We model the love of Christ by helping the underserved, the disadvantaged, and others broken by life's circumstances. While providing immediate needs such as food, clothing, and shelter, outreach volunteers also offer service, emotional, and spiritual support.

This beautiful Afghan family come to the U.S. as refugees through the Nashville International Center for Empowerment (NICE). A group of caring church members volunteered to shepherd the Haidari family through their transition to a new home and a new culture. For the one-year anniversary of this partnership, everyone gathered together to share their reflections from the last year.
One member reflects fondly, "We started as strangers, and now we are like family. The Haidari family has inspired us all with their incredible grit and graciousness.” Thanks to the wonderful folks at NICE for compiling this video of the gathering. We invite everyone to join us in praying for meaningful ways to serve refugees in the future.
Church in the Yard
St. George’s volunteers are needed to prepare food Saturday morning and to set up worship and serve the meal on Sunday afternoon at Church of the Holy Trinity ( 615 6th Ave. S).
Over and over in the Bible we are called, commanded, and encouraged to serve one another, to consider the interests of others even above our own, and to imitate Jesus, whose life on earth was filled with acts of compassion. In 1 John, the Apostle John writes, “Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth.” Jesus commanded us to love our neighbors as ourselves with an active love. To live more fully into this calling, St. George’s has begun a tradition of regular Mission Days in which we go out as volunteers to serve our community. A sign up form will be posted here closer to the date.
We hope you will explore how you might serve both at St. George’s and with our community partners by clicking one of the buttons below. There are opportunities for all ages and all abilities!
