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 – tutoring students and helping families navigate the virtual school year. Virtual options, too. Also crossing guards and hall monitors needed. There are a variety of ways you can offer education support, fill out this form if you’re interested.
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 FBC’s (and sometimes Nora Elemntary’s) monthly food pantry
Housing – fielding maintenance calls on our help line, coaching 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.
