Opportunities for churches and church groups

Dairy Donor needed:
Families or small groups are needed to bring a specific list of about $50 worth of perishable items to the Door of Faith Ministry Center once a month.  If you are interested in meeting this need, please contact the Church Relations Coordinator.

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. 

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.

Work projects at our ENCORE Thrift Stores: One of the areas in our ministry where we need the most hands-on help is in our Thrift Ministry. Groups are needed to complete various projects in and around our ENCORE Thrift Stores throughout the year.

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