Opportunities for churches and church groups

Dairy Donor needed:
A family or small group is needed to bring a specific list of about $50 worth of perishable items to the Hope Center for Women and Children once a month.  If you are interested in meeting this need, please contact the volunteer coordinator.

Chapel Leaders needed: The men at our Bethel Mission and Door of Faith facilities hear the Gospel message from a variety of groups. There are currently openings on the chapel calendar at both facilities. While coming once is welcomed, we are really looking for church groups to commit to coming once a month or once every two months. These groups will need to have a couple members become part of our M25 Network and submit additional recommendation paperwork as chapel leaders. Contact the volunteer coordinator for additional information.

Saturday Childcare: This opportunity takes place at the Hope Center for Women and Children the second Saturday of each month.  We need groups of about 10 (high school age and older) to take care of the children while their moms are in a sewing/craft class from 9:15 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. If you are interested in a date, please contact us as soon as possible as we are trying to make sure these dates are filled as early as possible. Dates available: September 10, October 8, November 12, December 10.

1st Friday Family Fun Night: Held at Hope Center for Women and Children from 6 p.m. to 7:45 p.m. Your group would plan activities to interact with our moms and children. We have many games available also. You would supply light refreshments. Dates available are October 7, November 4, December 2.

Distribute Door Hangers for our ENCORE Thrift Stores: Groups can come help us connect with our neighbors by distributing door hangers to let them know about our ENCORE Thrift Stores. 

Contact Terri Simmons or Merry Cunningham at (515) 265-7272 or through if you are interested in any of these opportunities.
