How is Hillcrest involved?
This program has been around for many years all across the united states! There are multiple churches working together in northern Kent county to serve, and house individuals in this program. Hillcrest is honored to be one of those who are able to host families!
We are a bible based church, therefore everything we say and do is rooted in the living Word of God. In James 1:27 (NIRV) it says:
“When widows and children who have no parents are in trouble, take care of them. And Keep yourselves from being polluted by the world.”
Each church takes a turn to house families for a week at a time per quarter. As of right now Hillcrest is scheduled to house Family Promise Guests for the weeks of:
Due to Covid-19, host churches have been postponed until June 2021.
However with Covid-19 regulations, we are still working with Family Promise headquarters on safety protocols and any possible cancellations.
