A new Lutheran/Moravian congregation called The Dwelling has been operating for about a year, primarily for, but not limited to, those who have or are experiencing homelessness.
Part of the ministry of this new church is providing Service Learning opportunities for youth from around the country. They will be coming to Winston-Salem in July to learn, serve, and somewhat live as our Neighbors experiencing homelessness. They will spend a week housed at a local church (sleeping on our shelter mats!) and will come to better understand the complexities of homelessness, serve at various locations, as well as learning to advocate for justice, accessible mental health care, affordable housing, and more.
The Service Learning Groups will be housed at Burkhead United Methodist Church 5250 Silas Creek Parkway.
The weeks of operation are: Monday-Friday:
