Ongoing Serving Opportunities

Mentors Needed at Terry Redlin

The staff at Terry Redlin has let us know that there are still students who are waiting for someone to mentor them. Those interested in changing a child’s life and being a great source of encouragement as a mentor begin by filling out the application on Lutheran Social Services website. Follow this link for more information.

Celebrate Church Prison Ministry Opportunity

Celebrate Freedom, our own Prison Ministry, has been given the opportunity to work with Volunteers of America at their Summit Heights apartments in downtown Sioux Falls.  Our plan is to use the community room for a Saturday afternoon lunch of soup and sandwiches. This will help us build relationships, offer a brief spiritual program and eventually invite and transport them to 5pm Saturday service at Celebrate.

Two things are needed to accomplish this:

  1. Life Groups that will provide and serve a meal on Saturdays.  The more Life Groups involved, the less times they will serve.  Ideally we are hoping for ten Life Groups that will serve on a rotating basis.
  2. Sponsor and purchase Bibles (approximately $4-5 each) to be given to those that need them.  Any Life Group can take part in this.

If interested, please contact Al Neis (605)940-3777 or Rich Roste (605)359-2541. Thank you!

Serving Sunday Lunch at St. Francis House

St Francis house lacks volunteers to serve lunch on Sundays. Three people are needed every Sunday, from 11:45am to 12:30pm. It’s as easy as scooping food on a plate, along with a smile. If interested, contact Jodi Erickson at (605)321-9533.

Adopt a Sidewalk for the Elderly in Sioux Falls

The Active Generations Workers on Wheels “Adopt a Sidewalk” program is in need of volunteers to help the vulnerable, elderly homeowners in our community with their snow removal needs this snow season!  We currently have over 140 people on the list, and than 20 volunteers available to assist them so far!

Those willing to help would be assigned a homeowner (or two or three) within their requested zip code if possible.  (Most of the need is in the central part of Sioux Falls.)  This can be a volunteer opportunity for a single person, a family or even a team of volunteers to share throughout the season.

Please feel free to have potential volunteers contact Anne Young at WOW 333-3317.
