Explore these areas to learn more about our partners & learn how you can get involved.

Ways to Serve Now

Thrive Parkridge

Did you know you can volunteer to serve dinner at Thrive Parkridge? Either drop off or stay and serve a meal you make at home or pick up along the way.  

There is also an opportunity every Tuesday from 4:34-5:20pm to lead a game, craft, activity, or whatever else you might think of for the students' elective time.

These simple acts encourage the students and staff in many ways. Plus, it's a great way for your life group to serve together.  Email Jenny Kate if interested: jennykate@helpusthrive

You can also donate to their Amazon Wishlist using the button on the left.

lonsdale Food Pantry

We have the privilege of partnering with Lonsdale United Methodist Church to help provide food for our friends in Lonsdale.  

If you'd like to volunteer to pack boxes on a 3rd Wednesday or serve in the pantry on a 3rd Thursday, please contact Lara Davis:

Emerald Youth

Get involved in Lonsdale at the Emerald Youth campus.  Small group leaders and tutors are especially needed.  Contact Kevin Dubose if interested:

Hope resource center

There are many ways to support women and families in our community through Hope Resource Center. We partner with this organization to provide mentors, take meals for Parenting Classes, purchase and/or wrapp baby shower items, or simply donate to their general operations. These are all things we would love your help with.
Contact Megan Matthews to volunteer:

ESL Classes

(Lonsdale or Fellowship)

Lonsdale English Classes
Monday and Wednesday (weekly), 9:30am-11:00am

Help empower Hispanic women through practical, everyday English. You can do this by either helping teach English or taking care of their preschool children during classes. Classes are twice a week at Lonsdale United Methodist Church.

Fellowship English Classes
Tuesdays (weekly), 6:30-8:30pm

Looking for an opportunity to get to know and develop relationships with internationals? Volunteer to teach English to speakers of other languages. Knowing another language is not required, just a heart for people of other cultures and a desire to make them feel welcome.
