The Macomb County Rotating Emergency Shelter Team (MCREST) is an organization that houses the homeless in local churches during the year. Shepherd’s Gate participates by opening our doors to help the people in need in our community.
During our week, we provide 60 guests with a safe and warm environment to sleep, three meals a day, shower, clothes (if needed), daily transportation, laundry service and activities in the evening. We offer a safe place to stay, a listening ear, prayers, and a sincere desire to show God’s love to them while they are here.
This year, our MCREST week is Sunday, April 24-Sunday, May 1. Our guests arrive at 5p and stay in the building overnight. This ministry requires many volunteers in order for it to run smoothly. Last year, we had 300 volunteers help. Please look for us in the Fellowship Hall or to go to sgatechurch.org to sign up beginning March 20.
