Do you have 90 minutes a month to spend in conversation with other church members about the Wellspring Outreach Ministries? We meet on the first Tuesday of the month at 7pm. That leaves you plenty of time to get through traffic, grab a quick snack, and get to Old City. When asked, many people sitting in the pews say they came to Old First by way of the Outreach Ministries. Our congregation cares deeply for these ministries and we welcome you to join the standing leadership group (SLG). Being on a leadership committee allows you an opportunity to share your experiences and help shape what we are doing.
In case you are new, Old First has (1) Clothing Cupboard which serves 80 individuals on Saturday mornings; (2) Men’s Winter Shelter which serves dinner to no more than 30 men November- April; and (3) the Urban Service Camp ministry which provides local volunteer opportunities. All three ministries are a labor of love for those of us who work and volunteer with them and we always welcome people who want to be more involved in any/all of these activities.
Time Commitment: Meetings are 90 minutes and there could be emails throughout the month
Volunteer Opportunities: You could decide to become a host for the Cupboard or Shelter
Perks: Hang out with some awesome church leaders, sometimes there are snacks at meetings, and sharing in God’s work with me
Also- it’s time to start scheduling your shelter dinner (Age 14 yrs and up only please). See the sign up here: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/30E0C4CA4AB2EAAFA7-oldfirst1
See you in church,
