SERVE DAY NOVEMBER 5

Let’s get ready to serve!  Saturday, November, we will gather to serve across our community to share the love of Christ.

Crews will be assigned to different projects in our area. When you register, you can indicate areas you are available to serve. Based on needs, you may be assigned to a different crew of your first preference, so thank you for your flexibility in meeting needs!

 

T Shirts are available if you register before Friday, October 21.
You can choose to donate $10 to cover the shirt cost. This is optional, not expected.

Details of each crew and logistics for the day:

  Schedule  
7:45 am Check-In Begins and Breakfast
8:30 am Crews Meet in Sanctuary for Overview, Logistics, and Prayer
8:50 am Crews Depart to Serve

  When Will I Know My Crew?  
Crew assignments will be sent out via email the week of the event.

  What Should I Bring?  
Dress Appropriately for your crew. Serve Day T-Shirts will be given out at registration for the first 100 who register and for those that purchase them. We recommend bringing a water bottle and snack. Most crews will be finished by noon. 

  Can I Invite Someone from Outside the Church to Serve with Me?  
You bet! In fact, we encourage it! Just help them get registered.

  Do I Have to Register?  
We need you to! We want to provide the best experience for you and for those we are serving. We can’t do that if we can’t plan well. So yes, please register. Those who do not register and show up on site will be assigned  to where the greatest need is.

  What about transportation?  
Great question! Some crews will be based from the church campus. Some will require transportation.  Once we have crews set, we will communicate to work out a transportation plan including carpooling and church vans. At registration you will be asked if you are able to provide transportation. 


  What are the different opportunities and who can serve?  
We’re glad you asked! Each crew does have a limit of people that can be assigned. One of the goals of serve day is to serve intergenerationally, so you can meet new people and build new relationships. There are some crews that are designed for your entire family to serve together. Those are indicated below.
 

Jail Ministry Crew – This crew will interact with and spend time with inmates in one of our local jail facilities and provide a cookout. In addition to cooking out, the crew will interact by playing basketball, throwing footballs and frisbees and building relationships and having Gospel conversations. Open to both men and women over the age of 21.


Meal Packing Crew – This crew will work on campus with One More Child to sort and pack 15,000 prepackaged meals for distribution in our community to families in need. Open to Adults, Students, and Children age 8 and above with a parent.

As they see people they will strike up conversation, discern needs, pray, and invite families to Easter services with invite cards. Open to all adults, students and children. Before we start, we will talk through logistics and pointers in conversation. (This is a great whole family option, and for those whose time does not allow them to commit to the full morning).
