Faithfully, volunteers come to the ministry of NECM to facilitate ministry to our community and are part of the hands and feet of Jesus Christ to provide for those we serve. Volunteers are utilized greatly and are the lifeblood of our organization. We depend so heavily upon them to provide for all our programs and services to those in need.
NECM offers a variety of opportunities for people to get involved with the community. We are always on the lookout for those who want to lend a helping hand, as volunteer spots are constantly needing to be filled. Please call Laura or PJ at 454-1097 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org, if you are interested in helping out!
