LOS ALISOS TUTORING

“But Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.” Luke 18:17

Fall 2017 Session
September 30-November 4 (no session October 21)
Saturday Mornings | 9:30am-12:00 PM at Los Alisos Intermediat

We want to be a church that doesn’t just take up space, but gives back to the space and city we are doing life in. We currently meet at Los Alisos Intermediate School and no better way to love the school where we do church than by hanging out and loving on the kids of the school. We believe this is more than tutoring in math, but growing and bringing up children to hopefully one-day experience the love of the Father and be a part of His Kingdom.

WHAT DOES SERVING IN THIS PARTNERSHIP LOOK LIKE?
Volunteers who serve with the Los Alisos partnership serve at our Saturday tutoring program called Los Alisos Connections. There are 3 sessions throughout the year. We meet at Los Alisos from 9:30am-12:00pm every Saturday during the 6-8 week sessions and help tutor the Junior High students in all subjects. You don’t have to tutor in all subjects to volunteer! Just one is fine. If you speak Spanish, we desperately need Spanish-speaking tutors. The first session starts in September or October, with a break over December. The second session will start in January ending in March and the final session will start in May ending in June. We ask that you come to as many of the Saturdays during that session as possible so we can build relationships and trust with these students. But we understand the commitment and ask that you make as many as you can! You can also can jump in mid-session. We have been partnering with the school for 3 years now and have seen major improvements in grades and confidence level of these students.

Child Friendly: Only junior high and older if they feel comfortable tutoring a peer.

MEALS ON WHEELS

“In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’” Acts 20:35

Wednesday, Thursday and Friday | 10:30am-12:30pm

Our hope is to serve those who are isolated, lonely, depressed, or simply homebound by bringing food, prayer and love. So many of the seniors don’t have visitors and we get a chance to be Jesus by bringing them meals but more importantly the Love of the Father.

6th Annual Soup Exchange.

Every year we get the privilege of making homemade soup for the seniors we serve in the Meals on Wheels ministry. This is such a wonderful way to have your family get involved with serving.

Each family will make 6 quarts of soup. You will be supplied with a soup recipe and containers. You can make it at home with your family OR there are seniors who LOVE to invite you to their home to make soup “with” them!! You’ll return your soup to church. It will get divided up so we can deliver 6 different homemade soups on the Serve Day.

Soup Sign up – Oct 22nd & Oct 29th
Return Soup – Nov 5th & 12th
Deliver Soup to our seniors – Saturday Nov 18th

Please join us as we step out to love the least of these in our community.

Feel free to contact Sharon Genton (949) 278-8154 or visit the Love Others table on Sundays.

Currently, our participation in the Meals on Wheels program is Wednesday, Thursday and Friday. 10:30am-12:30pm. Drivers are on a once a month rotation. You get to drive with a partner from RHMV and all the food is picked up from the Norman Murray Center in Mission Viejo. You can also split the route and get it done on your lunch break! If you are unable to drive you can also sign up to meet with a Senior 1 on 1 through our relationship program. We also have multiple Meals on Wheels serve days throughout the year where we visit a senior and bring a small card or gift.

Child Friendly: This is a great partnership to bring your children along – the seniors love visiting with them!

Right now, we particularly need drivers. To get involved with the Meals on Wheels partnership in any way, contact Kendall Rodriguez.


GO TEAM

“Then the eleven disciples went to Galilee, to the mountain where Jesus had told them to go. When they saw him, they worshiped him; but some doubted. Then Jesus came to them and said, “All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” Matthew 28:16-20

Living out the Gospel always involves faith that is in motion. We believe all of our partnerships are a way to not only serve people but ultimately tell them about Jesus and the hope and salvation that He brings. The Go team gets the unique opportunity to do that once a month in a different setting.

WHAT DOES SERVING IN THIS PARTNERSHIP LOOK LIKE?

They will meet together rest to pray and worship. Then they will arrive at a pre-selected location and get a chance to pray for people and share the love of Jesus. His love for us compels us to bring others into His story.

Child Friendly: Yes. We believe there is no Junior Holy Spirit and children are just as able to pray for people and share the love of Jesus as adults.
