West Market Church offers many opportunities for donations of your time or financial gifts that may not always be found on our EVENTS page. If you are looking for meaningful ways to give monetarily or of your time all to glorify God, check here for current opportunities.
The shelter will open at 5:30 pm on Monday, December 17, 2018 for each evening until April 1.
Our church will be hosting 15 men who are experiencing homelessness during the winter months, as an extension of Weaver House at GUM. We provide a bed, 3 meals, and support and friendship to our residents. Volunteers are needed to join our other partner churches to bring a hot meal in the evening, register the men or be an overnight volunteer (if you are a male).
Lunch buddies are needed for approximately 1 hour weekly, biweekly or monthly - you can choose your schedule. You will be placed with 1-2 children so that a relationship can be established.
To register to be a lunch buddy go to http://www.gcsnc.com. Under the "Connect with GCS" tab select Volunteers. Then complete the registration. You will receive an email or phone call when you are cleared to start.
CROP Hunger Walks have ensured that more people worldwide have access to nutritious, sustainable food sources. From combating droughts in Nicaragua to providing agricultural training in Indonesia to stocking shelves in hundreds of food pantries across the United States, CROP Hunger Walks help end hunger by raising funds to support local food programs and the international anti-hunger work of Church World Service.
