We are pleased to report that the GuestHouse Hotel project is nearing completion. The VERY brief summary is that FPC will serve as a passthrough of funds and will help to coordinate the purchase & operations of the GuestHouse hotel (321 E 5th Ave). The hotel will be used to provide homes for people experiencing homelessness. The residents will mostly be workforce-ready, and they will pay rent. This project will provide them with the safety and stability needed to stay out of homelessness, and continue building a life of dignity and joy.
No church funds are used for this, and operations will be carried out by a hired company. In a few months, we expect to pass ownership on to another entity. FPC will have no debt or profit from this endeavor.
Pastor Matt will speak more about this from the pulpit, and as always you are encouraged to call or visit for more discussion!
