We’d love for you to be part of our team.
Throughout this summer you have the opportunity to serve the kids and families around the Celebration Dream Center, as well as opportunities to serve our city through many different outreach options!
SOME OF THE SUMMER OF SERVING OPPORTUNITIES INCLUDE:
The Summer camp and Summer lunch program are part of our ministry platform registration for outreach. Volunteers for this will need to be background checked.
YOU CAN CHOOSE YOUR SERVING DATES AND SIGN UP TO SERVE HERE.
We are so excited to serve at our Dream Center and to serve our city with you this summer and share the love and hope of Jesus with those in need.
Through our local outreach initiatives, we partner with several organizations and ministries, working together to meet the practical and spiritual needs of the communities we serve. Our goal is to be the hands and feet of Jesus, driven by His heart to serve others, while giving people the opportunity to find true hope and fulfillment.
Celebration Church is especially focused on making an impact in the lives of at-risk youth. This is expressed in most of our outreach partnerships and opportunities, though there are several other options as well. Our teams are made up of a diverse group of people who have true servant hearts, and are always ready to embrace people from all walks of life with the joy, grace and love of Christ. Join us in making a difference and being the hands and feet of Jesus.
ORANGE PARK WEEKEND PACKS FOR KIDS.
Our team packs snacks for students in need at two local elementary schools. These packs are packed, prayed for, and delivered each Thursday.
GROVE PARK ELEMENTARY.
Mentoring and tutoring for the students in one hour slots during school days between 10am-1pm. One hour a week will make a huge impact in the lives of these children. We are also collecting socks, shoes, and underwear for the students, sizes 6-16 boys and girls. You can drop off these items to the OP Campus on Sundays.
EPISCOPAL CHILDREN’S SERVICES.
Let’s go back and lend a hand with clean up and preparing the playground for spring. Ongoing opportunities to serve this school are to volunteer your time to read to the children Monday-Friday anytime between 9am-11am. You can also donate diapers, arts and craft items, and gently used educational toys. You can drop these items off to the OP Campus on Sundays.
We serve to reach children and students in these sometimes forgotten facilities. Through simple activities such as playing games, sharing quick devotionals, or cleanup efforts, our goal is to bring a message of hope to students who might not otherwise be able to attend a church service. Together, we can remind them that they are not forgotten, and point them to the source of truest hope and fulfillment, Jesus Christ.
CLARA WHITE MISSION.
In partnership with Clara White Mission we host a bimonthly outreach to serve the homeless and low-income community in the downtown Jacksonville area. Clara White takes place on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month, and the time is 1:00pm-4:00pm.
We provide practical needs such as food, clothing, hygiene items, haircuts, and bike repairs, as well as a life-giving message. Our goal is to serve this community, point them to the love of Christ, and help overcome hurdles that get in the way of people experiencing a God-first life.
You can get involved by serving at the outreach, or by donating clothing, shoes, blankets, or hygiene items. Drop off location for donations is at our Midtown Location.
FEEDING CLAY COUNTY.
A group meets every Wednesday to help put food bags together that are given to families and individuals who are homeless and living in local motels. We meet every Wednesday at 5:30pm in the building next to Round Robin through the glass doors.

ADOPT A SUPPORTIVE HOME WITH MERCY SUPPORT SERVICES.

We have several different outreach opportunities and host periodic special services at different nursing homes in the area. The purpose of these outreaches is to remind this community that they are not forgotten, but are valuable and loved.
Assist with activities and events during the week at various centers throughout Clay County. Activities are bingo, dancing, art, exercise, deliver meals, assist with paperwork, and more. You can visit clayccoa.com to view their activity calendars.
Seamark Ranch is a nurturing Christian home and family system that gives children from families in crisis the tools they need for a brighter future. Through a family home model, a specialized residential school, and the lessons of life on a working farm community, Seamark Ranch provides the ideal setting for love, stabilization, healing, education and empowerment.
Our local outreach teams mobilize as needed throughout the year to serve the children and families at Seamark by hosting cleanup days, and meeting other practical needs the families may have. Join us in making a difference and being the hands and feet of Jesus.
