Concerts, Groups, Fun, and Service – we are all about Community at GO.
You are invited to outdoor movie nights, fun and games, regular concerts by local artists and well known acts, open-mic events, and plenty of other gatherings to spend time with your family and neighbors. On a more personal level mom’s groups, book clubs, arts and crafts gatherings, among others will be available throughout the year. Come and have fun, learn a new skill, or just hang out. Our founders at GO have been dedicated to serving people in need for over 10 years. We would love to have you serve along side of us! There are plenty of ways to partner with us to make a difference for people who need it.
We are committed to impacting the community around us. One way we live this out is through service. Join us the second Saturday of each month. Wear your jeans and be a part of a team that's making a difference.
Here are a few of the ways you can serve others with us:
Our Connecting Kitchen team heads to downtown Reading with sandwiches and other items to give away to those in need. You can get involved by joining the team downtown or by packing a few lunches to give out, bringing warm winter coats, scarves, hats, gloves, and socks for those living on the streets, and by praying for this team caring for the homeless.
Every 2nd Saturday (GO Worship's Jean Sabbath) finds our children headed to a local nursing facility where they are building relationships with residents. Each month they sing songs, read poems, and connect with people. One young person also shares a message. We take fun and worship to them.
Pack a lunch then join us for an afternoon of bringing smiles to the faces of others.
Amazon Wish List
If you are unable to serve with us but would still like to make a difference in the lives of families in our community, our Amazon wish list has many items we'd like to fill The Look Out drop in center with. Prices range from $5 to $250 so no matter what your price point is, you'll be sure to find something to help enrich the lives of hundreds of children and their families.
Children's Home of Reading (CHOR)
Join the CHOR team and spend every 2nd Saturday afternoon playing games with the teens at CHOR. It may sound like all fun and games (and it is fun!) but our team is building relationships with kids who have not had adults who cared, played, treated them with respect, and just hung out with them.
There is also a Bible study with the residents each first and third Saturday mornings. You must be 21 years or older to participate in this project.
Are you a morning person who wants to help others? Then join our Opportunity House team every 2nd Saturday morning as they prepare and serve breakfast at the Opportunity House homeless shelter in downtown Reading, Pa.
Volunteer at the Center
With all the activity at The Lookout, there are plenty of ways to get involved. We can use your help with everything from cleaning, to reading stories, to teaching arts and crafts, and more. People with education backgrounds are especially welcome as we plan to fill our Family Play Center with science, math, arts and reading.
If adults are more your speed, GO Worship and Community Center is always looking for great seminar teachers of various topics and other small group facilitators. We can also use help with setup and tear down from our events. Do you have an idea how you can help GO? Contact us!
*Special note All volunteers at GO are required to clear a background check for safety. If you want to jump in and get your hands dirty, additional volunteers are always welcome! Contact us to get involved.
