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 September Focus – ASPCA

For the month of September, the Board of Community Ministries has chosen to focus on supporting the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA)!  ASPCA was the first humane society established in North America and has been instrumental in providing rights for animals since 1866.  As humans given dominion over God’s creatures, we want to do our part to make sure all animals are treated with the kindness and respect they deserve – and this is our small way of making this principle a reality.  Please consider helping us donate to this wonderful charity and helping ASPCA continue their wonderful and impactful work.
If you are interested in helping us support this mission, you can donate HERE, via Pushpay, or you can send a check to the church. (Please earmark the funds on Pushpay or your check for this specific purpose so we know how to allocate it.)  Remember, the Community Ministries Board will match donations provided by the congregation so we hope to really make an impact for those in need.

Ecclesia Ministries Sundays

We look forward to resuming our work with Ecclesia in the near future.

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.
