Churches Serving The Homeless
The ChristNet ministry is a partnership of local churches serving the homeless in Southeast Michigan. ChristNet was founded in 1992 as an overnight emergency housing program for the homeless in the downriver area. It is a cooperative ministry of downriver churches of many different denominations and backgrounds. All participating churches seek to share the love of Christ with men, women, and children in need of a warm meal and a place to stay. First Pres hosts ChristNet for one week every year.
With approximately 200 volunteers from First Pres, ChristNet brings our congregation together to help people in our area. First Pres provides a week-long overnight shelter in a safe and caring environment. During this week, our members sign up to prepare and serve meals, greet and assist guests, provide clothing and a overnight stay.
