Q. How Does It Work?
A. Each month we look for opportunities to serve. We call each opportunity an "Out-Serving Opportunity." We tell you the dates, find out how many people we need to help, then we ask you to join in and head out into the community!
Q. Do I Need To Have Any Certain Skills?
A. Nope! We will train you as needed based on the Out-Serving Opportunity. We've had 3 year-olds helping out, so don't let the word "serve" scare you away!
Q. How Do I Dive In?
A. Typically we have sign-up sheets in our campus lobbies, but you may also contact us via one of our amazing Pastoral Assistants:
