Summer Lunch Ministry
When school is out, kids who would normally get a free or reduced lunch sometimes go hungry. This ministry serves lunches to kids at nearby apartment complexes that have over 95% of children on school lunch programs.
Packers check the lunches for contents, make sandwiches as needed, and organize the lunches so that children in the same neighborhood have similar lunches. Weekdays 10 am - noon.
Norcross Cooperative Ministry Donation Delivery
NCM is a faith-based ministry dedicated to providing emergency assistance to families in Norcross and surrounding areas of Gwinnett County. We hold food drives and special offerings for NCM; however, we give year-round to this important ministry. Volunteers transport donations from the collection bin (in the walkway between the sanctuary and fellowship hall) to the NCM facility each week. Commitment: 1 hour every other week.

Christmas “Angel Tree” Team
At Christmas our church works with several local schools and charities to provide toys and clothes to children in need. Church members take paper angels off a Christmas tree in the foyer, purchase the item listed on that angel, then return the gift to the church. A small team of volunteers organizes and carefully packs the gifts to make sure that each child gets gifts and clothing appropriate for their age and requests. Commitment: Time is divided between 3 or 4 volunteers. 3-4 hours working with counselors at partner schools and charities putting together the list of children. 1-2 hours putting up Christmas tree and labeling and hanging the angels. Approximately 6-8 hours on the “packing day”, checking in, organizing and packing the gifts. 2-3 hours making the deliveries.
Vacation Bible School
Be a part of the exciting and largest kid’s event of the year during the first week of June. There are many opportunities for leading in ways that touch lives while building relationships that draw kids and adults closer to Christ. Volunteers of all types are needed: leaders who work with children, the Decorating Team, Registrars, and the Snack Team.
We are proud of the Mt Carmel preschool. Not only has this preschool won awards in the community and in our church conference, the children of the preschool have won a place in our hearts. Volunteer to be a date for Pizza, mystery reader, attend the Breakfast with Santa, or preschool nativity play, pray for the school and school leaders, and promote the school. Commitment: as desired.
