Outreach

Volunteer Sign Up for Refugee Families

Thank you for helping welcome and host our guests from Afghanistan! Below you will find a few ways you can serve at this time: 

  • Evening/Weekend Host - As an evening or weekend host, you will hang out with the family- play games, answer any questions, go walks, play on the playground, and just be a friendly presence.  

 

  • ESL Instruction- You will help the family work on their English during a daily planned "classroom" session. Previous experience teaching ESL is preferred.

 

  • Overnight Host- As an overnight host, you will spend the night at the church should anything happen overnight (like the fire alarm going off) and answer any questions that might arise.
    • We have air mattresses/couches for you to sleep on, but ask that you bring your pillow and linens/sleeping bag to reduce laundry; however, we do have linens available should you need them.
    • Our guests are lodging on the third floor and you will be staying on the second floor- giving the families and you a little space and your own bathrooms. You'll be staying in the office suite (Room 241 or 242) located by the staff lounge, at the foot of the staircase that leads to the 3rd floor. 
    • We ask that you arrive by 8:00 pm and stay until 7 am.
