Joining Jesus on His Mission
An important part of Providence Church’s mission is to “Respond by Serving”, and we encourage all covenant members to use their God-given talents, gifts, and passions to serve others! Our Outreach ministry offers many opportunities to join the work Jesus is already doing in our local communities and around the world. By enjoying and investing in people, building lasting relationships, and offering His grace through service to those in need of hope, healing, and wholeness, we believe we will see the kingdom of Jesus “on earth as it is in heaven”.
We engage in ongoing service opportunities with local schools, the Mt. Juliet Help Center, Compassionate Hands, and El Porvenir. Descriptions of these organizations, as well as sign-up information on how to get involved, are listed below. We partner with many other organizations and ministries on a seasonal basis. Please visit the Sign-up page to view current seasonal service opportunities. We look forward to serving with you!
Mt. Juliet Help Center
The Mt. Juliet Help Center provides emergency food assistance to those in need in our city. Providence Church supports the Mt. Juliet Help Center by hosting a monthly food collection on the fourth Sunday of each month. We are always looking for volunteers willing to help collect, sort, and deliver food to the Mt. Juliet Help Center on collection Sundays! For more information about the Mt. Juliet Help Center, please visit their website here.
Since 2013, Compassionate Hands has provided nearly 13,000 beds and meals for those experiencing homelessness in Wilson County. Providence Church partners with Compassionate Hands throughout the year in a variety of ways. For more information about Compassionate Hands, please visit their website here.
El Porvenir exists to empower rural Nicaraguans to achieve better health through comprehensive clean water projects. Providence Church partners with El Porvenir and Nicaraguan residents through prayer, financial donations, and mission trips in hopes of increasing the access to clean water in villages across Nicaragua. For more information about El Porvenir, please visit their website here.

Providence Church serves our local schools in a variety of ways. We encourage and care for teachers in a variety of ways, help provide basic needs and essentials for children, and volunteer as mentors and reading buddies throughout the school year. Our ongoing partner schools are Rutland Elementary and Barry Tatum Academy, though we love and support all of our local schools as needs arise.
