Community Church of Chapel Hill

2020 Community Day of Service

Let the Shenanigans begin! There are 18 different Community Day of Service projects our church has organized this year to share our love for our community on Saturday, March 7th (rain/snow date is March 14th). Here's where you can sign up to do your part!

Some service opportunities will be done physically out in the larger community (Chapel Hill, Durham, Pittsboro) while others will happen here at the church. Please review the project descriptions (or on the Community Day of Service webpage for a more detailed description) for available slots and click on the button below to sign up. You can also sign up any Sunday in February at our Community Day of Service Table. We'll be tabling at both services.

Thank you for giving your time and talent to support the many local organizations that make our world a better place!
