A Quiet Place is a project of the City Road Chapel United Methodist Church to offer a space for rest and renewal for our friends who are living on the streets in Madison, TN. We are reminded that Jesus called to his disciples to come to a quiet place for rest. As we’ve entered into a relationship with some of our homeless friends we’ve recognized the need for a quiet space to get warm on a cold day or cool on a hot day and simply rest. We aren’t offering much — a room with tables and chairs, a cup of coffee, and places to charge phones — but we believe that having a place to hang out for 8-10 people at a time offers us a chance to build relationships and help people experience the love of Jesus Christ in a tangible way.
After talking with other service agencies and our friends, we opened A Quiet Place on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m.
We are always looking for volunteers to supervise this space. For more information please email email@example.com.
