Opportunities to Serve through Sparks
Sparks of Hope ministry is making a difference every day for the recovery community. If you aren’t familiar with Sparks, you might be surprised at everything this little ministry encompasses. Sparks began in 2017 with a handful of HUMC members coming together to brainstorm our response to the crisis of addiction in the community. That committee launched a three-pronged mission: recovery support center, family support group, and faith community coalition.
As Christians, we are called to be the hands and feet of Christ. We are called to serve. There are so many ways to serve others through the Sparks of Hope ministry :
Faith Leader Coalition - This is an ecumenical group with representation from about a dozen churches local churches. This group is comprised of both clergy and lay persons. If you are a person of faith, and you are concerned for people in recovery, you are perfect for the coalition! The mission of the coalition is to promote awareness and education surrounding addiction and recovery. This group meets on the first Wednesday of each month at Sparks. Join us and find a new way to serve!
Recovery Support Center - Sparks is open five times a week (totaling 24 hours each week) as a safe and sober place for people in recovery. We need a minimum of two volunteers whenever the center is open. The center has a critical need for new volunteers. Any amount of time you can give is greatly needed and appreciated. Volunteers are appropriately trained and paired with a veteran volunteer. If you have a heart for people trying desperately to make their life better, volunteering at Sparks may be right for you. At Sparks, we make a difference one person at a time.
