Outreach Opportunities

Acts of Kindness

  • Every fall we encourage individuals, families, small groups and friends to do a service project in the community.  Our desire is to make an impact on our neighbors and others in the community, shining the love of Christ through service.
  • To see this year's projects and details on how to get involved go to tlc.org/aok or click HERE

Dress A Girl

  • Do you like to sew?  Help make dresses for girls around the world who very seldom receive new clothing.
  • Can't sew but want to be involved anyway?  We need people who can pack kits, send packages, or donate 100% cotton material and other knick-knacks for sewing.  
  • For more information and a detailed list of what is needed, contact Barbara Taylor at

ESL Teachers

  • We are looking for volunteers to be trained to be ESL teachers in our area.  What a great way to reach out to immigrants in our community by engaging them in simple English discussions and activities.
  • The training will be held on Friday, January 19 in the evening and all-day Saturday, January 20 at Redeemer Anglican Church on Morrissey near Water Street.  We may need to charge a nominal fee for the training, which will help us buy student and teacher books for the class and not have to charge our students.  However, we do not want the fee to be an issue for anyone interested in serving our community in this way.  For more information, contact Seth Schapiro at 
  • TLC's Spanish Pastor, Julian Pizarro, also has a group of ESL teacher volunteers.  If you are interested in helping his ministry, you can reach out to him at 

Emergency Response Team

In light of having so many disasters back to back, we would like to form a database of volunteers who can help at a moment's notice for disasters in our area.  We need people who are willing to purchase, cook, and/or deliver food to shelters, fill sandbags, help with debris cleanup, etc.  If you are willing to be on a list of volunteers for such needs, please fill out this form.

Angel Tree - Giving Grove

Every Christmas we fill our lobby with trees full of gift tags for children of incarcerated parent(s), low-income families, and skilled nursing home residents. If you would like to make a difference in someone's life at Christmas by bringing some cheer to someone through a gift,

Safe Families

  • Another great organization we partner with to help families that are in crisis is Safe Families.  Their local website is www.safe-famileslocal.org.  Safe Families for Children doesn’t take kids from their parents. Rather, parents voluntarily allow host families to care for their children giving parents peace of mind that their children are protected and safe – and so that parents can focus on getting back on their feet.
  • We are looking for host families who could take in a child or teen for a short period of time while the parent(s) can work through necessary issues. If you are interested in finding out more about this outreach, contact Liz at
