John 3:16 Mission Volunteer Opportunities
My hubby, Steve, has been volunteering at the John 3:16 Mission in Tulsa for the last few months. He really enjoys it and likes serving in that capacity. The children there so need good role models in their lives and just someone to love on them. Most come from single parent homes or they are being raised by their grandparents. They don't have many clothes to wear and some are even homeless. When pizza is served, many stuff their pockets so they'll have something to eat when they get home. It's so sad where many of these kids come from, but John 3:16 does an amazing job meeting the needs of those who need a step up.
My friend, Julie, recently sent out this message posting Volunteer Opportunities at the Mission..."If you are interested in any of these opportunities, please contact Megan Thomsan, the Volunteer Coordinator, directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or 592-1186. They are wonderful to work with and it's a great time to expose our children to service projects. The Family Center has a children's educational program all summer. They would prefer that you commit to being there consistently once a week, but understand that is difficult with summer schedules. All the programs are planned and have supplies. You will be there to interact with the children and have fun doing projects with them."
The summer program runs June 16 - July 31st.
Monday - Art 2:30 - 4:30
Wednesday - Drama 2:30 - 4:30
Thursday - Bible Study 2:30 - 5:30
