Mondays

3:00 - 4:30 | Truly Living Well

Practice using your green thumb as we assist a local Atlanta community garden to help individuals of all ages learn sustainable agriculture.

For more information, contact Brett McClain, Helen Marrin or Kishore Karnick.


4:30 - 6:00 | Bearings Bike Shop

Join us as we help children learn to fix bikes and encourage them as they learn the skill and value of hard work!

For more information, contact Eric Strickland, Jake Hancock or Macy Werner.




Tuesdays

3:00 - 4:30 | Elementary School Tutoring

By helping tutor students, you get an opportunity to invest in local elementary school students through helping with homework, reading stories, and playing games with the kids.

For more information, contact Marc Smith.


6:00 - 8:00 | Dinner at Wachovia Park

Help to cook a meal with us at CCF to share with our friends at Wachovia Park. By sharing a weekly dinner with our neighbors from the street, we work to show love to all those around us.

For more information, contact Jamin Hershberger, John Golden, Lauren Maes, or Taylor Mckie.




Wednesdays

1:00 - 3:00 | Knit-A-Square

Join us as we knit or crochet small squares to make blankets for orphans and vulnerable children in South Africa. Many of these children are suffering with HIV, which makes staying warm even more crucial for their health. Don’t know how to knit? No problem; we’ll teach you!

For more information, contact Amber Athon, Jake Hancock, Kaitlyn Vaughan, or Misty Parker.


3:00 - 4:30 | Tutoring at Cristo Rey

By tutoring at Cristo Rey Atlanta Jesuit High School, you get an opportunity to invest in high school students through helping with homework and getting to make new friends within our Atlanta community. The first time slot is tutoring Geometry with Emily, while the second time slot is tutoring Chemistry with Austin.

For more information, contact Mason Brantley or Taylor McKie.




Thursdays

11:00 - 12:30 | ReMerge & Art

Every Thursday, we head over to ReMerge (formerly known as Church on the Street) to share lunch and build relationships. Through sharing a meal with our most vulnerable neighbors, the homeless of Atlanta, we foster intentional and diverse Christian communities where everyone is welcome.

For more information, contact Josh Dixon or Paloma Costa.


3:00 - 4:30| Making Sandwiches at CCF

On Thursdays, we meet at the CCF house and make sandwiches for our friends on the streets.

For more information, contact John Carlisle, Kishore Karnick, or Molly Ricks.
