Serve by driving all of our supplies for church on Sunday mornings at 5:30 AM! Our 26’ truck is parked 3 miles away at a local church. Drivers do not need a special license, but they are required by insurance to participate in an online training session. We currently have a team of 5 drivers, and are looking to round out the team.
Once the truck arrives, this team takes items off the truck and roll large bins inside the building. Unloaders also help with setting up our welcome signs, lobby area tables, auditorium tables for communion supplies, and set up our children’s check-in stations. This team serves from 6AM to about 7:30AM. We typically have 4-5 people who serve in this role, along with the Technical setup crew and staff.

Do you have a skill that doesn’t match what we have already listed? Maybe it is something related to your work, or perhaps it is a hobby – either way, you see a way to use it to build up the church or serve the congregation. Please let us know! We want to know what other ways you want to serve!

Financial Coaches counsel people about their personal finances including budgeting, debt reduction, how to manage money according to biblical principles, and other financial matters. Volunteers are not financial planners, but rather individuals who seek to help people to honor the Lord no matter what financial circumstance or crisis they might be in.
From time to time, God brings refugees to Loudoun who are in critical need. There are many different ways to serve and bless them including – delivering furniture, serving as an English language conversation partner, meeting for tea/coffee for developing a friendship, providing transportation (driving them to their appointments), and helping them navigate through American culture (registering their children for school; completing medical forms; completing forms at the DMV).

Our church serves residents of Loudoun County who are in need by providing gently used furniture. You can serve by donating gently used sofas, tables and chairs, dressers, nightstands, end tables and lamps. We are a little strict on the condition of the furniture, so please send Matt pictures of your items to see if it is something currently needed and meets our criteria. We also purchase new household items (kitchen and bath items) essential to families getting off to a good start in their new apartment. You can serve by periodically shopping at Walmart from a specific list we provide, and then by taking the items to our storage unit in Leesburg. Also, you can serve by helping pick up donated items or moving items out of storage and into a client’s home. A very flexible schedule is usually required, as the needs arise quickly without much notice. People with flexible work hours during the week are sorely needed, as well as anyone who can help carry an end table, a lamp, a kitchen chair or bags of newly purchased items. You don’t have to be a professional furniture mover to help.
