A number of great mission opportunities are available for those attending the General Assembly. Opportunities which do not require registration are listed first; please scroll down to register for the Blood Drive (external link) or to serve with Habitat for Humanity, the Crop Drop, Gleaners Food Bank, or Growing Places Indy.
Also, you can pre-order your very own GA “Mission Servant” t-shirt. All shirts ordered by May 31 will be available for pick-up from the Local Missions Booth at the Convention Center.
Make hero capes for children and parents in the NICO and PICU units. This on-going project will be set-up near Hall A in the Mission Area.
Rest awhile in the knitting corner and make hats to be donated locally. The area will be open Monday-Wednesday.
Send a handwritten letter to congressional representatives about hunger issues. Stationery and examples will be available, as long as information for contacting your representatives.
Walk-ups will be taken as space is available. It helps the blood drive staff, however, if you would please register in advance. Please note, donors will need to have a valid, picture ID and should eat and be hydrated prior to donating. If you have questions about eligibility to donate, please call the Indiana Blood Center at 317-916-5150 and ask to speak with a Donor Specialist.
On Monday from 8 am to noon, mission servants will sort and bag up to 40,000 pounds of produce to be distributed through local food banks. This will take place inside the convention center.
On Monday, two shifts are available with Gleaners Food Bank. Please note that all minors must have adult supervision. Shifts are 8:30 am – 11:30 am and 12:30 pm – 3:30 pm.
On Tuesday, Disciples will begin construction of a home for a local family inside the Convention Center, framing walls and building panels. Those serving must be 16 and older. Groups who wish to remain in Indianapolis after the Assembly could help with the on-site installation and construction as well. A total of 130 people are needed, divided into shifts between 7:00 am and 12:30 pm. After completing the form below, Habitat registrants will receive an email with a link to Habitat’s site for selecting from the available roles and shifts.
This is a community gardening project. It is open to servants of all ages (youth with appropriate supervision). Projects may include painting, harvesting, and weeding plus education about sustainable agriculture. More information will be posted as it is available.
