What Is It?
Several times a year, we'll take you to visit one of our (many) community outreach partners so you can decide whether volunteering there is a good fit for you!
Why We’re Doing This
“For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others…” Mark 10:45
That’s the biggest reason!
But we also want to show you the great things our partners are doing to help those who need it most. We want you to know what’s going on in the world of outreach in the greater Grand Rapids area. You might like to help, but aren’t sure how.
During Voluntour, you’ll meet the people who keep services running at these locations. They’ll show and tell you what they do. It’s our hope that by actually seeing what goes on and learning firsthand what the need is, you’ll volunteer.
If you Voluntour and find a particular organization or service isn’t for you, that’s part of what this is all about. Just don’t give up, ok? There are plenty of other options.
Every one of us can have true impact, no matter how much time we have to give.
Next Voluntour: Dégagé Ministries
Thursday, March 16, 2017 5:30pm-7pm, Dégagé Ministries: 144 Division SE, Grand Rapids, MI.
Dégagé Ministries offers help and hope to homeless and disadvantaged individuals in our community. Responsive programming is designed to address immediate and long-term needs such as overnight respite for women in crisis, food, referral services and hygiene facilities.
As part of this Voluntour, you'll get a tour of the facility and hear about the different ministries they provide for the materially poor community.
We'll leave the 84th St. Campus at 5:30pm. You can ride with us in the church van, follow us or meet us there! We'll have you back at church around 7pm.
