HOMETOWN SERVANT EVENT
HOMETOWN SERVANT EVENT
Our youth are organizing an event for the entire congregation to step up in our community and provide assistance to those in need. WE ARE ASKING ALL MEMBERS OF THE CONGREGATION TO HELP WITH THIS ENDEAVOR! We will be collecting individual needs from members of our congregation (this year, next year we hope to expand into the community). Needs may be cleaning out a garage, painting, weeding, spring cleaning etc. some area of need that would require 3 - 4 hours (that Saturday morning) for a team of people to accomplish. JOB REQUEST FORMS CAN BE FOUND IN THE NARTHEX.
Then the fun begins! We will be asking for volunteers (that’s YOU!) to step forward with your own team of people, or a individually and we will put your on a team with others. We will meet together on SATURDAY, MARCH 24th for breakfast in the cafeteria, and then go out to accomplish our goals of service. VOLUNTEER FORMS CAN BE FOUND IN THE NARTHEX! WHAT AN AWESOME WAY TO SERVE!
What we need from you in the next few weeks:
Consider if you have a task or need that a group of people can help you with, and watch the bulletin on how you can sign up for help. (As this is our first time, we may not be able to help everyone, but we really hope to have the numbers to do so)
Which brings us to our 2nd need: Watch the bulletin on how you can sign up to be part of this “HOMETOWN SERVANT EVENT” Or goal is to have over 100 members join us on March 24th for this event! Join us as families, teams or individuals for this special day of service!
Please prayerfully consider joining us on the morning of the 24th. We hope we can count on you to be part of this special event!
