Details

Those in need are always standing in line, but not at Micah Ministry, where they are the guests and meals are served to them as they sit at a table, along with items from the clothing closet. At Micah we are gracious hosts. If you can be there at 5 that is ideal, but please no later than 5:15 for job assignments. We recommend trying different positions to find your favorite: food server, beverage table, dessert cart, clothing pantry or bussing. Dinner starts at 5:30 and ends by 7 pm. It can be chaotic, but most volunteers find it very rewarding. On a typical Monday evening Micah Ministry serves[masked] of Kansas City's working poor and homeless. KINDNESS REMINDER: Micah Ministry welcomes a diverse population, and when we volunteer there we are asked to always be kind and gracious hosts. If you encounter a situation where someone is not being kind, or you don't know how to manage the situation, please come find Sharon Cantrell, the Pastor for Micah Ministry, or myself. AGE RESTRICTIONS: Because only basic screenings are given for our guests, there are rules to keep volunteers safe. Children 12-15 are allowed to work alongside an adult. Those over 16 may volunteer solo. DIRECTIONS: The Church is located on the south side of Independence Blvd in a large, white stone structure. One parking lot is behind the church and another is across the street on the east side. Enter the church thru the red back door inside the fenced parking lot, where the Security Guard stands. Go down to the basement, through the kitchen, and into the dining hall. As you enter the dining hall the name tags will be immediately to your left. Please make yourself a tag and add ServeKC so we can find each other easily. We will look for any name tags that say ServeKC, but if we don't find you please look for Denise in the men's clothing room, or Kay and Morgan in the food plating line for any help.
