Every other week, Mountain Brook Baptist sends volunteers to Grantswood Community School to help with reading. Connecting with this ministry is a wonderful way to demonstrate the love of Christ through serving, encouraging, and loving the community at Grantswood School! Contact Meredith Cale (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you can help.
Volunteer to help treat the faculty and staff of Grantswood by cooking (or purchasing) and delivering breakfast on teacher workdays — Wednesday, December 20, Monday, March 12 or Friday, May 25. Sign up online.
Help the GAs and RAs pack bags of food once a month for children at Grantswood. We will be working on the 4th floor in PTs Diner from 4:45-6:30pm. Sign up online or simply come help when you can. You can also sign up to deliver the bags of food to Grantswood on Thursdays throughout the school year.
Spend 30 minutes a week having breakfast with students at Grantswood. Report to the school office between 7:10-7:15am to sign in and get a visitor’s badge. Tell them you are with MBBC then walk across the hall to the cafeteria. There will be school staff on duty who will point you to a table. After getting your food, sit and talk with the students. Talk about yourself, ask questions about them, and just be a friend. You can talk sports, books, you name it. And of course, share your faith when appropriate. Breakfast is $2.25 per person. Men and women are welcome.
Christmas at Grantswood
We are taking the Angel Tree concept and changing it a bit for Grantswood. Instead of filling the wish list for individual children, we are asking Sunday School classes, Bible Study groups, and other groups within the church to adopt families who have been identified by the school staff as needing essentials for the Christmas season. While their wish lists will vary, we anticipate basic household needs such as towels and linens, laundry supplies, food, coats, gloves, pajamas, socks and underwear, etc., plus Nativity story books and a few fun things too. Watch for the Grantswood Christmas Tree in the reception area of the church office.
Bulletin Board Installation
Create and install bulletin boards periodically as requested by Grantswood. They will provide the ideas and examples. Email Sherrie Futch (email@example.com) if you are willing to help.
Help maintain and take care of the raised bed garden MBBC installed on the church-wide service day in September. Email Sherrie Futch (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are willing to help.
