acogerá a familias sin hogar este verano durante 4 semanas. La parroquia de la Transfiguración tiene muchos voluntarios que regresan con un corazón muy grande.  Pero también fuimos testigos de la amabilidad mostrada por los muchos que se ofrecieron como voluntarios en el centro de acogimiento este invierno.

Los roles de voluntarios necesarios para Family Promise son muy similares a los roles de voluntarios en el warming Center.  Siempre estamos buscando nuevos voluntarios que quieran cuidar a aquellos que han conocido la desgracia y que lo necesitan. Las familias que acogemos llegan como extraños, se convierten en nuestros huéspedes y se van como vecinos. 

Hay muchas maneras diferentes en las que puede ser voluntario: ayudar a cargar y descargar la camioneta que trae las camas y las pertenencias, lavar las sábanas, comprar alimentos básicos (por ejemplo, desayuno, almuerzo), preparar cenas y pasar la noche durante las 4 semanas que las familias estarán con nosotros. Transfiguración le pide que esté capacitado en VIRTUS y que se verifiquen sus antecedentes para pasar la noche, ya que hay niños involucrados. Todas tareas muy sencillas que vienen con grandes recompensas.

Por favor, eche un vistazo al enlace Sign Up Genius proporcionado para ver en qué puede ayudar.  Recibirás mucho más de lo que darás.  ¡Únete a nosotros!
