Come Serve With Us! 2018

Come Serve With Us! 2018

Come Serve With Us! 2018 Kick Off Dinner is June 27 - sign up here.

During the month of July, EVERYONE – whether it be families with children, couples, individuals, or groups of friends – is invited to volunteer to serve our partner ministries throughout Knoxville and East Tennessee.

Maybe you've always wondered what goes on at the ministries supported by Cedar Springs and felt called to serve, but didn't quite know how to get started. NOW is your chance!

In addition to providing opportunities for hands-on service opportunities, we will be providing ministry tours, a lunch-and-learn program, and other helpful events for the entire family during the month of July. Our hope is that Come Serve With Us will enable you to learn how you can be involved and make a difference in the Knoxville area.

Please look over the events listed below, choose what you would like to do, and then click 'Submit and Sign Up'.  You will then be asked for your phone number (your cell number would be preferable).

You will receive an automatic email reminder from SignUp Genius two days prior to the event you registered for.  In addition, you will receive a personal email confirmation from us containing all the details of your event, including transportation information.

Transportation: we have found most people prefer to drive on their own for most of the events, especially when transporting children.  However, if you need a ride, please let us know.

Please let us know as soon as possible if you will not be able to participate in an event you signed up for.

If you have any questions or have problems signing up, please contact Karen (291-5227 or [email protected]).
