PACEM Winter Hosting 2023

October 28 – November 11



CFUMC will host up to 35 men overnight in the Fellowship Hall between Oct. 28 and Nov. 11.


During the PACEM Winter Hosting Program churches and other community organizations host guests who need shelter during the cold weather months from late October through March.  Each organization provides shelter for 2 full weeks.


During our hosting we will provide space for sleeping cots, serve an evening meal and a grab-n-go breakfast in the morning.  Guests start arriving at 5.30p and will depart by 7.00a.  Bathroom and shower facilities will be available to the guests.


CFUMC was a founding member of PACEM in 2003 along with First Presbyterian Church and several other downtown faith communities.  We have been an active participant in PACEM every year since.
