MCREST (Macomb County Rotating Emergency Shelter Team) is a partnership of churches throughout Macomb County that volunteer to house those who are homeless for one week.
Antioch is partnering with Triumphant Cross to help host this week of MCREST starting on Sunday, March 17 through Sunday, March 24, 2019 at Triumphant Cross in St Clair Shores.
MCREST is a great way to step out to love where we live by serving those who have fallen on challenging times this winter - and it takes many volunteers to pull off. From setup, check-in, food-prep, laundry and driving to overnight security, there are planty of ways to serve!
We will be serving up to 30 men this week at MCREST.
