Not just a worship service--it's worship THROUGH service. After a time of gathering with a hymn sing, scripture reading, and prayer time, we break up into groups to serve God by serving our neighbors. We spend two hours volunteering helping local organizations that need things that are best done by large groups during a time when they are closed (i.e., Sunday morning)--things like deep cleaning and re-stocking, big yard work projects, etc. We also have things for people who are mobility-challenged or otherwise differently abled and can't leave the church building--those people can stay in the Cosby Room and assemble various things for different agencies to have on hand when someone comes by in need, or for encouraging our neighbors.
After we finish working, we come back together to share our experiences over lunch, provided by a local small business.
It's a day of glorifying God with our labor, serving our community, and building up the body. Everyone is welcome and we are prepared for all ages, abilities, and most dietary needs. If you need childcare or a particular dietary situation, please contact the office.
We are also collecting some items that will be donated to the various agencies we work with--if you're able to help, check the newsletter for the list, and bring your donations with you at 9am on Labor Day Sunday!
