Big Serve

Big Serve April 13, 2019

WEATHER ALERT: CONNECT WITH YOUR SITE LEADER IF RAIN BECOMES A CONCERN. SITE LEADERS HAVE BEEN IN CONTACT WITH NON-PROFITS TO DETERMINE THE BEST WAY TO PROCEED WITH PROJECTS. THANK YOU!

 

Be the Church as we partner with the local body of believers and head out in unity to serve non-profits and others in need around New Braunfels.  This is a great reminder to ourselves that we are the Church, we don't attend one. Current congregations involved include First Protestant, Freedom Fellowship, Hope Presbyterian, NB Presbyterian, NB Church of Christ, Oakwood, Peace Lutheran, River City Church, River City Vineyard, the Springs Community Church, St. John's Episcopal, Tree of Life, and more. All are welcome to join!

Site needs vary from painting buildings, breaking down walls and planting flowers, to crocheting homeless mats and writing cards to prisoners. All ages and abilities are welcome! 

Most volunteer times are from 9am-12pm or 1pm-4pm, but check your site for exact service time. Feel free to sign up for a morning shift and an afternoon shift, if you'd like.

Childcare will not be provided. Your kids are welcome to serve alongside you and child-friendly sites are noted.

A Site Leader will be in touch the week before the Big Serve to confirm your attendance, discuss supply needs, and be sure to help you with any questions. Questions before you hear from your site leader? Contact Kim Francis at 720.323.9901 or [email protected]

Date: 04/13/2019 (Sat.)
