Called to Serve
Opportunities to serve our Community
Join local community advocacy and outreach with Nora Neighborhood Ambassadors.
Help in one of the four advocacy groups and receive training as needed:
Education – Tutor students (in-person and virtual options) and help families navigate the virtual school year. Also, crossing guards and hall monitors are needed. There are a variety of ways you can offer education support – fill out this form if you’re interested.
- Mondays, 4-6pm – Neighborhood Ambassadors needs tutors to help students complete online work! No background in education required.
- Fridays, 8am-3pm – The team specifically needs help at lunch (11:30-12:30) from someone who enjoys leading recess-type activities. We also need team leaders for alternating Fridays, which would involve classroom management and leading circle time. Necessary skills: comfortable leading a classroom, but no education experience required.
Social Services – Help connect Nora neighbors to community services (doctors , dentists, tax prep, food stamps, child services and/or coaching those residents looking for financial counseling, home ownership, finding a job, or benevolence assistance from Faith Church).
Food – Help with First Baptist Church’s (and sometimes Nora Elementary’s) monthly food pantry.
Housing – Field maintenance calls on our help line – coach residents on how to request the services they need from the complex, and/or advocating on their behalf when needed.
The Guest Services Team still needs a few people to greet during services in August. The greatest need is for individuals to sign up to greet before and after second service. You can sign up on your own but also as a family – if you have junior high and high school students, this is great way to serve together! Email Catherine if you’re interested.
If you’re attending Sunday in-person services, we could use your help on the Media Team! You may feel that this is out of your element, but there are many ways to be a part of the team and you’ll receive the training you’d need; all you really need is a heart to serve! Email email@example.com if you’re interested.
We’re partnering with FBC to support their food pantry ministry. Contact Debi Alexander if you are interested in helping with the monthly First Baptist Church food pantry (fourth Tuesday of every month). Roles include delivery unload and pre-bagging (before pantry date) and set up and distribution on pantry date.
Faith Church is supporting the monthly Nora Elementary Food Pantry by supplementing donations. Our hope is to serve 125 families in the Nora community. Please consider donating one or more grocery bags filled with pre-selected items (total cost about $10/bag).
If you’re interested in being a part of this monthly opportunity, contact Bill Shewan.
The Sunrise Team works behind the scenes to unlock doors, turn on lights, and set up spaces on Sunday mornings. They do the things that enable us to meet together and worship. But they need a few more volunteers! So, if you’re a morning person and interested in serving, contact Brittany for more details.
Looking for a way to serve the community? Volunteer with Shepherd Community. There are several opportunities to serve. Help is needed for food packing/distribution, the food pantry, meal deliveries, and the virtual reading program.
