Saratoga Federated Church

February 23, 2020 Serve Sunday

Serve Sunday is for anyone and everyone! Invite a friend or neighbor to join you in serving for just a few short hours this day. At Saratoga Federated Church we believe loving our neighbors is a great way to build community.

Below you will find projects fitting a wide range of skills and abilities. If you are able bodied, please consider signing up for an off-campus project. Many of the onsite projects are great for people with limited mobility, and we need space on those projects for walk-ins that day.

Date: 02/23/2020 (Sun.)
