Even if you’ve volunteered before, we still need you to attend one of the two sessions. Please email Jackie to register or ask any questions you may have about volunteering in CM! 

Ladies’ Game Night - August 24: Calling all ladies to attend a night you do not want to miss. Saturday, August 24, 7-10pm: GAME NIGHT hosted by Laura Icardi and Jenni Smith. Tons of games, snacks, drinks and guaranteed fun! We want this to be collaborative, so if you have games you want to play, or games to lead, or snacks you would love to share, just RSVP to women@redeemerarlington.com. You will receive an email with ideas for contributions, including blank options for YOU to fill in. All ladies welcome, with or without games/snacks, so RSVP either way so we can plan!

Volunteer Needs

Children’s Ministry: FINALLY call!  Soon (Sunday, September 1) we will launch our new 2019-2020 CM year! Currently, we are 10 volunteers short of a full roster which means the first, second, and fourth week would be required to turn away any kiddo because of lacking safety ratios! Email Jackie to find out which classes the needs are! Note: you must be a member in order to be a CM volunteer.

ESL Fall Semester: We are excited to start up ESL classes on Monday, Sept 16! Students come from around the world and are simply trying to make a better life here in the United States. It's a great way to carry out the command to love your neighbor. Here are some opportunities to serve: 1) Registration, Sept 6 (Friday night) and Sept 7 (Saturday morning). 2) Snacks. Once classes begin, we would love for community groups or willing members to help provide snacks on Monday nights. Buy (reimbursed by Redeemer!) and bring snacks. Set up. Stay to chat with students at the break (which students love, by the way). Clean up. And 3) Set up. Classes are on Monday and Thursday nights starting at 7 PM. It would be really helpful if someone could come at 6 (ish) to set up 2 classrooms. For snacks or set up - even just doing it on one night is a big help! Contact Buck Black for more details.
