Call for Ushers and Greeters
How would you like to be a part of a ministry that welcomes people into our Sunday worship? We are looking for additional ushers and greeters. Ushers and greeters share hospitality to visitors and parishioners every Sunday morning. Responsibilities include greeting all who enter the church, distributing service bulletins and collecting the offering. In addition, ushers assist those with special needs, help ensure that seating is available for all in attendance, and check that the church has a clean appearance after the service. If you are interested in being a part of this very important ministry, please contact Melissa Hamon.
Fort Bend Community Partners Rainbow Room
Last year, 3,086 cases of child abuse in Fort Bend County were reported, with 2,713 being assigned for investigation (an increase of 13% from 2014). All of these children are eligible for services from the Fort Bend Community Partners Rainbow Room.
The Rainbow Room helps children and families in crisis by supporting the efforts of Child Protective Services (CPS) caseworkers. It’s stocked with emergency supplies for caseworkers to distribute to Fort Bend families in crisis.
In a recent Kinship placement, the caseworker for an infant requested a crib, stroller and other essentials to assist the grandmother in providing proper care for her grandson. With the Rainbow Room’s assistance, the caregiver has been given the opportunity to raise her grandson in a safe environment.
Fort Bend Cares’ funding supports the purchase of car seats, cribs, toddler beds, twin beds and bunk beds. Some caregivers simply cannot afford these. Beds and car seats are items many of us take for granted, but are critical to children’s safety.
The Rainbow Room also hosts a Back to School Supply and Uniform Drive, as well as a Christmas Project. To find out more about the Rainbow Room, call 832-451-5867 or visit www.fbrr.org. For more on how Fort Bend Cares supports this organization and others, visit www.fortbendcares.org.
