MINISTRY OPPORTUNITIES AT
WOODLAND . . .

 

HOPE MOBILE OUTREACH PROGRAM

hopeSometime those who need the HOPE Center the most are not at the HOPE Center. But they rely on the Mobile Outreach Team for this help. The HOPE Mobile operates from a custom motor home parked at a different downtown church location each weekday. Homeless men, women, and children are able to this program to find the help and hope they need to get back on their feet.

Each Tuesday morning from 7:00 am to 1:00 pm, the HOPE Mobile is parked in the back church lot for those who need their help. Woodland's outreach ministry is to provide sandwiches which consist of bread, meat, and cheese (NO CONDIMENTS) and wrapped individually for easy handout.

Moveable Feast is in need of drivers Monday through Friday, especially Fridays, from 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm to deliver meals. Rev. Dalene Vasbinder and her husband do this once a month. If you are interested in volunteering, see Dalene.

What is Moveable Feast? From their website: "Moveable Feast Lexington prepares and delivers to the door a hot, nutritious meal five days a week to low-income people in Lexington-Fayette County who have HIV/AIDS or those under Hospice care. They also feed their caregivers and dependent children."

Worshipping with at New Life In Christ - New Life in Christ Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) is a congregation inside the Diersen House, a halfway house for women, located in Louisville, Kentucky. Some of the women have been previously incarcerated and the Diersen House is a next step before re-entry back into full society. Some of the women have been sentenced to serve their time not in prison, but in the Diersen House.

Each Tuesday evening, members and pastors from Disciples congregations throughout Kentucky come to join in and lead worship.

Woodland members will be invited to join Dalene when she preaches at the Diersen House. Groups attended worship over the past years and it was a very powerful and humble experience. If you would like to join Dalene, let her know.
