SERVING IN COMMUNITY
Service is the name of the game for the month of October. But rather than one Great Day of Service, we've created Serving in Community, a month-long pick-your-project service effort. Just think of what we can accomplish if we all join hands and work together!
Ready to make a difference in your community?
How it works:Choose from any of our service opportunities below, sign up, and let's work! Whether you join in one project or several, your effort MATTERS and you are amazing! Alternatively, if you already have a project planned (or have an idea for one), that's awesome, too! Just make sure you let Rev. Marion Brown know about it so we can support you and celebrate you!
PICK YOUR PROJECT
