outreach & Missions

Before Jesus ascended into heaven, he gave his disciples a simple instruction to go and make disciples.  Jesus also taught that the two most important commandments were to love the Lord with all your heart, mind, soul and strength AND to love your neighbor as yourself. It doesn't get much more simple than that.  

Our focus is on growing disciples as we serve by meeting practical needs and building intentional relationships to share God's love with those in need.  We want to help you connect to the ministry that makes your heart come alive, where your gifts are used fully, and where Jesus is most glorified. Whether sharing the Gospel in the remote villages of Nepal or sorting food in our local food bank, we want to help you connect and go!

ROYAL FAMILY KIDS CLUB

Royal Family Kids Club provides a chance for trained volunteers to confront abuse by providing life changing moments for children in foster and kinship care. After kids have attended our summer camp, they are invited to participate in our Mentors and Club programs. The first Saturday of every month, our team of Royal Family Volunteers holds a Club meeting at Southeast that includes a Bible story, snack, craft and activity.  Mentors and kids get to participate together in the monthly Club, as well as meet off site once a month to continue to grow their relationships. If you want to make a difference in the life a child who has had difficult first years, this could be a fit for you.

WINTER SHELTER NETWORK

The Winter Shelter Network is a network of churches serving the homeless in Douglas County by providing rest, meals and connection during the winter months.  The Winter Shelter Network serves women and children who are in need of temporary shelter during the winter months.  Southeast is honored to be a part of the Winter Shelter Network and will be a host site every Sunday night from November through March.  As a host church, we have the privilege of providing a warm dinner, a safe place to sleep, food to pack lunches for the next day and a simple breakfast before they head out for the day.  In addition to meals and a place to sleep, we have the opportunity to love like Jesus and create space for connection and relationship.  

 

Is it not to share your food with the hungry and to provide the poor wanderer with shelter-

when you see the naked, to clothe them, and not to turn away from your own flesh and blood? ISAIAH 58:7

GET INVOLVED 

WE NEED YOU! In order to provide these services for these deserving women and children, we need over 100 volunteers each month. We encourage families, small groups and individuals to serve with this ministry.  

Volunteer

Each week we need a team of people for many different roles: meals, evening and overnight hosts, a laundry and supply team, and set-up and clean-up crews. You can volunteer once, once a month or every week. Click below to sign up for the nights you want to serve and the role you want to fill!
