Local Mercy

Just as Christ gave Himself for us, so we should give ourselves up for the sake of others. Below is a list of ways to get involved in local mercy within our community.

 

Rivertree Academy is a Christian independent school located in the Lake Como Community of Fort Worth, Texas. Rivertree Academy exists to serve Christ by educating his children. We believe that children of Rivertree will go on to be agents for change in their communities, and the best way to achieve that goal is to teach them to Learn, Love, Work, and Lead Well. Our students attend on scholarships, because of our many generous partners and donors who make this education possible!

Volunteer Opportunities:

  • After School Buddies – assist in tutoring, homework, and leading clubs
  • Student Mentors – encouragement, support and spiritual guidance for 1st and 2nd graders, provided virtually for now
  • Reading Buddies – read one-on-one with a student
  • Classroom Helpers – assist teachers with lessons, one-on-one time with students, and other organizational tasks
  • Parent University Group Facilitators – assist in the education and support of Rivertree families a few times a month every Spring on topics of parenting, spiritual formation, and racial reconciliation
  • Prayer Partners – commit to praying for our students, staff, and families

The Net addresses sex trafficking and exploitation and supports survivors because everyone is worthy of the chance to rebuild their lives. We serve survivors of trafficking in North Texas through empowering programming fueled by virtuous relationships. Rather than only providing material relief or hand-outs, we restore dignity through community and relationships while providing the support necessary for individuals to become independent and valued members of society.

Volunteer Opportunities:

  • Bring a Meal – provide a meal for survivors of exploitation
  • Shop goods handcrafted by survivors of trafficking at The Worthy Co. (worthy-co.com)
  • MASE Breakfast – education and conversation around the demand for commercial sexual exploitation in our city
  • Raise Awareness – use your voice and influence to create change in our community

For almost 50 years Pregnancy Lifeline has served women and their families in the greater Fort Worth community with free pregnancy tests, sonograms, counseling, adult and children’s classes, and material items such as diapers, formula, baby, children’s and maternity clothing and other related items. All of these needs are provided free of charge thanks to the generous support of community churches, individuals and foundations, aided by a faithful team of volunteers who back up a small but dedicated staff of counselors and nurses. 

There are many ways to get involved with Prgnancy Lifeline’s ministry. In addition to one time and/or on-going financial support, there are various opportunities for individuals, families, small groups, and churches to volunteer as:  

  • Female client advocates, train to meet with women and young girls facing unplanned pregnancies
  • Sonogram nurses, using PLL’s state-of-the-art 4D sonogram machines
  • Male mentors meeting with the babies’ fathers or with the women’s fathers who are struggling to help make life decisions
  • Teachers leading short term bible studies or parenting, nutrition, and ESL classes
  • Office help answering the phones, welcoming clients, filing client records and helping with special projects
  • Personal shoppers in the Blessing Store helping families select needed baby, children’s and women’s clothing and other items
  • Event support for PLL’s annual fundraiser ( Spring 2023 )
  • Store display and help sorting and arranging donations in the Blessing Store
  • Garage sale shoppers – finding gently used clothing and baby items for the Store
  • High school and college student service hours – special projects
  • Note writers, preparing handwritten notes for women coming in for pregnancy tests and sonograms
  • Provide snacks and water bottles for the staff and volunteer break room
  • Encourage or host a diaper, children’s clothing or book drive at your church, neighborhood, small group or bible study
  • Collect large paper bags for helpers to bundle diapers and baby items
  • Prayer support – from the comfort of your home or at the office as staff and volunteers gather at the start of each weekday

If you or your bible study community group would like to schedule a project at the office or arrange for a tour of the facilities, please contact Jeanne Mullen jeanne@pregnancylifeline.net
You can also team up with another Community Group or lead a church-wide project.
