Volunteer Spotlight: Summer Volunteering

As the school year ends, and the hot, sweltering summer months approach, many find themselves on a break (obviously not the dramatic, Ross-and-Rachel kind) and looking for something to do with their spare time (or their kids’ spare time).  Luckily, there are a myriad of opportunities for local volunteering.  These programs allow for individual, group, or even family participation.

1.The Medical Center:  During June and July, teenagers (14-17) are encouraged to donate at least one half day a week, while other volunteers are asked to donate 100 hours on a yearly basis.  All volunteers are required to be compassionate, patient, respectful of  confidentiality, attend a training, and complete an application, which can be found here:  http://mcbg.org/_documents/970005_Adult%20Vol%20Ap.pdf

2. The Center for Courageous Kids:  RLC is already acquainted with this program that encourages and uplifts kids with life-threatening illnesses, as our Hope Cafe has given monetary gifts in the past.  However, volunteers are also needed throughout the year, especially during the summer months.  For more information, and to fill out a volunteer application, follow this link:  http://www.thecenterforcourageouskids.org/volunteerOpp.html

3. Lost River Cave:  For the nature lover and explorer, Lost River Cave has various jobs for volunteers of all ages.  Trash clean up, preparing supplies for educational groups, and helping to maintain flowers and landscaping are among the things the small park needs.  In addition, if you have a special skill in photography, plumbing, electricity, or creativity, they could use you too.  View the other areas of need and complete the volunteer application here: http://www.lostrivercave.org/volunteer/

4. SkyPAC:  If you have an interest in the performing arts, then contact SkyPAC at 270-904-5000 to ask about becoming an usher for upcoming events and performances.

5. United Way:  This group is constantly on the lookout for ways to enhance and improve the community of Bowling Green, but needs volunteers to help make it possible. Participating with United Way can look like reading to children, delivering meals to low income families, or organizing a food drive; there are countless opportunities, and your summer can be quickly invested by visiting their site and clicking the “sign up now” button:  http://www.uwsk.org/get-involved/volunteering.html

6. Real Life Church:  Of course, if none of the above is for you but you’re still longing to find somewhere to get involved, talk with Pastor Brandon about the needs of RLC.  While there are opportunities to serve on Sunday mornings as a greeter, Sunday School teacher, tech team member, or in the praise band, there are ways to help out during the week too!

Around RLC this week: Men’s Event

rlcThis past weekend, the men of RLC gathered to learn, fellowship and enjoy some great food! Men’s Ministry Coordinator Patrick Klein spoke about the last semester of the men’s life group where they studied “Fight” by Kenny Lucky. Patrick also shared with the men about the upcoming Main Event Men’s Conference in Nashville featuring Hall of Fame NFL Quarterback Kurt Warner. Men who attended last year’s conference also spoke about their experience attending and their excitement for this coming year.

The group also talked about the importance of making a difference in everyone around them. Patrick shared with the group that as they strive to raise sons and daughters to know and love Jesus, it doesn’t stop there, but extends to everyone they come in contact with in the classroom or on the job.

If you would like more information on the RLC Men’s ministry or the 2017 Main Event conference, be sure to stop by the Welcome Center and ask for Patrick!

Last Thursday, volunteers from Real Life Church shared a little appreciation for teachers in many city and county schools! RLC provided two dozen Krispy Kreme donuts to many local schools as a way to thank teachers for all they do for students throughout the year. It was a great activity for some little RLCers to serve right alongside their parents (and enjoy a few donuts at the same time!)
