New First Sundays Group for Teen Girls

Our Student Ministry has a new opportunity for teen girls to grow in their faith and grow in community together. This group will follow the format of meeting the first Sunday of each month at 9am. However, we will be reading and discussing Christian books that are pertinent to the life of a teen girl.  The first group will he held on October 2nd in Room 107 and will begin with the book, God Called a Girl by Shannon Kubiak. You can find the book HERE to order.  This book explores how God called a teenage girl to accomplish the mission that changed the world forever…being the mother of God’s own Son!  Chapter by chapter we’ll see how God has big plans for our lives too and by responding like Mary we can live an extraordinary life that builds His Kingdom and brings Him glory! All girls from 5th grade and up are welcome as well as their moms!  To sign up, please contact Kayla Zunia at or Gabby Galloway at Special thanks to Jamie Ferrin for leading this class!

Restoration Rome - Needs and Opportunities

Weeding - Recently, a wonderful group of young ladies took care of this, but, as you know, the weeds will be back soon. This is an ongoing opportunity.

Clean up Day/Evening - There are several large pieces of furniture in the cafeteria that need to be moved to another area at Restoration Rome. This will be an action-packed day/evening. Lots of lifting, movement and walking will be involved.

After school program - There are opportunities to help with the younger set – K-6th graders on a consistent basis (at least one afternoon a week) or by bringing in a special program.

Teen boys and teen girl engagement – 1) Thrive is a YMCA-led early evening program for teen boys primarily serving those living in the East Rome Crossing neighborhood around RR. 2) Three Circles Ministry offers monthly Saturday “camps” in Floyd and Chattooga Counties for teens in state care, at-risk, or needing a father figure. 3) Glowing Girls offers teen girls 12-18 a monthly Saturday gathering at RR and an annual Conference Day in February. All of these programs would benefit from supportive help with food/supplies and especially with volunteers interested in building relationships with our teens. 4) Making Sense of Your Worth for Teens is an 8-week program that we want to make available to our teen girls. Assistance with hospitality and activity preparation would be a big help.

Young Adult Ministry – Connections Homes trains mentoring families to serve as a resource (not a home) for young adults (18-24) aging out of foster care or lacking family. Mentoring families are meant primarily to be a source of wisdom and guidance during the transition to adulthood, rather than providers of housing, clothing, etc.

Providing Meals for groups that meet at RR

Parent support group - This group includes parents that are working on reunification with their children.  Meetings are every Thursday evening and they usually have about 10-12 people. Providing a simple, easy meal for this meeting would be so appreciated. Joining in for the mealtime would be a great way to encourage these families, as well. If you can't be there for the meeting, meals can be dropped off at RR the day of the meeting.

Foster Parent Association Monthly meeting - Childcare and providing a meal are the two needs for this group. This is a larger group than the parent support group (~ 30 adults and children).

Making Sense of Your Worth for AdultsChildcare is needed so that birth moms can attend the meetings and discover their self-worth. There are 8 sessions in the program and classes are offered at various times of the day to accommodate specific groups. Schedules are developed based on a waitlist.

Decorating rooms at RR - a few volunteers with an "eye" for decorating are needed. RR has received an abundance of donations of pictures that need to be paired together and coordinated with wall colors and floor colors to find that perfect spot. These volunteers would work closely with a YMCA volunteer that will be making frames for the pictures.

September Opportunities

September 1-2: RR will host a 2 day DFCS training in Trust-Based Relational Intervention. Help will be needed with hospitality (greeting and serving lunch). This is a great way to show support for DFCS staff!

October Opportunities

Week of 3rd - 7th - This week is Making Sense of Your Worth Facilitator training. Help with this would include breakfast and lunchtime hospitality.

Week of 17th - 21st - The focus on this week will be on lifting up and encouraging Child Welfare Workers. This could include things like cards, cookies, flowers, etc. These items can be dropped off at RR for distribution.

Oct 18th - Pastors Appreciation Luncheon - Help will be needed to pull this off. Opportunities before the luncheon would include setting up tables/chairs and arranging center pieces. The day of the event help will be needed with serving of the food and clean up.

*To sign up for any of these opportunities, please contact Mary Margaret at or (706)346-6419.
