Service Sunday

JANUARY 23, FOLLOWING 10AM WORSHIP

We are planning an exciting new event, Service Sunday, on January 23.  What does this mean?  We will have one worship service that day at 10:00am.  Immediately following, all are invited to take part in a service activity constructing “kits” for the homeless.  We will need volunteers of all ages and activity levels to help pack necessity kits that can be distributed to our brothers and sisters who have fallen on hard times.  Once we finish assembling our kits that day, the Fellowship Committee will host a luncheon to enjoy together.

What can you do?  Drop off supplies (see list below) that we will need to complete our kits. Feel free to drop supplies in the plastic bin outside of the glass doors of the church.  Please plan to join us for a morning of fellowship and service on January 23. 

Contact Liz Sutter with any questions.
