Community

Performing community service is a worthy endeavor that brings people and communities closer together and improves the wellness of those volunteering their time and effort.  Volunteer your time and effort with one or more of these community service ideas.

  • alpha

    Alpha is a series of eleven interactive sessions that freely explore the basics of the Christian faith in a friendly and honest environment. No pressure. No charge. No follow up. Alpha runs in churches, homes, coffee shops and bars all around the globe. Typically, Alpha includes food, a short talk and a time for discussion where guests can share their thoughts. It covers topics such as, "Who is Jesus?", "Why and how do I pray?", and "How can I resist evil?"  


    Alpha hosts and helpers are designed to function more as facilitators than teachers or leaders. Alpha guests are made to feel welcome and at ease in a safe, explorative environment.


    A course will be held in 2019. Questions about the course are welcome. Clink on the link www.alpha.org to explore the site or email the course leaders, Sam and Lois DiBlasio. Sam DiBlasio at diblasiosam@gmail.com or Lo DiBlasio at lodiblasio@gmail.com

  • Good News Club

    Good News Club is an after school club founded by Child Evangelism Fellowship and has Bible lessons, prayers and where Christ’s love transforms all! It is held from October to April during the school year and follows all school breaks. It is held at schools that invite the club to be there and there is a hunger and desire that more schools would like to have this club at their school and is led by volunteers who do everything from crafts and snacks to leading singing and teaching the lesson/story all in one hour. Teachers from the local schools are encouraged to participate on the team. It’s a wonderful way to touch a child and help them learn about the love of Jesus. Indian River City Church is leading two clubs and there are others led by other churches in our community. The ones we’re leading are at Imperial Estates Elementary and the second is a restart at Coquina Elementary in January 2019. There was a club at Coquina from 2012 – 2017 and it’s being reestablished. Please contact Christine Luecking at christineluecking@yahoo.com if you are interested in assisting at either club or helping start one in another elementary school.
