Jesus calls us to love our neighbors. At Liberti, we have several opportunities available to better love our neighbors. Missional opportunities, or MOs, are the best ways for you to show love to our neighbors in Northeast Philadelphia. We have four amazing MOs available to sign-up for, and invite you prayerfully consider which one is the best fit for you. If you have any questions about any of these opportunities, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
TURKISH CULTURAL CENTER bridge team
Saturday or Sunday, 1-2 times per month
You might be interested if: you have interest in Islam, bridge-building between faiths, care for immigrant communities, or interested in evangelism
The TCC Bridge Team would be directly responsible for maintaining a relationship with the Turkish Cultural Center in Northeast Philly with whom Liberti does MBUs. They will meet once-a-month for 1 1/2 hours: spend 45 minutes in prayer and 45 minutes going through an 'Engaging with Islam' course. Members should make a commitment to attend the MBUs regularly (about once per quarter) and will pursue friendships with our Turkish neighbors. Led by Jay Scharfenberg.
Loesche Elementary bridge team
Weeknights, 1 time per month
You might be interested if: interest in education, enjoy working with children, care for immigrant communities, or interested in outreach
William Loesche Elementary School hosts over 900 students from the Northeast Philadelphia area. Principal Kurian and her staff and faculty work diligently to maintain the operations of the school and provide a top quality education in their classrooms. Liberti has started a relationship with the school, and the Loesche Bridge Team would be responsible for maintaining it through volunteering at Back To School Nights and developing and executing a service project at the school once-a-year. Email email@example.com with questions.
GROW ESL (Bustleton)
Mondays or Wednesday mornings, 1-4 times per month
You might be interested if: interest in education, care for immigrant communities, interested in outreach, or are a stay-at-home mom
GROW Northeast is proud to serve Northeast Philly’s growing international community through a fun and effective ESL program for adults, helping our neighbors and friends to become more proficient in the English language, and be prepared for U.S. citizenship. Teachers, teacher assistants, and childcare workers are needed. Volunteers typically serve once-a-week for the duration of the school year (September through May). However, there is flexibility for a teacher to volunteer more or less frequently. Led by GROW ESL.
RECOVERY Men’s Bible Study
Mondays 1-2pm, 2-4 times per month*
You might be interested if: desire to disciple others, care about men coming out of addiction, interest in studying the Bible, or have a flexible lunch break
The opioid crisis has hit an all-time high in Philadelphia. Alcohol and drug abuse have become addictions that destroy the lives of many. The best way for us to love those coming out of alcohol and drug abuse is by sharing the gospel with them. The Recovery Men’s Bible Study meets once-a-week on Mondays and is looking for men who’d be willing to volunteer their lunch hours to put God’s Word in front of men in recovery at a local recovery center. Those involved would attend and eventually lead the Bible study after some training. Led by Jay Scharfenberg.
