Service Opportunities

Partner with our high school ministry The Edge as we serve the elderly at Providence Life Services. We visit the residence there to play games, eat cookies, sing and socialize.

See what God's doing at By the Hand.  They literally and figuratively take kids by the hand and walk alongside them from the time they enroll in our program until they are walking independently as well adjusted, responsible adults.  Tudor or mentor students.

Get involved with a great ministry serving 60 countries around the world, truly offering hope to the hungry with "Feed My Starving Children". Our student ministries have gotten involved and have seen the many blessings it brings to us and the many people we ultimately serve all over the world.

Looking for an opportunity to make a difference in the West Side of Chicago?  Lampstand Ministries meets the needs of those in Chicago, the housing projects, and anyone else they come in contact with.  Set up a time to serve!  

Check out "All God's Children". Join us in helping the orphanage in Honduras called Hogar de Ninos Nazareth and touch the lives of the many children who reside there. 

Help serve "Bridge Communities".
