Open Air Ministries - Volunteer with the Children's Ministry

Open Air Ministries - Children's Ministry Volunteer - Homeless Community Outreach

Love making children smile and teaching them about God's love?

Come volunteer with Open Air Ministries as they reach out to the homeless men, women and children in downtown Baton Rouge on the third Sunday of each month. We are looking for families (adults and their children) to assist with the children's ministry from 12:00-12:45 on select dates throughout the year. You can tell a bible story, sing songs with the children, have them color, play games or simply talk with them! Bring your kids and let them join in, too!

Every Sunday at 12:00pm homeless men, women and children gather for worship in a parking lot of SVDP next to the SVDP Soup Kitchen. While the men and women listen to bible stories and strengthen their faith, their children are given time to gather in a small group to enhance their own faith. Churches from around the city collaborate each week to continue this program. The Hands and Hearts of Mercy would love to assist the 3rd Sunday of each month from 12:00-12:45pm. There are benches in shade for the homeless men and women, Trader Joe's sets up a tent full of fresh produce, bags of hope (snacks, waters, sandwiches) are coordinated and handed out after the service and SVDP also has a tent full of items for their basic needs. This outreach has gone on and grown the past 18 years.

Open Air Ministries is an organization that has grown from the YMCA's outreach program. This Sunday ministry provides spiritual growth and development for the homeless community in downtown Baton Rouge. You can find out more information here: http://www.openairministriesbr.org/about/

Want to help? We need 2 families to volunteer on a given Sunday. You and your children are welcome to volunteer together!

You can read a bible story, color, talk and have fun with the children during the children's liturgy. There are usually 5-15 children between the ages of 3-13 years old. You and your children can plan an activity together. Crayons and paper are always fun for them, too!

If you and your children would like to volunteer please choose any third Sunday of a month that works for you.

Address: SVDP Parking Lot - corner of 17th Street and Florida St.
