Our 2023-24 winter shelter season finished last Wednesday, March 27th. We enjoyed serving the men from Room in the Inn each Wednesday.  We will begin our 2024-2025 season on Wednesday, November 6, 2024.

Room in the Inn provides a place for men to stay the night during the months of November through March.  Hermitage Hills Baptist Church hosts men on Wednesday nights.  We provide a hot dinner, cots with bedding for sleep, opportunity for a shower, clothing items, breakfast, a sack lunch and transportation to and from the Room in the Inn facility downtown.  Most importantly though we provide fellowship and conversation that points to Christ.  You can serve in many ways through:

Provide meal items - we partner with Whitt's, but like to add an additional meat, two sides, dessert, 10 sack lunches - we also like for the group/indidvidual to stay and help us serve the food

Host the meal - come and eat with us at 6:15 and join in conversation with the men

Drive the van - pick up the church van from Hermitage Hills at 5:15 pm on Wednesday, drive to the Room in the Inn facility downtown to pick up the men and bring them back to the church, pick up the men on Thursday morning at 5:30 am, drive the men back to the Room in the Inn facility and return the van to the church

Set up - meet at the church at 5:30 to help set up the room by placing movable dividers and cots with a mattress, a set of sheets, and a pillow

Devotion - each week we have a Christ-centered devotion and prayer before the meal, we also provide pocket testaments of the Gospel of John to those that are interested in having one

Stay the night as an inn keeper - two men stay the night as inn keepers to answer questions, make sure things are put away as needed, get breakfast items out in the morning, and take out the trash - cots are provided for sleeping

Wash bedding/towels - the twin sheets and towels can be picked up on Thursday morning and returned the next week on Wednesday morning

This is a wonderful way to value people and share Christ with our guests.
