Get Involved

The natural response to believing and belonging is then to become the hands and feet of Jesus in our world.  Here are of few of the ongoing opportunities to serve!

The Lord's Diner

Their Mission: The Lord's Diner exists to combat hunger in the community. The Diner's singular mission is to serve a nutritious meal with dignity and respect to anyone who is hungry.

When: Second Saturday every Month 

Riverside volunteers have been serving since The Lord's Diner started making and serving meals to the homeless and needy of the community since 2002. 

What: We assist in running the Dinner for that evening

The Lord's Diner has a list they send out of what positions are needed. 
From seating to serving to doing dishes we help with it all. 

How: Sign up and Show up!

At the start of the month we post a sign-up sheet on our Outreach bulletin board by the kitchen. 

Volunteers are expected to be at the Lord's Diner from 5-7:30 pm

Family Promise works with local Churches and charities to provide for families in need. 
They assist with food, clothes, housing, transportation and much more. 

We act as a host site for one week every 3 months. This means we provide rooms for families to stay in, two meals a day, laundry services and transportation to the day house. The day house is where families can shower, do laundry, have computer access and life skills training. 

Want to help? Family Promise provides training for the postions need. However, there are things for those who have not been trained. Our volunteer sign up list will be posted in the Ampersand Newsletter a month before our host week. 

Another way you can help is by donating items for our families to use.  Such as packaged snack items, hygiene items, flashlights, nightlights, games, and arts and crafts materials.
