One of the best things about Nightwatch is the diversity of people who gather around the mission — “to reduce the impact of poverty and homelessness, in keeping with Jesus’ teaching to love our neighbors.”
The faith of the individuals who make up Nightwatch – as volunteers, donors, workers, tenants, and homeless neighbors – is as varied in form and expression as could be imagined. A long time ago, Nightwatch decided it could not define that faith. So we keep it simple. If you are good with loving your neighbor, you are welcome. No statement of faith required. All are welcome. We are Catholic, Presbyterian, Methodist, Episcopalian, Baptist, and undecided.
In the spirit of generosity, we invite you to pray as you are led.
