Holiday Opportunities

Agape Development Christmas Store!

The Christmas store is a chance for our neighbors to have a choice in what gifts their children receive. Toys are donated, then we sell them at a deeply discounted price.

Donate: giftlist.agapedevelopment.org or email for a gift list and have fun shopping!

Volunteer: signup.agapedevelopment.org - Help to sort & price gifts, set up and serve dinner, or with childcare.

Parents are able to save and ensure that each child receives a gift on Christmas morning. All proceeds and remaining toys are donated to the local DAV thrift store.

Getting Ahead: Meets weekly, Tuesday, 6:30pm-8:30pm, Twice a month commitment.

BBC Reading Assistant

Join us for BBC 2021-2022! The goal of the afterschool program is to provide K-5th grade children with appropriate, nurturing, and consistent adult attention in a structured and engaging environment. Volunteers are needed on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 4:00-5:30pm to help improve a child's reading level. Some of that time will be helping the children complete their homework in small groups, some of the time will be working either one-on-one or in small groups (2-4 children) on literacy activities. This could be a game, writing a poem or story, reading, or some other activity. This is a weekly commitment. We are following COVID protocols, but volunteers will be in close proximity with a child during this time. Masks are required and we have hand sanitizer easily available for use.

Weekly Friday Opportunities

As Agape Development has grown, so has our property upkeep needs! You can help us out by weeding, mowing, weed eating, or washing vans. Other tasks may be added as needed.

Sign up today!

Lot/Proporty Mowing

Help us keep our properties and vacant lots looking clean! As Agape Development has grown, so has the need to keep our properties mowed and weedeated. Volunteer to help us mow on a bi-weekly basis.

The Field Teen Program Assistant

The Field is a teen discipleship program that will introduce The Gospel and how it intersects in life. The Field will encourage the celebration of life's accomplishments together, observe traditions together, and rejoice together when God answers our prayers. Volunteer the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays of the month from 4:00pm-6:30pm to assist with keeping teens focused, encouraging discussion and thoughtful processing of the lesson, and assisting where needed.

Alternative Ways To Get Involved

Prayer Walk Lunch and Snacks

Every other Tuesday the Ministry staff walk the neighborhood and talk to our neighbors. Staff see how families are doing, what is happening in their lives at the moment, and ask for prayer requests. Many of our neighborhood residents have suffered income loss due to COVID-19 restrictions. We would like to be able to provide a meal to these families as we visit and minister with them each week.

Snacks

Snacks are provided to both the children and teens during program time. Snacks can be delivered in person or sent to the office via Amazon.

Trade/Skilled Services

Donate your services as an electrician, plumber, exterminator, painter, handyman, or carpet installer for one of the facilities or Gateway homes.

Group Projects

Although we try to complete our group projects on the work days, we occasionally have one-off projects that need to be completed. Please email for more information and project availability.

Program Speaker

Program Speaker We'd love for you to share your expertise and hobbies with our program participants. What are you knowledgeable on that would benefit our neighbors or provide a new experience for them? Can you share about nutrition? How to apply for college? What is work etiquette and why is it important? *This could potentially be done in-person with COVID protocols in place.

Program Meals

Providing a meal during programs offers a time for neighbors and staff to share and build a relationship. It also eliminates another obstacle for parents. *Number of meals needed and days needed vary depending on program & season.
