This afternoon I start a new volunteer experience. I will be involved in the Big Brothers/Big Sisters initiative called Real Men Read. I will spend 45 minutes to an hour with a third-grade class this afternoon reading to them. I’m excited about this opportunity and for meeting the kids today.
On the weekends, I volunteer at my church by playing bass guitar on one of our worship team bands. There is a significant time commitment in that I arrive usually around 7 AM and don’t leave until about 12:15 to 12:30 PM each Sunday. And tonight we have a special rehearsal just go over new songs. But I enjoy the experience a lot and I know it helps out my church for me to volunteer the time that I do week after week.
Where do you invest your volunteer time? Comment below. Thanks!

Volunteering is awesome! Weekly kids club at church on Wednesday nights, monthly powerpoint at church on Sunday mornings, various handyman projects as needed.
Hey Jim! Good luck at RMR today.. I’m reading to a class of 2nd graders through the program today too. It is a lot of fun!
