Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it. – I Corinthians 12:27

Each person in our church has different gifts, skills, interests, and experiences. And just like our bodies need every part to function properly, the body of Christ needs every person to plug in and and be a part of it.

 

Current Volunteer Needs

Embrace Church

On the first Monday of every month Embrace prepares a community meal for underprivileged folks and has a worship service after. During the summer their support decreases, but the needs never decrease. They need volunteers for June 27, July 11, July 25, and August 22. You would meet at FAC at 4:30 pm and get back around 8:00 pm. If you, your small group, or family would like to volunteer, email Laura McGarvey at laura.mcgarvey@asburyseminary.edu and indicate which date(s) you would like to help.

Refugee Family Support

These past few years we have all heard so much about the refugee crisis. When we listen to the news, it can seem like an overwhelming problem. But God knows and sees each and every one of these refugees, and He knows their names. In the next few months, we at First Alliance will have a chance to learn some of their names as well. Our church will be sponsoring a family, supporting them through their transition to Lexington, developing relationships with them, and helping them to get settled and begin a new life in Kentucky. Our church will help to make their transition to Lexington as smooth as possible, to prepare a home for them, and to stand alongside this family as they adjust to life in a new culture. We will give them a place to stop running: Our community will support this family by covering the costs for an apartment and utilities for their first three months in Lexington. We will give them a place to really live: Together we will come up with donations or purchases of beds, sofas, tables, chairs, lamps, and dressers. Then we’ll fill their home with sheets and blankets, towels, dishes, pots and pans, and appliances. Finally, we will give them a place to love: We’ll hang curtains, put pictures on the walls, bedspreads on beds, and add little touches to make their home beautiful. But providing materially is only half of the picture. We will also be there for them, showing them the love of Christ, and standing by their side as they adjust to life in a new culture.

  • We will be there to meet them at the airport to welcome them when they first arrive.
  • We will be there to help teach them English and learn about our culture.
  • We will be there to give them rides to the grocery store, to doctors appointments, and to help them find their bearings in a new city.
  • We will be there to help them become self-sufficient as they look for employment.
