Cody Serving Opportunities

Reading Mentoring – Spend an hour a week with an elementary student helping them grow in reading and in life.
After School Bible Club – God has opened the door for us to speak with the students who are interested in learning about faith. Come join us after school to help student get to know Jesus.

The dates of the remaining clean-ups are:

Why Serve At Cody?

Our Cody Partnership volunteers do an excellent job of building friendships with our Cody staff and students. As we interact with students in mentoring, after school Bible clubs, athletic events, and extracurricular activities we see how amazing each person is.

It’s a joy to partner with the staff to encourage and help students grow. The number of students we can encourage is tied directly to the number of volunteers we have. Will you consider joining our team this school year?

From the Director

Knowing Jesus and making Him known – by serving Detroit’s Cody Rouge community

“Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful  stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” – 1 Peter 4:10

It’s really quite simple, though it’s not always easy. Everyone is made in the image of God, therefore, everybody is worthy of love. So we engage and invest in the people of Cody Rouge community. The beautiful side effect is the impact the Cody Partnership makes on our lives, too. There are a number of ways to share your time, talents, and treasure.

Send me an email or give me a call. I’ll be glad to share my Cody story and discover how we can help build yours!
