Serving Clinic 2013

Location:  Trinity School Gym
Start Date:  2013-09-28
End Date:  2013-09-28


So many of us spend time thinking of ways of becoming the arms and legs of Jesus and in the end our thoughts, simply remain thoughts.    We ask ourselves what is an achievable goal in which I can serve Jesus within my own community.  How can I spread the word of Jesus?  Today, we are pleased to share with you an exceptional opportunity to turn your thoughts into actions; becoming the arms and legs of Jesus…………..sharing his Word within our Community.
 
We are pleased to announce Trinity, Burr Ridge will be hosting a Serving Clinic on Saturday, September 28, 2013.  What is the Serving Clinic?  The Clinic is a way in which the members of Trinity and the community at large, can provide goods and services to folks within the community and neighboring communities who are experiencing financially difficult times. If the appropriate volunteers step forward, the Clinic can provide, healing prayer, medical evaluation, dental evaluation, vision screening,  family pictures, haircuts, manicures, as well as, toiletries and books/crafts for the children.  We will offer those in attendance, participants and volunteers, a light breakfast and/or lunch.
 
The clinic can only be successful in reaching those in need with the help of many.  There are a variety of ways in which you can serve as follows:
 
  • Asking your doctor, optical professional, dentist or nurse practitioner if he/she is interested in volunteering (letters asking for help will be provided).
  • Asking your hairstylist or manicurist if he/she would like to donate a few hours.
  • You may be a Doctor, optical professional, Dentist or Nurse Practitioner, or Hairstylist looking to volunteer
  • Volunteer to lead one of the areas of the Clinic (Store, Prayer Room, Children's Crafts, Lunch, etc)).
  • Help set up, take down and clean up
  • If cooking is your strength, you may wish to help serve breakfast or lunch
  • If you are a people person, greeting folds, and escorting them through the process may be suitable for you (Advocate)
  • Work in the store, passing out toiletries
  • Become a prayer partner in the prayer room
  • Security
  • Check-in Station
  • Communications, Advertising
  • Financial Donations
  • Children's Books Donations
  • Toiletry Donations
If this article has ignited a fire within you to turn your thoughts into action following in the footsteps of Jesus, please plan to attend an informational meeting (date has yet to be determined) in between services in the Church library.  We look forward to seeing you and answering all of your questions then!
His Peace and Blessings to You,
