Volunteer

Novo Bible Clubs are about to resume and we are excited about reconnecting with the boys and girls at our program sites. No doubt, they’ve experienced many changes over the summer – from growing a little taller to moving to getting a new baby brother or sister. But the kids aren’t the only ones who’ve had changes, so have our volunteers!

Julie’s work schedule changed.
Mark’s family grew.
Kara transferred schools.
Andrea’s daughter had a stroke.
Chad got a new job.

Because change in life is inevitable, some of our wonderful volunteers have had to take a break this year. With our great need and limited volunteer teams, even just one person leaving can affect whether or not having a Novo Bible Club in neighborhoods where we’ve been for years is even possible.

Will you take their places? Have changes in your life freed up one afternoon or evening a week to make a difference for Oklahoma City’s inner-city children? Can you commit to one year or beyond of inner-city outreach to the precious children who call these communities “home”?

“This is an opportunity to make a change in lives that will be a long term solution. . . . If you have time to invest in a child, it will be worth it.”
Miss Sherry, current Novo Bible Club volunteer

“I like helping the children see there is another answer. Someone does care about them. They don’t have to stick with one way of life. You can stay in school and go to college and accomplish your dream.”
