We need individuals and groups to help pre-prepare the food during the week of each event, and to deliver the meals on the designated days. (OPEN TO VOLUNTEER GROUPS)

Instructor – GED & Literacy

Volunteers are needed to help residents improve or gain reading skills, and to obtain their GED.

Intercessory Prayer Team

Prayer is one of the pillars that supports the Rescue Mission. This team serves as “prayer warriors” for the ministry, our residents, and the staff.  The team receives weekly, confidential prayer requests, via email, to lift up in prayer and periodically conducts Prayer Walks on the Mission’s campus.

Kitchen Meal Prep

We are serving more people than ever at the Mission and need extra hands to help prepare meals. Tasks may range from chopping, mixing, stirring, cooking, baking, and other cooking needs. Kitchen volunteers also assist in stocking the pantry with donated items.

Mentors

Mentors fill a critical role for the men and women in our life recovery program who are learning what it looks like to walk with Jesus Christ. Mentors are paired with residents during the last phase of the program meeting weekly to provide a caring ear, further biblical guidance, and compassionate encouragement as they begin to transition from the program back to their families and communities.

Recreation & Activities

Plan and conduct recreation activities for the residents to include sports, movie nights, concerts, campus picnics, fishing parties, campfire Bible study,  bingo nights, book clubs, birthday parties, etc.

Social Media Team

We need volunteers with strong experience using Facebook and Instagram to help the Mission make the most of our social media presence and activities.

Special Events

Help with the planning and/or day-of-event activities for the Mission’s annual golf tournament, graduation celebrations, holidays, and other events.

Thrift Store Ministry

The Thrift Ministry plays a vital role in helping fund the Mission’s life-recovery program.  We need individuals and groups to help with receiving, sorting, and pricing donations, and to stock and organize the sales floors.  We also need volunteers skilled in creating merchandise displays. (OPEN TO VOLUNTEER GROUPS)

Transportation Team

Transportation for both the men’s and women’s divisions is a huge need at the Mission. This team drives residents to weekly Celebrate Recovery events, group outings, and to doctor appointments, interviews, and other activities. By driving a Rescue Mission van, volunteers not only provide transportation, but also have an opportunity to share the love of Christ, build relationships, provide encouragement, offer prayer, and be a listening ear along the way.

Words of Hope

We invite individuals and groups to write cards or letters with encouraging messages or scriptures for the men, women, and children residing at the Mission, and to place on the Breadline and Holiday Meal boxes.  These messages should be delivered or mailed to Pattie Stevenson at 6601 Zebulon Road, Macon 31220.  Please DO NOT seal these messages.
