Volunteer With Us

We’re always looking for volunteers to help out at our Sunday Coffee Hour, ushering during services and at our many partner organization events. For more opportunities, visit the Community Calendar.

Community Ministries August Focus

Virtual Back-to-School Drive, Aug. 8-22

The Community Ministries focus for August will be a virtual Back-to-School Drive that will benefit the charity The Brotherhood – Sister Sol, which is an organization providing resources for Black and Latino youth in Harlem.  To learn more about this organization, check out their website: https://brotherhood-sistersol.org/.  The virtual drive will be run completely online through the company “You Give Goods”, where members can log onto our individual site and purchase BTS items directly. The BTS drive will run from August 8 – 22 and once completed the purchases will be delivered directly to Brotherhood – Sister Sol on our behalf.  For more information about MABC’s efforts and to access a link to our donation page, follow THIS LINK or go directly to the donation page: yougivegoods.com/mabcbtsdrive-2022

Ecclesia Ministries Sundays

MABC is now officially a sponsoring congregation for Ecclesia Ministries which ministers to the poor and marginalized in public spaces throughout NYC through worship services and lunches. Our church will be responsible for the fifth Sundays during the year. Rev. Susan Sparks will preach and our congregation led by our Community Ministries Board will prepare lunches for each of these worship services.  We are honored to be a part of this important ministry for New York City!

Please note: During this time of pandemic, our volunteer effort with the Ecclesia lunch program has been suspended.

Lay Readers Wanted!

Are you interested in reading scripture during our virtual services?  We’d love to include you!  If you would like to participate, please contact Brian Crowson, bcrowson@mabcnyc.org, to find out more information.

Letter-Writing Volunteers Needed

New Alternatives for LGBT Youth, an organization MABC partnered with earlier in the year for a soup kitchen ministry, has asked for volunteers in writing letters to some of their incarcerated clients. These at-risk individuals often become isolated and vulnerable in jail and this communication helps provide them with support along their journey. If anyone is interested in participating, please email Adom Crew at adom.crew@gmail.com for more information.
