"Coming Home" Program is Coming Back! - Thursdays, February 1-June 3
Dinner from 7:00-8:00 p.m.
All are welcome for dinner in the Westminster Room
The Coming Home program is an extension of our long-standing Prison Ministry. In collaboration with The Beck Institute on Religion and Poverty at Fordham University, Coming Home seeks to empower those who are returning to the community from incarceration. This 18-week program pairs RPC congregants with the formerly incarcerated to help them transition back to their communities. Coming Home provides life skills, goal-setting, and sharing personal stories in a safe and supportive community.
Our Coming Home ministry offers various volunteer opportunities:
- Mentors—congregants who are paired with participants, supporting, encouraging, and journeying with them through the program.
- Guest Speakers—presenters are needed to teach networking, job-searching, and other skills.
- Cooks and Hosts—each evening begins with a meal prepared and served by RPC congregants who share table fellowship before the program begins.
Funding for the third year of this ministry is coming from generous gifts made to the Imagine Initiative.
