WELCOME TEAM

We want YOU to join the Welcome Team! Here at TLC we are passionate about welcoming people into a space to encounter Jesus. We believe that weekend services would not be possible without it’s volunteers. We are currently looking for volunteers to be greeters and ushers, individuals to be information, welcome desk, or book nook hosts, an on-duty health professional in case of emergency, or to be the first smile an individual sees as they pull into the parking lot! If you are interested in joining any of these teams, CLICK HERE to find out more. Any questions, feel free to email .

SUPPORTING STUDENTS

Over the next 4 months, during the Fall semester, TLC wants to stand in the gap and help families with their needs for childcare and tutoring/homework help. With distance learning and parents going back to work, there is a lot of concern that students don’t fall through the cracks academically and there are needs for children to be in safe places with good supervision.

There are several ways YOU can help and volunteer your time. We are in need of virtual volunteer tutors for Middle School students twice a week, English Language Learning support for 2nd and 3rd graders Wed. and Thurs. mornings, and much, much more. Click tlc.org/supportstudents for more information and to find the link to apply.

BRIDGE OF HOPE

We exist to provide help to children and adults with disabilities, adults facing the challenges of mental illness and homelessness, and nursing home residents. If you would like to get involved or have questions please contact Mary Masters at .

During this pandemic, many of the care facilities do not allow visitors. A batch of cookies or a hand written card could really lift the spirits of a resident. If you would like to help out in this way, contact Mary for more information.

LETTERS & CARDS! We desperately need more cards and letters for the nursing homes we serve. Uplifting notes, cards, artwork, children's letters and drawings are needed to encourage our friends who are now so isolated. You can write letters that we can pick up and deliver for you. WE WOULD LIKE EVERY RESIDENT AND STAFF MEMBER TO RECEIVE A CARD OR NOTE OF ENCOURAGEMENT. We also want to match committed writers (commit to writing at least twice a month) with specific residents. Help us spread the hope in Jesus' name!

We need help purchasing BIRTHDAY GIFTS for nursing home residents. We can arrange contactless porch pick up and deliver for you. WE ESPECIALLY NEED GIFTS FOR MEN. Contact us if you'd like suggestions.

Testimonials

"I wish you could see and hear the expressions of those in my old neighborhood, at work, and even my new landlord, each time I've shared this story with them of how you all showed up on a Saturday to help a stranger.  I believe this is how the Gospel is preached - through everyday Christians who live out their faith." -R.H.

“You don't need any special skills to be on the volunteer list for HomeAid. As long as you're able bodied and have some free time, you can help with simple tasks like moving, packing and yard work.” –Kyle

Testimonials

“I got involved with the TLC Hospital Visitation Team because I wanted an opportunity to pray for, comfort and be a blessing to others. What I quickly discovered however, is that as often as I pray for, comfort, or bless a patient, they do the same for me in return!” -J.D.

“People seem happily surprised to learn their church family is aware they are in the hospital. It can be a place of such fear; where faith can hit a brick wall. So I go, I listen, I pray and I offer a little encouragement, when needed. It’s that simple. No specials skill required, but the blessing I receive is REAL! It never gets old!” -C.F.
