Serve as a Group
Be a visible demonstration of Christ’s love in our community – with a group! We believe that serving together is one of the quickest and most comfortable ways of getting deeper with your group. So how can you serve? All you have to do is let us know you’re interested and we will help your group find the perfect serving opportunities that work with your unique group and schedule. Groups can be coworkers, neighbors, groups or friends!
Check out our group – friendly opportunities below!
Serve a hot meal to the homeless in Oakland through CityTeam! Right in the heart of downtown, CityTeam provides hot meals and other services for the homeless. Find out more about CityTeam Oakland here.
CityTeam has various needs for cleanup, painting, gardening, etc that groups can serve at, both at their main campus and at the House of Hope, a women's transitional shelter. Find out more about CityTeam Oakland here.
Sunflower Hill is unique in that your group can serve any Saturday from 9am-12pm without booking an appointment! Unless it is raining, just print your waiver online and bring it to the garden and get ready to be put to work weeding, planting, harvesting, etc. Looking for a fun special event to do with your group to serve AND have some carnival style fun? Attend one of the family days that are pre-scheduled quarterly. The garden gives people with special needs volunteer and work opportunities, and grows produce which is used to feed the homeless and near homeless in the Tri-Valley. To find out more about our Sunflower Hill and to find the volunteer waivers go here.
Your group can gather in a casual and comfortable environment and make the day of a senior in our community! Play board or card games, do a craft, or just sit and chat with seniors in our partner facilities and enjoy community with one another. You can also take seniors to do serve projects, like Kids Against Hunger or projects at the center (think writing cards to military, etc). To find out more about our senior ministry, go here.
The Hanger is a community closet located in Pleasanton that offers free clothing and school supplies to kids and families in need in our community. If organization and sorting is your jam this is the perfect opportunity for you! Your group can come and prepare the room for families to come in and pick out clothing. Keep the good, toss the bad, and make sure that our community doesn't lack the necessities! To find out more about PUSD programs Blue Oaks supports, go here.
