The Neighborhood Mission Team is dedicated to identifying ways that church members can be involved with our neighbors, whether by donating items for the students at Hope Valley Elementary and Githens Middle school or by spending time with neighborhood kids.

To be able to volunteer in the local schools, you must complete the Durham public schools volunteer clearance form. Everyone is encouraged to complete the form. It’s quick, and the approval is good for two years.

Here are some ways you can get involved now:
