The church, at 403 Pastor Fred Davis St. on the city's South Side, will offer shelter twice a week from now until April.
“This is a great opportunity for us to serve our brothers and sisters who are in need," ministry coordinator Jason K. Vanderburg said in a news release. “This isn’t something we plan to do for the season. Serving others is a mandate by Jesus Christ and we will continue serving people until Christ returns.”
The program is also inspired by Bethlehem's emergency sheltering program, the church says.
Doors will open at 5:45 p.m. and close at 8 p.m. The church will provide shelter and food Thursday and Friday nights, and breakfast Friday and Saturday mornings.
