Handy Helpers

Handy Helpers

Handy Helpers is a ministry in which volunteers use their God-given abilities to help those who have needs – in a systematic organized manner. It is both a ministry opportunity for people to use their talents and capabilities for the cause of Christ, and an essential service through which needs are met in the name of Christ.

Workforce… Those who desire to use their skills to serve the Lord, volunteer their time and talents in specific areas of expertise, both men and women.

Users….. Those who need jobs to be done, but lack the capability (expertise and/or resources) to do them. Initially the program will start with single parents, widows/widowers, elderly, other urgent requests that come into the church, and selected non-profit organizations (including the church). Possible growth will be expansion to the whole church and/or to other churches and to the community in general.

Process….. Volunteers sign up in specific areas of expertise (painting, cooking, organizing, landscaping, etc) and indicate how much time they wish to make available as well as when during the week they would like to work. Then when needs are made known, capabilities are matched with requirements and teams (usually two persons) are sent out to do the work at a mutually acceptable time.
