Provide dinner and fellowship for young adults! Each Sunday evening at 6pm, our three young adult Fellows enjoy a community dinner with volunteers on the front porch of their home on the Scarritt Bennett Center campus. Restaurant patios are welcome, too! Volunteers can sign up here.

Support a Family Fun Night! (Group service opportunity!) Twice per semester, we invite the children and families of our programs to our host churches for dinner and fun. We ask church and civic groups to provide meals and participate in the fun! We are in need of meals for 30-40 people (and 3-4 people to serve the meal/ help with games) on Thursday evenings February 24 and April 28 (2022). These events will take place outside when possible. Please email Ashley at if your group is interested in providing a Family Fun Night meal!
