Volunteer with Worcester Fellowship

Worcester Fellowship relies on our wonderful volunteers. Reach out today to make a difference.

Worcester Fellowship imagines a church where people with housing and people without housing gather together to share worship, to build community, to know God’s infinite love and find ‘home’ as part of the Body of Christ, the Church.

Pastor Zach Kerzee

Attend Worship

Individuals or groups are welcome to join us on Sundays for worship in front of All Saints Church on Irving Street. Sing and pray with us and provide a listening ear to those on the margins. Every year, Youth groups from all around Massachusetts join Worcester Fellowship for lunch and worship. Because we like to maintain the intimacy of our worship, we ask that you bring no more than 10 total people.

Provide Lunches

Our thanks to all of our devoted  and greatly appreciated lunch providers!  Below are the guidelines so that we have  consistency with the lunches. (50 lunches per provider is typical -please check the calendar to make sure you are on the schedule!)

Guidlines

1. Lunches should be bagged and labeled with the type of sandwich in the bag. nA variety of sandwiches are welcome (individually wrapped).  Please bring 10-15 peanut butter and jelly sandwiches and the remaining sandwiches consisting of meat or meat/cheese (ham, bologna, lean roast beef  are favorites!).

2. Include an individually wrapped soft dessert or snack (cookies, brownies without nuts, nutra-grain bars, chips, etc.) and a soft fruit (no apples/pears) or a fruit cup/applesauce or pudding (and plastic spoon if needed).

3.  Most groups also provide juice boxes or bottled water to either be included in the lunch bag or handed out separately.  THIS IS OPTIONAL as it may be cost prohibitive for some churches (see #6 for alternatives).

4. You are welcome to bring prepared (in a cooler) hot chocolate (4 gallons) in the cold months, or prepared (in a cooler) fruit punch or lemonade (4 gallons) in the warmer months (please just let us know ahead of time so that we don’t also bring it).

5. Please bring lunches for each member of your group if you plan to eat with us.

What else can we bring?

Here are some optional items suggestions for Lunch Providers (kindly give any of these items to Pastor Zach in lieu of putting things in lunch bags):  50 pair of men’s new cotton socks, Dunkin Donut gift cards in small denominations, 100 paper cups, 50-ounce containers of punch mix (warmer months) or hot chocolate (cooler months) for the next weeks service.  If the temperature is below 50 degrees, you can bring hats and gloves.

Sign up for Sunday Drinks

Sign up to bring 4 gallons of prepared hot chocolate and 100 cups when it is cold, or 4 gallons of fruit punch, lemonade, or sweetened ice tea and 100 cups when it is warmer weather (or 8 gallons of cold drink and 200 cups when it is over 80 degrees PLEASE).  Email office@worcesterfellowship.org to sign up.

What if the weather is bad?

PLEASE DO NOT BRING EXTRAS if the weather is below 50 degrees or raining.  PLEASE PLAN to bring home the boxes or bags you used to deliver the lunches.
