Lancaster PA Volunteer Opportunities

Water Street Ministries

You Have Been Blessed. Now You Can Be a Blessing to Others

We have been truly blessed in this country.  And in this community.  Too often we take for granted all that we have.

When the right opportunity arises, it is good to be able to give back to our community or to those in need.  There are many opportunities to volunteer throughout Lancaster County.  But sometimes those needs go unnoticed.

Well, here are some volunteer opportunities that may strike an interest with you and your particular gifts.  Follow through and give them a call.  You could help one of these organizations and yourself, too. You could also check out our Lancaster Ministries page to see if there is a local organization that could use your abilities. As the Apostle Paul said in Acts 20:35:

“In everything I did, I showed you that by this kind of hard work we must help the weak, remembering the words the Lord Jesus himself said: ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’ ”
