This 24 hour retreat is designed to help students begin to develop an understanding of homelessness and to meet and talk with homeless individuals. Friday evening we will run Bingo games at Degage Ministries, which will also offer students an opportunity to meet and talk with homeless individuals. Saturday we will work at Kent County Habitat for Humanity, learning about their work and painting trim for use in their projects. We will stay overnight at First United Methodist Church in Grand Rapids. Part of our time there will involve learning about homelessness in Kent County and discussion about how persons of faith might respond. While this event is hosted by Wesley Fellowship, a Christian Student Organization, any interested person is welcome to participate. Each participant's beliefs and values will be respected. If participants are unable to attend the entire weekend, they may participate Fridayor Saturday.There is a $10 fee which includes Friday dinner, breakfast and lunch on Saturday and lodging, as well as transportation (if needed.)
