What comes to mind when you hear the word “missionaries”? Do you imagine people working in foreign places that you have only seen in pictures? These people seem to possess a faith in Christ that is beyond comprehension.
Mission is not limited to distant continents or even Civic Center Park in downtown Denver. It is right here in Littleton, staring us in the face. God has placed Littleton United Methodist here for a reason and that reason is to bless the ever-changing community around us.
THE MISSIONARY IS YOU
The mission field begins when you set a foot outside your front door. The missionary is you.
Our vision is that our church can be an active representative of Christ, caring for families within a two-mile radius of 5894 South Datura Street. We are moving toward our vision to be better neighbors to those in our community.
We are “Loving Littleton!” Here are some opportunities for you to love our neighbors.
Calling all Tutors!
East Elementary’s Homework Club is an after school activity, where specific students nominated by their teachers, meet with volunteers to help them with homework and to practice what
they have learned in school. East Elementary invites students that are struggling with homework due to academics, or language to participate in the Homework Club.
Homework Club meets 3 times a week (Tue-Wed-Thu) right after school and each student comes once a week to meet the same volunteer at our library for 40 minutes until 3:40 pm. Volunteers choose to come once or up to 3 times a week. You can choose to come from 2:50 to 3:40 any Tuesday, Wednesday and/or Thursday. We believe Homework Club should be a structured and comfortable place for students to do their homework so a commitment from the volunteers of at least 8 weeks in a row, coming on their chosen day from 2:50 to 3:40 pm. Occasional conflicts with scheduling, due to doctor appointments or traveling, can be managed if East Elementary is given enough notice.
East Elementary always needs more volunteers as the need for support is great. Volunteers don’t need to have any special education or skills, just the will and the patience to support and guide these students. A background check is required and Littleton Public School (LPS) will do this at no cost to you. To register as a volunteer and do the background check, please, click on the link
below that will take you to the registration page: https://lps.ezcommunicator.net/edu/lps/login_form.aspx?app=0.
You will then click on the REGISTER AS A VOLUNTEER section to start the process.
Homework Club starts in October and ends in April. Please contact Claudia Vega at firstname.lastname@example.org and let her know you are interested in volunteering for Homework Club.
