In addition to our Missions ministry, Spring Hill is dedicated to making a difference in our local community by reaching out directly to those in need and partnering with other organizations. Please watch our event listing for additional opportunities to get involved right here at home.
Our worship ministry is focused on providing an atmosphere that opens people's hearts to receiving God's Word every week. This includes singers, musicians, greeters, site setup crews, and media technicians. Contact: email@example.com
Our group consists of individuals who have been involved in the adoption process or foster care system in a variety of ways and individuals who just have a heart for children who are orphaned. Our heart’s desire is to express Christ’s love to all individuals whose lives have been touched by the foster care system or through orphanages. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
On the 1st Tuesday of each month, September through June, Spring Hill offers a program of devotional and prayer, crafts, and refreshments for the seniors who attend day care at the Greene County Library. Volunteers are always welcome for this monthly event, which begins at 10 a.m. and lasts for about an hour. For more info, contact Mary at 973-7473 or email@example.com.
One of the simplest ways to make a difference is to volunteer your time by tutoring a child. Each month we meet at Agnor Hurt Elementary School on a Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Volunteers are always welcome. If you are interested, please contact Christine, and watch our events for upcoming dates.
Spring Hill supports our local community by providing resources and support to several area organizations.
GRACE (Greene Alliance for Church and Community Efforts), a 501c3 non-profit organization, is the main benevolence arm through which the churches of Greene County help those in need. In addition to volunteer help, there are ongoing needs for furniture, appliances, basic everyday staples and funds.
AIM (Alliance for Interfaith Ministries) provides emergency assistance to families in Albemarle threatened with homelessness, loss of power or fuel, or other temporary financial crisis. Helping a family stay in their residence is of paramount importance to AIM. Roughly 95% of the clients referred to AIM are families living below the poverty line. When an emergency occurs, these families have nowhere to turn for assistance.
Tuesday's Table is a partnership of churches throughout the Greene community. Every Tuesday a hot meal is served to those in need of food, companionship or fellowship at Stanardsville United Methodist Church. We are always in need volunteers to cook, serve and clean up. Spring Hill provides the meal on the second Tuesday of the months of January, March, May, July, September, and November. If you or your small group or ministry would like to take the lead on this meal, contact Mary Buckner. Volunteers are always needed and welcomed.
