Save the date for upcoming serve opportunities this Christmas!
Dec. 7th – Christmas Marketplace
Be a part of the fun this season at our Christmas Marketplace! Use your gifts to create a beautiful, enjoyable environment for our community to shop for unique gifts from 20+ local vendors. This event provides an awesome opportunity to welcome folks into South’s doors in a non-intimidating setting and experience our community.
There are many ways to get involved including baking, setting up, working the beverage bar, hosting musical performers, even managing the chocolate fountain. Most volunteer slots are an hour in length, leaving you plenty of time to shop and enjoy the event! We’d love to help you get plugged in and find an area to serve that excites you.
“I enjoyed interacting with guests as they came in. It was also fun to hear their comments and see their reactions to the lovely setting, the number of vendors, live music, etc.”

Dec. 14th – Food Bank Christmas Shoppe
It’s so much more than a shoppe! We invite you to get involved with the South Food Bank Christmas Shoppe this year and discover the variety of ways you can serve under-resourced families in the Littleton area and help provide joy this Christmas season.
Love shopping? – Enjoy picking out gifts from Christmas lists provided by our Food Bank guests.
Good at organizing? – Help sort basic needs items, used coats and gifts into our three different “shops.”
Have a knack for hospitality? – Welcome our guests, make a craft with the kiddos, or help serve lunch!
With your help the Christmas Shoppe served over 60 families in 2018. We can’t wait to see how God will use us in this upcoming season!
“Josh told several people he had to walk almost a mile to the bus stop to get to work and didn’t have a warm winter coat. He was so thankful to find one at the Shoppe. He thought the Shoppe would be a little helpful, maybe he’d get some little gifts for the kids and that’s about it, but the gifts he found were exactly what the kids had been asking for!”

Dec. 15th – Posada Party
Ok, so what’s a Posada?? Glad you asked. A Posada is a festival celebrated in Mexico that commemorates the journey that Joseph and Mary made from Nazareth to Bethlehem. Our Ministry Partner North Littleton Promise throws a Christmas Posada party every year for the immigrant kids and families they serve, and we get to be a part of it!
NLP’s Christmas Posada consists of delicious Mexican cuisine, a Christmas pageant, crafts for the kids, family photos, and much more. Whether you’d like to be a server, help out with some gingerbread house making, or get things cleaned up in the kitchen, we’ve got an area for you to get involved.
“The whole team from South Fellowship absolutely amazing!!! Everyone came in with such a fantastic attitude, ready to help wherever needed. The event went smoothly thanks to the 62 volunteers who all came and did their part!”

Dec. 24th – Christmas Eve Services
Christmas is a time when a lot of people who don’t regularly attend a church find themselves coming through our doors. A number of folks might have been hurt by the church in the past, or maybe the holidays are a tough time for them due to being away from family or losing a loved one this past year. This is our opportunity as a church family to welcome them with open arms, provide a great experience, and share with them the hope and joy of Jesus.
You can help serve our community this Christmas Eve in a variety of ways. Welcome people with a warm smile while showing them where to park, show some love to their kids in Kids Ministry, even manage our s’mores bar in the lobby! You’ll have the chance to hang out with other volunteers in Volunteer Central and you’ll receive a small gift from South just to say thank you for using your gifts to welcome others this Christmas.
“Serving on Christmas Eve really added to my enjoyment of the day! Joining in the worship and celebration has always been a family tradition, but actually participating was special – I loved sharing my joy with so many who attended, and seeing their appreciation of the decorations, music, and message.”
-Christmas Eve Volunteer
We have two volunteer options for you to choose from. You can serve through a One Time Serve or a Scheduled Serve.
