“God’s Warm Place” is a cold weather overnight shelter program available during the months of December, January, and February at the First Presbyterian Church, 260 West McLaughlin Avenue, Madisonville, KY. We encourage anyone who does not have access to a warm and safe place to sleep to utilize this community ministry. The only requirement is that our guests cooperate fully with our volunteer staff and do not disturb others.
We will provide a warm and secure indoor space in our gym with mattresses, blankets, bathroom facilities, and warm beverages for anyone who needs overnight shelter from the cold.
On nights when the temperature or wind chill (“feels like” temperature) is forecast to be 32 degrees or below by The Weather Channel (or Weather Underground), we will fly a white flag on the outside wall of the gym, and open the shelter doors at 7:00 pm. The shelter will remain open until 7:00 am the next morning, and all men, women, and children will be welcomed.
If you would like more information about the shelter, please call the church office at 270.821.6426.
