There are many opportunities to become a part of something more – becoming the hands and feet of Jesus to the least of those and to those in need around us.
Take a look at some of our upcoming opportunities.
Angels’ Attic is a volunteer-run White’s Chapel ministry supporting local and global charities through the sale of donated merchandise. Angels’ Attic Upscale Resale, located at 1250 William D. Tate Ave., Suite 350, in Grapevine Towne Center, is open Tuesday through Saturday from 10 to 6. Men and women are needed as volunteers to sort donations and ready them for display, test electronics, pick up and deliver furniture, research prices, repair furniture, display and stage merchandise, and greet and wait on customers. Volunteers may work regular weekly 2 hour shifts or substitute as needed. Volunteer opportunities can be tailored to fit your schedule. Contact Angels’ Attic to schedule volunteer hours, call them at 817-251-9451 or simply show up when you have the time.
Every second and third Monday of each month, we need volunteers to prepare lunch for the families with children who are critically ill at Cook Children’s Medical Hospital in Fort Worth. Approximately 50 people to cook for. The Cooking With Care Team shops for the food and prepares the meals on-site for the parents of critically ill children. You may go every month or every other month and join a team of ladies who share their love and fellowship not only with the parents, but with each other. We need no more than 15 people at a time and the ages able to volunteer are 15 years old and up.
Join us every fourth Thursday of the month as we help serve the homeless through the Agape Meal program at Broadway Baptist Church in Fort Worth. Volunteers meet at White’s Chapel at 4:30 p.m. for a group prayer and to ride on the bus over to Fort Worth. We return no later than 8 p.m. If you’d prefer to meet the group there, please plan to arrive no later than 5:30 p.m. for brief training and an overview of the Agape Meal program. The address for Broadway Baptist Church is 315 W. Broadway Avenue, Fort Worth, TX 76104. Parking is available on the east side of the church in the designated church parking lot. Children are welcome, but we ask that they be five or older to serve. Dress is casual.

August 31 – September 2
This will be an adult mission trip during Labor Day Weekend. The team will be traveling to Tyler, Texas, to work at the Highway 80 Rescue Mission.
Cost is $100 per person and final payment is due August 11. Registration is on-line. This trip is a great way for adults to explore a mission trip and to see if perhaps you would like to participate in another trip for a longer period of time. You don’t have to have any specific skills, just a willing heart.
Ways that you can volunteer to make a difference right here at White’s Chapel.
Opportunities exist for you to volunteer in a broader fashion around the DFW area.
White’s Chapel is more than just a local outreach church. It has opportunities that lie outside of the U.S. as well.
