Project Serve is about helping believers live in the bigger picture by putting their faith into action. We share different ways and opportunities to serve locally and globally. We also encourage people to not just serve once, but instead, find a place to regularly serve.
Whether it is a group going to do yard work for an elderly widow, going on a mission trip to help teach a skill, hosting a neighborhood kid’s party where the gospel is shared, etc., we want people to put themselves aside and make serving others like Jesus the top priority.
Great Organizations to Serve In (In the Metro Atlanta Area):
CEF of Cobb: A children’s ministry located in Cobb County, GA. Serve once a week in a Good News Club (after-school Christian clubs held in public schools), or in their summer clubs, which are like Vacation Bible Schools that are held in parks, backyards, apartment complexes, etc. Visit cefofcobb.com or contact Megan Downer (contact info below) for more information.
The Hope Center: A pregnancy center in Woodstock, GA that offers care and counsel to pregnant women who are in the process of figuring out what to do, as well as provide parenting skills training for those who decide to keep their baby. There are a number of ways to volunteer at The Hope Center, from sorting clothes at their consignment store, to being trained to be an advocate for women who come in the center. Contact Megan Downer (contact info below), if you are interested in serving at the Hope Center, and she will provide you with more information.
MUST Ministries: An organization all about serving our neighbors in need. There are several ways and locations to serve, and this is a great place to serve as a group. Serve by helping in the donation center, or by serving a meal at the Loaves and Fishes Kitchen (provides meals to those staying in the shelter). Before serving you must fill out a volunteer application (find it here) and email the volunteer coordinator. However, if you would like to serve as a group (for example, a church group), one person from the group can contact the volunteer coordinator, and everyone will not be required to fill out a volunteer application.
