Southminster’s Mission Team strives to educate and motivate the congregation to reach out in the name of Jesus Christ, by becoming involved in a variety of mission efforts through the Presbyterian Church (USA) and other worthwhile agencies.
We have service projects throughout the year that help both locally within Arlington Heights and nationally and internationally.
Local Serving Opportunities
Spring of Life Habitat Partnership
Southminster volunteers have been building homes for qualified families since 1996. The Spring of Life Partnership welcomes men and women of all ages (16+) and walks of life, including church and synagogue members, employees of businesses, civic groups, high school / college students, retirees, friends and relatives.
Building homes requires help with different areas of construction. We depend on volunteers to work on every phase of home building from start to finish, from complex building tasks like carpentry and roofing, to simple tasks like carrying supplies and cleanup.
Maybe you’ve never held a hammer… have a little weekend project experience… or maybe you’re a highly skilled trades professional… We need and welcome your help no matter what level of skill.
Unskilled volunteers are guided by construction managers and instructed by construction crew leaders or other skilled volunteers. Skilled volunteers are also always appreciated for the talents they share to make sure that our affordable homes meet quality standards.
Southminster’s scheduled work days for 2017 are yet to be announced. Check this page in the upcoming months for more information on how you can serve Spring of Life Partnership.
