COMMUNITY EMERGENCY RESPONSE TEAM (CERT)
The Community Emergency Response Team program educates people about disaster preparedness for hazards that may impact their area and trains them in basic disaster response skills, such as fire safety, light search and rescue, team organization, and disaster medical operations.
Using the training learned in the classroom and during exercises, CERT members can assist others in their neighborhoods or workplaces following a disaster. As Christians, we not only help in a practical way but also a spiritual way.

Distributing Bibles and New Testaments around the world having God’s word can and does lead people to faith in Christ, and those new Christians then grow by studying their Scriptures and even use them to share their faith with others. For this reason, we focus on distributing complete Bibles, New Testaments, or portions thereof. These copies of God’s Word are printed in more than 90 languages and are either given directly to certain individuals or placed in selected public locations where large numbers of people, who may be searching for answers, will have the ability to encounter the Word of God.
You can donate bibles in memory of a loved one that passed away by picking a card at the Gideon display in the Student Center lobby.

HANDS & FEET MINISTRY (ELEMENTARY SCHOOL LITERACY PROGRAM)
What on earth is going on in those public school classrooms? More than you could ever imagine! Want to be part of the change? Christians are called to engage our society, not passively resign themselves to it.
Over 6.3 million children are reported to CPS each year and these children become the alcohol and drug abusers, the mentally ill, the sexually dysfunctional and most recently the sex trafficked. They have a life expectancy of 20 years shorter than the average person. Illiteracy depletes our society in many ways as well. Elementary schools are located within blocks from Skyline Church. Volunteer opportunities include reading with students, helping in classrooms or the library, running after-school clubs-including Christian clubs-or tutoring. You may not be able to change the world, but you can change a handful of lives and become educated enough on the public school system to know how to more effectively pray for it.
Together we can impact the future and be God’s hands and feet to a hurting world, starting one school at a time.
Contact Julie Lambert for more info.
Serving the homeless, hungry, and poor, reunifying homeless with relatives, helping disaster survivors, fighting human trafficking, equipping families, combating addiction, loving the elderly and sharing God’s love is what we do, meeting human needs in His name wherever, whenever, and however we can.
