Prepare a meal: Cook meals to be served at New Visions shelter in Camden. No experience required. Once a month, cooks gather in the church kitchen to prepare a meal for 150 people or more. 

Donate a dessert: Join the Sweet Eats Club to provide 4oz. fruit cups or special requests
 for a sweet ending to the meals prepared for New Visions each month. Pies may be requested at Thanksgiving. Drop off your contributions before 1:00 pm the day we cook. Contact Sharon Hoobler at (856) 429-2474. 

Transport meals: Take meals and other donations to Camden sites or other locations throughout the region. 

Volunteer at a clinic: Help by providing  health screenings, food, and fellowship. Doctors, nurses, translators, receptionists and helping hands are needed at St. Wilfrid’s Church in Camden, 11:00-1:00 pm on the third Saturday of the month.  Every Saturday doctors and nurses are needed at the co-op at Urban Promise from 9:00-11:00 am. For more information contact Jill Mascena at 856-428-7342.

Become a mission leader: Take charge of one of our existing mission activities or lead a new project (including national and international mission trips). Have an idea for a project? 

Serve as a mission liaison: Establish a relationship with the staff of an organization our church supports and keep First Presbyterian informed of its needs. Or, follow missionaries we support through blogs, website of the Presbyterian Church, USA, personal letters, or e-mails. Then, share pertinent information with the congregation. 

Join the Mission Committee: Identify more ways we can share God’s love with those in need and help us prioritize how we use our resources.
