The Women's Ministry of OMPC offers tons of opportunities for women to to seek grace from God (spiritual growth), share grace in community (connecting with others) and show grace to all (serving and sharing with others). This year we are offering a bunch of new and exciting ways to serve.
Take a look at the service opportunities below and join us! Please contact Mary Branch or Morgan Nordyke for more information.
Foster Care | Angie Hoffman
We are very excited as the Lord moves in hearts to serve in some way within the foster care community. There are several ways to show the love and grace of Christ - full or part-time foster care, transporting foster children to various appointments, birth parent visits, etc., or babysitting within the foster care community.
Hispanic Ministry | Jennifer Beck
The mission of the Hispanic Ministry is to exalt Christ by sharing the Gospel of Grace to the Hispanic Community. Several ministry opportunities are currently available and the "harvest is ripe" for many more! We will begin building relationships with the women of Iglesia La Fe through serving alongside them as they reach out to share the Gospel of Grace to the Hispanic Community through the soccer league, bible clubs, after-school tutoring, bible studies, etc. Also, ESL classes currently meet on Sunday evenings.
International Student Ministry | Jennifer Beck
Four out of five international students come to the U.S. and never enter an American home. The Christian community is missing a significant opportunity to share the love of Christ with the nations without ever leaving Birmingham. International Friendship Partners Program at Samford is a program that pairs an international student with an American volunteer or family with a commitment to spend time together at least once a month.
Literacy Training and Tutoring | Wendy Irwin
Whether it’s helping a child achieve in school or coming alongside of an adult who is struggling, the ability to teach someone to read is a gift that is life changing. OMPC wants to help break the cycle of poverty and crime by providing one-to-one literacy tutoring and helping students and adults become independent readers.
Restoration Academy | Foundations | Mary Branch
Opportunities for service abound in the Fairfield area…tutoring needs from pre-school to high school, reading to children, a community garden, babysitting during parenting classes and a new church plant, Urban Hope.
Discovery Clubs | Jane Judd
There’s a mission field nearby as public schools in our area are inviting us to offer Discovery Clubs! For one fun hour after school children (some who have never heard of a Bible) sing songs, eat snacks and hear the story of “God’s rescue plan.” This is a great opportunity to share the Gospel with those who have never heard.
Alabama Baptist Children’s Home | Jenn Ervin
These transitional shelters for homeless single mothers with children provide several opportunities for ministry. Taking care of children while their moms attend a parenting class, birthday parties for children at the home and showers for the families as they begin their new homes, and mentoring and discipling women during their transition year are some of the ways to be involved.
Sav-A-Life | Shelby, Beth Pruitt
Sav-A-Life offers help and hope to women facing unplanned pregnancies with compassionate care and support, by offering free pregnancy tests and ultrasounds, options information, and prenatal and parenting classes. You can help by praying, volunteering, donating, or participating in any of our events. Needs include diapers, wipes, baby care products, clothing (size 2t and under), and providing a meal for our Earn While You Learn classes.
OMPC Children’s Ministry | Bethany Griffith | Angie Hoffman
There’s a mission field within our walls in the children’s ministry. Volunteer needs include regular teachers and subs, people to pray, and hospitality organization and provision. Get to know and bless our covenant children of all ages.
Lovelady Center | Joie Black
Caring for 400 women and children daily often requires some helping hands. The ministry at Lovelady Center offers a place for women to go to receive practical and spiritual help to live a whole life independently. Volunteer needs include prayer, meeting physical needs and teaching opportunities.
Clerestory (Jobs for Life) | Beth Drennen
Clerestory, through relationship building curricula like Jobs for Life and Faith and Finance, seeks to creatively provide economic development opportunities for individuals in Birmingham. We offer job preparedness training, job placement, small business incubation, business and equipment loans and financial training and savings programs in the context of long term relationships with mentors in the church and community. We can use help from women of all ages who would like to be mentors/friends with women looking to improve their life situations.
Wilsonville | Paula Phillips
Dixieland Tradin' Post seeks believers to share Hope in the Flea Market environment through building relationships with the vendors. This is an opportunity for families to serve together as well. Join Paula Phillips as she trusts God to bring hope and light to the Wilsonville area.
Mustard Seeds | Kristy McKinney
OMPC's ministry to children with special needs and their families is growing to impact our church and community. Children are paired with "buddies" so that they are integrated into the life of the church. Volunteer opportunities are endless as we seek to care for all members of our body.
NorthStar Soccer | Val Peterson
NorthStar Soccer Club provides inner city youth the opportunity for a Christ-centered quality soccer program with an emphasis on discipleship and community building among the families in our program. Volunteer opportunities include skills coach, team coach, administrative and/or sideline help during practices, game day volunteer for younger teams. Soccer experience is NOT required!!! If you are interested in connecting to a team for discipleship, we can pair you with an experienced soccer person!
Moms in Community| Kristin Franklin
MIC delivery teams provide meals and TLC to moms who have just had or adopted a child. This is an opportunity to connect with other women and encourage them.
