The Jonathan Project

Meets the third Friday, every other month, 6:00-8:30pm
(2019 Dates: February 15, April 19, June 21, August 16, October 18, December 20)

The Jonathan Project is a bi-monthly ministry for adults with multiple disabilities. On the third Friday of every other month, a home-cooked meal is prepared by ministry team members and served to residents from eight group homes as well as approximately ten individuals with intellectual disabilities, who come with a family member. After dinner, participants join in a time of praise and worship, listen to a simple lesson with a spiritual application and engage in a hands-on activity.

The ministry team has volunteers, ranging in age from 10 to 74 years old, who cook, set up, clean-up, push wheelchairs, feed people and give lots of love. Each event is unique and entertaining for our guests with themes that include holiday themes and the Springcreek Church version of Special Olympics and "Everybody's Birthday Party" celebrated once each year with pizza, cake, gifts, dancing and lots of fun!

The Jonathan Project is looking for more volunteers to help serve this community on event nights from 6:00-8:30pm.  Some volunteer opportunities include giving out name tags, serving food, helping with activities and crafts, and just visiting with the people we serve.
