National Service Volunteer Opportunities

We take Southminster’s service beyond Arlington Heights’ borders. We volunteer with Chicago groups like Kidz Korna, which works against youth violence and child abuse, and Starfish, which offers children homework help, recreation, art projects and moral teaching.

We travelled to Washington, Ill., to help the town recover from its tornado, to Florida to deliver relief, and to New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina.

None of this can happen without people like you. Let us know how we can help you help others.

International Service Volunteer Opportunities

Southminster sends people, dollars, food, aid kits – even shoes – around the globe:

  • Several of us have joined medical teams as nurses that flew to Guatemala to perform free surgeries.
  • Some at Southminster have come up with their own ideas for a mission trip. We gave them grants to make it happen. They have traveled to Uganda, the Dominican Republic, and elsewhere.
  • We assemble rice-and-bean packs for Feed My Starving Children.
  • We make hygiene kits for Church World Service.
  • Our Share Your Soles shoe drive collects over 300 pairs every year.

What kind of volunteering calls to you? We’d like to hear your ideas and have you join us.
