Passing Prayer Bracelets
An outreach that started in 2014, Passing Prayer Bracelets have been shared with over 3,000 people in the counties we serve. You can make the bracelets, write a prayer and give it to somebody in need. Wonderful opportunity for individuals and groups alike ages 8 and up. For those younger than 8, or if you aren't in a position to make them, we can give you the bracelets to pass out. 


Become A Mentor
Help another in need through our short-term mentorship program. Meet three times for an hour with your mentee to help guide them in a particular area of their service plan (i.e. budgeting, career development, etc). You will receive background information about your mentee and mentorship goals prior to your first meeting. All volunteers must attend our mentor training prior to being assigned.
