We Love Volunteers
“Volunteering at Mustard Seed has not only allowed me to contribute to a worthy cause but has also enriched my own personal growth. It has given me the opportunity to develop new skills, broaden my perspective, and deepen my understanding of the challenges faced by marginalized individuals in our community. I will carry these experiences with me throughout my life and continue to advocate for those in need.” – Cayla Brendell.
Here at the Mustard Seed Street Church, we love volunteers who are kind, eager to serve and have a heart for the community.
