Volunteer Ministries

 “When a stranger sojourns with you in your land, you shall not do him wrong. You shall treat the stranger who sojourns with you as the native among you, and you shall love him as yourself, for you were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the LORD your God” Leviticus 19:33-34

 

As Christians living in such a diverse city, we have a great opportunity to reach across cultural lines to love those around us.  To love others as Christ loved us and to be His hands and feet to a broken world.

Here are some of the ways that we at Second Presbyterian Church can love and serve those around us:

 

 

Getting involved...

 

at our adopt-a-school, Berclair Elementary:

 

Team Read

Team Read is a literacy program that focuses on helping second graders build their reading skills.  It involves a one hour commitment every week and allows you to work one on one with the students.  If you are interested in becoming a part of Team Read, or just want to explore the program please join us for our Team Read training.

Team Read training will be held August 22 10:00-11:30 in room C310 

*Please RSVP to Amy Williams at

 

Adopt a Classroom 

Several of the classrooms are still up for adoption!  As a small group or CC, you can work together to help a teacher and class with small projects and needs throughout the year.  This is a wonderful way to offer help, encouragement and develop real relationships with the teacher and students.

 

Special Events

Participate in Teacher Appreciation Week, volunteer as a proctor, join the fun at the Halloween Carnival, serve at the Open House dinner, work at the third grade etiquette training, or beautify the campus at the annual Clean-up day.

You can also assist a teacher or help out in the library.
