It's getting close to that time again... time for CUMC and Grace Church to be blessed with welcoming our Family Promise families to Creekwood! Our hosting is the week of May 31-June 7, 2015. It takes many trained volunteers to host the families. If you haven’t had training and want to help, please contact Sandra Burrus.
Family Promise of Collin County is a local affiliate of a national organization that has helped families in need for more than 25 years. The Family Promise model operates through Interfaith Hospitality Networks of 10-13 faith based congregations within a community who join forces to help families who are homeless regain self-sufficiency. Family Promise provides food, shelter, and support services for homeless families. They provide advice and advocacy for at-risk families to prevent their becoming homeless and educate people about poverty and the means to combat it.
Let's make them feel right at "home" by filling up this volunteer list! Just plug in when and where you can.
Please provide your phone and email so that we can contact you with any schedule changes that may impact you.
We appreciate each and every one of you for your commitment to this awesome ministry and extend a heartfelt Thank You!

We all need a plan for our money.
Financial Peace University (FPU) is that plan! It teaches God's ways of handling money. Through videos, class discussions and interactive small group activities, FPU presents biblical, practical steps to get from where you are to where you've dreamed you could be. This plan will show you how to get rid of debt, manage your money, spend and save wisely, and much more!
FPU classes meet for an hour and a half each week for nine weeks and will be led by FPU veterans and Creekwood church members Terry Alderson and Julie Stelly. Creekwood’s FPU will meet on Monday evenings at 6:30 p.m. beginning June 1, 2015. Childcare is provided if you indicate your need when you sign-up.
When you participate in Financial Peace University you will become a member of FPU. You will receive all the class materials and access to the FPU online resources you need to succeed. Your membership means that you can attend the FPU class as often as you like. Spouses and engaged couples can attend together with a single membership, and teens living at home are welcome to attend with their parents.
Cost for the study is $100. Please make checks payable to Creekwood UMC. All materials will be provided to you when you arrive at the first session Monday, June 1, 2015.
To sign up to participate, please fill out and submit the form below. Deadline to sign up is Sunday, May 24, 2015.
