New Prayer Request
Please pray for Denise Carroll’s mom, Shirley Gordon, who is in the hospital with Covid. Also pray that her stepdad, John, stays healthy.

 Hello friends, 
We have two OPEN weeks coming up for Family Promise (this current week and the week of March 12th). These are weeks where we do not have a specific Host Congregation and therefore will be relying on our volunteer base (friends like all of you) to fill the slots. I will be the point of contact for those who sign up during these weeks, and I am reaching out to you to help us get all of the slots covered. If you can take an open slot, it would really be much appreciated!
If you are available and can help us out, please let me know or sign up on:  SignUpGenius. Also, feel free to mention this to any of your FPA volunteer friends who you think might want to help.  As always, thank you for all your support for Family Promise and our great mission in Athens.
