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
Spring of Life/Habitat for Humanity has started construction of our next house in Des Plaines after several delays due to permitting issues. This is our first new build since 2008 and is the 14th house for the partnership. We are currently in the process of framing and will be trying to get the exterior closed up by mid-November when the cold weather comes. We are in need of volunteers at all skill levels.
Southminster workdays are the following Saturdays 8:00 a.m. to approximately 2:00 p.m.
November 11 and 25
December 9 and 23
Lunch is provided. If you are interested, please email Tom Snyder at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
