Student Service Opportunities


Project 52

P52 is a ministry that seeks to serve individuals or families who are socio-economically challenged due to financial crisis, natural disaster, physical disability, and emotional distress including widows, the elderly, and those living below the Poverty line. They do this by organizing at least one work project every week. You can ask about joining in with these projects yourself, with a few friends, or it’s a great opportunity for teams or halls to serve together.

GLAD/New City Fellowship

GLAD is New City Fellowship Glenwood's after school tutoring program. If you're looking for a way to serve with kids in our community, become a tutor at GLAD Monday through Thursday from 3:15 - 5:15 during the school year. Help feed kids a meal, work with them on their homework, and spend time playing with and loving them. If you can commit for a semester, that's really great, but they are eager for volunteers who can even come just one or two days a week. GLAD also has summer programs you can ask about.
