Mission Opportunities

This is a starting place for opportunities to serve at Harp’s Crossing. More will be added as the needs are made known.


Local Opportunities:

Good News Club – We are looking for volunteers right now to help us in the 2017-2018 school year. Club meets every Monday during the school year at a local elementary school in Fayetteville. Become involved in helping out with a club that teaches children about the love of Christ. Contact Sheryl Bodron for more information. A TRAINING EVENT at Harp’s Crossing will be August 25th. We will teach you all you need to know. Come join us!

Do You Love Decorating?
Are you looking for your place to serve in God’s Church? We are looking for volunteers to step up and serve in our Sanctuary Beautification area. This would include arranging the baptistry flowers, arrangements for the tables in lobby, and decorations for Christmas and other special holidays. We are looking for a team of people and also for one to take the lead and head this up. If interested, please call the church office 770-461-5318.

Sunday School Teacher
We are in need of teachers and teacher helpers in our Preschool, Children, Youth, and Adult areas. The new Sunday School year will begin August 6th and we still have some openings. Contact Keith Turner if you would like to serve.

Wednesday Night Missions and Choir Leaders
The Wednesday night Missions and Choir groups for children and youth will promote on August 9th. There are still some openings for leaders and helpers. Contact Linda Bidez for missions and Steve Owens for choirs if you would like to serve in one of these areas.

Do you like to cook or serve meals?
We can use you for some of the many events that are held at our church. From teacher breakfasts, committee meetings, bereavement meals for families during funerals, or other events throughout the year that come up and a meal is needed, we can use volunteers to help us out. If you would like to serve in this area, please call the church office or email Jenny Davis and allow her to put your name and contact information on a list so that as the need arises, we can pull in help from you and other volunteers.

GBC Disaster Relief Training –  See David Bowen for more information.

Backpacks for Appalachia Project – (Now known as Backpacks of Hope) – Each year, we collect backpacks filled with items during the month of September. Thank you to those who made this year’s project a great success! Through your generous donations, our church was able to deliver 194 filled backpacks to Cleveland, TN for children in need.


Thank YOU, Georgia Baptists

Thanks for your tremendous response to  Backpacks for Appalachia. In 2016, 35,234 backpacks were provided to the children in Appalachia!

In 2017, Georgia Baptists are once again partnering with Appalachian Regional Ministries to provide Backpacks of Hope. The new name, Backpacks of Hope, reflects an additional emphasis in southwest Georgia as well as Appalachia.

Our goal for 2017 is 35,000 backpacks.
