Update: just got a link for a ministry map

Since Mission begins at home, here is a partial list of areas you can investigate for involvement if the Holy Spirit is leading you:

Caring Ministry

Food Pantry
Help us keep our food pantry organized and food bags prepared for people in our community who are hungry. The food pantry is located in the Annex. Watch for announcements in Life Together about what foods are needed for the month. A collection cart is located near the Welcome Center where donations can be delivered.

Harvest Sunday
Harvest Sunday is a special time for our family. Volunteer to help in contacting schools, arranging for food pick up, and other administrative details . Time frame is November 1 – Thanksgiving.

Little Red School House
Each year we serve the children in our community by providing them with basic school supplies at the beginning of the school year. Members of our congregation purchase and bring paper, glue, scissors, backpacks, and more to the “Little Red School House” located in the lobby.

We need your help to contact schools, organize the supplies, and help with scheduling a time to pick up the supplies. Time frame is July – August

CCSI Christian Community Services, Inc.

CCSI inspires underserved families to achieve quality lives and build a legacy of self-sufficiency. Our mission is to empower underserved families, through mentoring relationships, to achieve a legacy of social, spiritual, and economic self-sufficiency. To support the whole family, we provide guidance, homework assistance, and encouragement as well as providing financial management classes and counseling, life skills classes, and family mentoring. We promote asset-building by providing matching funds for Individual Development Accounts (IDA’s) and provide homeownership education and counseling.

Adopt A Metro School Class
Woodmont Hills supports several teachers and administrators in local schools whose students cannot afford their basic school supplies and clothing. Support includes: volunteer as a teacher’s aide, provide supplies/uniforms, provide snacks or “breakfast box”, food bags at holidays. We connect individuals and small groups with schools, age groups, etc. You can set your own schedule, actually volunteering in the classroom or simply meeting the needs of a particular class as they arise. It’s a great small group project and the more you get to know the teachers and students, the more opportunities arise.

Paragon Mills Elementary – Parent’s Profit Program
Several groups at Woodmont have been meeting children’s needs at PME by donating uniforms, school supplies, food boxes, and other items. The school is now using those donations to begin a program for the parents where they can “earn” the donated items, rather than just receiving a handout. Anytime a parent volunteers at school or participates in the many family programs offered at PME, they receive a “Community Cash Buck” which they can “spend” at the store. Volunteers from Woodmont will be hosting, “selling” donated uniforms, school supplies, shoes, coats, Angel Food boxes, and more. We are always looking for volunteers and donated items.

Room in the Inn
Room in the Inn is an outreach ministry to homeless men in the Nashville area. We strive to meet the basic human needs of food, shelter, clothing (Matt. 25:35-36). The program begins in November and runs through the end of March. Each Monday evening we pick up 12-13 men in our church van from the Center for Human Development on 8th Avenue and bring them to our building for the night. During their stay with us, our guests are given two hot meals, shower facilities, laundry facilities, and clothes. We also present a short devotional and make ourselves available to meet their spiritual needs as well. This is a great opportunity to serve and have a direct influence in someone’s life
