Volunteer Opportunities

Adopt a Senior at Copperwood Apartments – 
In continuing our partnership with Copperwood, they have a few residents that are in need of some grocery shopping. You would contact the resident and pick up their groceries 2-4 times a month when you shop for your own and drop them off at their apartment. Please be willing to commit to a month and if you need to pass off your senior after that let Patrick Nazaroff know.
One of their residents is looking for someone to pick them up and take them to the store, so if you are willing to help her out.
Please contact Patrick Nazaroff at if your family is interested in helping or would like more information.
God’s Work Our Hands – 
God’s Work, Our Hands Day is September 13th! We are collecting items to make “birthday boxes” for all the foster children in Angel Reach’s programs. If you prefer not to shop, you can donate funds for shoppers to use. Items can be dropped off any time or mailed, but the pastors will be available every Sunday  in August from 10-12 to collect in the drive through and offer a quick blessing! Email Jenny McKenna if you have any questions.  To sign up or for more information click here

VBS 2019

We had an incredible week at VBS with 146 kids and 65+ volunteers! Thank you to everyone who spent time getting supplies together, decorating, loving children and cleaning up. Thank you to those who donated items we needed! This week would NOT have been possible without the help of each of you. I am so lucky to get to experience such a great week!
