Worship - 6:00 p.m.
Dinner - 7:00 p.m.
Everybody's Christmas is an annual event here at Lovers Lane UMC, where we host hundreds of guests from around the city for a Christmas celebration. We invite people who might not have a home to experience Christmas and welcome them to our church home with radical hospitality. We will have an amazing worship service, followed by a seated dinner in Asbury Hall. Then we will make sure our guests receive a warm coat, a gift bag of essentials, and have a family Christmas photo. We need about 200 volunteers to help make this night grace-filled and special!
- Bus Captains
Bus Captains will ride on the bus to pick up our guest at Homeless Shelters. They will greet our guest, make them comfortable and talk to them as they ride to church. These volunteers will be outgoing and enjoy talking to new people.
Greeters will be stationed throughout the building to welcome guests as they arrive, and to help guests find their way around the building. These volunteers will be friendly and enjoy helping people.
