|SCSM Volunteers are Reaching for a Hand and Touching a Heart
Our volunteers are very important, for without them our ministry would be very limited.
The need for volunteers is great and there are many areas from which you may choose to participate.
All volunteers are given training. We need people who can, for example:
♦ Assist with mailings
♦ Write letters and cards of encouragement to those who are ill and bereaved
♦ Help with office work
♦ Assist with Bible Studies
♦ Lead Bible Studies and GriefShare classes
♦ Visit nursing homes, hospitals, and homes
♦ Be involved in our Community Prayer Hour each week
♦ Do baking when necessary for our groups
♦ Answer the telephones at the Center
♦ Take care of light housekeeping needs
♦ Weed flower beds
♦ Do other yard work
♦ Help with our Clergy Luncheons,
♦ GriefShare Breakfasts, Ladies Teas and other special events.
We would be happy to find a place where you would feel comfortable serving.
Chaplain Liz is the Director of Volunteers and schedules meetings several times a year where we
discuss the kinds of work we do as volunteers and how we can make it better. These meetings
provide a time to discuss any questions that volunteers have as well as the various volunteer
opportunities available at SCSM and also, for volunteer training. These meetings also provide a time for the volunteers to get to know one another which is very important. We want to work together as a team so that we can keep our programs running smoothly.
Our goal is to expand our services so that we can reach out more to the community. Right now we
have volunteers at the Center for each weekday from 10 until 2, but we see that in the future there
will be a need to have the Center open more hours each day, as well as a greater need to reach out
to those who are shut-ins at home, in nursing homes and hospitals.
If you have a desire to serve the Lord and help others, consider becoming a volunteer for us.
Knowing that you have brightened the day for someone is a wonderful feeling and quite often it’s the
result of doing something as simple as sitting with a shut-in, or giving someone a sincere and loving
smile. It is through our volunteers that lives are touched as we reach for a hand and touch a heart.
We are always looking for interns who are interested in learning how to work with the ill, dying and
bereaved from a Biblical perspective, with compassion and excellence. SCSM offers excellent training
opportunities for the right candidates. Contact us at 540/349-5814 if you would like to apply.
