Main Ways to Serve Others with ROC
Community Meals: We believe that sharing a meal is a simple and powerful way to build community. At the table we share more than food, we share our stories. We learn each others' names. We break down barriers. We grow together. Currently, ROC serves two community meals per week: Tuesday nights (during pantry service) and Sunday mornings (before Chapel). We need volunteers who are cooks as well as community builders!
Physical Work Projects: There are tangible aspects of service that allow us to use our hands and feet to improve the quality of life for the people of our neighborhood. Weekly projects like unloading and stacking food for the pantry. Receiving, processing, and arranging donations to the Resale Shop. Painting, cleaning, and landscaping. Data entry and newsletter mailings. Crisis care kits. Individuals and groups also sign up for special days, weekends, or week-long of service projects. No matter your age or level of expertise - we can use you!
Mentoring & Training: Perhaps you want to work directly with people. We provide opportunities for people to mentor or train children, youth, and adults through the ROC Leadership Institute for Tomorrow (L.I.F.T.). Help people grow in communication and conflict resolution skills. Train people to do things that empower them to improve the quality of their lives. Groups can also connect with our neighbors in these ways while here on day, weekend, or week-long mission trips. Connect personally with the people and build lasting friendships.
