SERVE weekend

SERVE 2021

God's work. Our hands.
There are many ways to serve at Zion, in the greater community, and in the world.  In the past, SERVE weekend has been a great way to choose one, two, or a few different ways to serve with others in a concentrated few days in April.

This year, with the uncertainty of COVID-19, SERVE weekend will become 'SERVE 2021' and will continue to change throughout the next weeks. Watch for details and SERVE options to be changing throughout the spring, summer, and fall.

If you'd like to help the community during these "social distance" weeks in late March/early April, check out the "Yes! I can help!" tab.

Choose your favorite options: click the "sign up" box, tell us how many people will be serving, and be sure to list who's helping in the comments box if you're serving as a group/family.

Flex Date tasks: Outdoor project dates may vary depending on weather. You'll be contacted with specific info later in April. Other flex activities will be edited once we have date confirmations. 

Free t-shirts: Click on the SERVE T-shirt tab to order your choice of size and color. No cost, thanks to Thrivent!

If you have any questions or have ideas on other serve opportunities, please contact Kate

Thank you, Serve Weekend Comittee
