There are 48 Singing Oaks members who are active volunteers. Each serves one time/month and a few volunteer for as many a three time/month. This work couldn’t be sustained without this great group of Christian brothers and sisters. They witness this work and are gracious hosts for this busy ministry. The work we do has many faces. Each of these volunteers often have opportunities to greet and help the families who come to us for help. Their work and efforts are greatly appreciated. They do a great job of representing Singing Oaks Church of Christ to all the families who visit us for assistance.
