Isabella County Restoration House

ICRHAs has become normal for the Shepherd UMC, we helped support the ICRH Homeless Shelter the week of Thanksgiving, November 20 -27, 2016 and again February 12 -18, 2017.   The shelter residents were  housed in the Central Michigan Free Methodist Church.  We were blessed to be able to  provide and serve food, interact with shelter guests, “chaperone” overnight,  and clean-up after guests departed in the morning.  As soon as plans are announced for the 2017-18 season, we will be making our plans for participating.
