Family Service Opportunities at Mission Services
At North Park, creating a culture of service is core to our mission of inspiring, supporting, and mobilizing people to live like Jesus. We believe that it is important for people of all ages to engage acts of service, not simply at North Park, but in our city as well.
This year, we want to be more intentional to expose young families with kids to opportunities to serve across our city. We have been a partner with Mission Services for many years, and one area where Mission Services engages our city in a very impactful way is through its Mission Store.
The Mission Store is a thrift store that serves the city on the corner of York and Rectory St. It provides discounted pricing on items of clothing, electronics, books/media, toys/games, footwear, seasonal items, and much more.
Many people serve the Mission Store on a volunteer basis. This winter, we are providing service opportunities for families with kids (young kids to teenagers) to serve the Mission Store through sorting clothes, cleaning racks, hanging items, and whatever other needs the Mission Store may have. Ideally, these teams will be composed of three to four families. This is a fantastic way to be a blessing to the city through Mission Services, and to help build the value of service in your family unit.
