"For it is all for your sake, so that as grace extends to more and more people it may increase thanksgiving, to the glory of God." — 2 Cor. 4:15

Ways to Serve in La Mirada

Each of us in this body have been given so much grace! The Scriptures remind us to be good stewards of this grace. There are several ways that you can steward the grace you have been given through service to this body. Please prayerfully consider these opportunities listed below and see how God might want to use you and these opportunities to fulfill the goals of His grace among us.

“As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace: whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies – in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.” 1 Peter 4:10-11

Drivers: We need drivers available for a monthly rotation on Thursdays from 9:30 a.m.-1:30 p.m. Drivers that are willing to be on call as a substitute for Target pickups on varying days are also needed, as well as drivers to take over a weekly pickup on Tuesday or Friday, once or twice a month. Driving also involves lifting medium weight boxes.

Volunteers: We always need volunteers to minister on Fridays. Our official time is from 4:00-6:00 pm, but we are usually there from 3:30-7:30 pm. If you are unable to come when we begin, we would love to have a group that arrives later and is willing to stay until 7:00-7:30 pm. At 6:00 pm, some volunteers need to leave and there are still those patiently waiting to be served. Assistance with the clean-up process is also welcome.
Please contact foodbankleaders@graceevfree.org or call Joe Grossman at (562) 335-0411.
