Serve and be transformed with our community!
We believe that effective ministry is relational at its core. When relationships are interdependent, learning is mutual, serving is reciprocal, and friendship is life-giving.
Our kids ministries include dynamic outreach programs for neighborhood kids on Tuesday and Thursday nights, and a more in-depth after-school mentoring program called "Leaders-In-Training" (LIT) that meets Monday and Wednesday afternoons during the school year. Volunteers in our kids ministries serve weekly over 12-week trimesters.
Our Adult English Learners program is highly relational and emphasizes verbal practice. As a volunteer conversation partner, you make a big impact just by speaking English and building a friendship. And, you don't need to speak another language! Volunteers serve weekly on Tuesday or Thursday evenings over 12-week trimesters.
Our Latino and Refugee youth ministries include fun, relational Teens Club gatherings that meet on Tuesday and Wednesday nights and intentional discipling for youth who are longing to build friendships and grow in their faith. Volunteer mentors disciple and serve alongside teen leaders from our community.
