Please contact Walter Arroyo (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions.

PLEASE DO NOT VOLUNTEER IF:

Volunteering at Christian Service Mission
For the last two months, we have been sending volunteer groups to serve weekly at Christian Service Mission where volunteers have been packing food boxes or hygiene kits for people in need. CSM has asked us if we can provide a group of 10 volunteers on Wednesday, June 10th and Wednesday, June 24th from 9:00-11:00 am. Please click below to sign up. Thank you!

Volunteering at Serving You Ministries
Serving You Ministries is a non-profit organization serving as a ministry arm to area churches and partnering non-profits to love our neighbor within their four core values of relief, development, relationships, and reconciliation. They strive to provide hope to families in the greater Birmingham area by providing sustainable solutions to challenges they face. They assist in education, child care, job readiness, safe and affordable housing, health and nutrition, and crisis relief through our hub partnerships.
MBCC has partnered with Serving You Ministries for our benevolence funds for the last several years. We have recently learned of their need for some volunteers on Monday mornings from 8:30-11:30, and we hope to be able to provide some people from MBCC to serve. Volunteers will be packing, sorting, and distributing food. Serving You only needs 8 volunteers during this slot, so please sign up below if you can attend.
There is also an opportunity to help with construction of some houses/apartments on Sunday afternoons. These homes are being built for some single moms going through the Serving You program. The Sunday afternoon construction volunteer slots will be from 2:00-5:00 pm on June 14th, 21st and 28th. The home address will be provided each week to those who sign up.
Please click the box below to sign up to either work at the warehouse on Mondays or home construction on Sundays. Thank you!!
