Service Day

2019 Service Day

We will be joining forces with our friends at Southminster Church again for our Annual Service Day. This year it will be on Saturday, April 27. This is a great opportunity to serve others and do good in our community as we plant, clean, paint, wash, assist, move, and otherwise serve several local organizations including: WINGS, Little City, Journeys, Shelter Inc., Clearbrook, and Caring Outreach Ministry at First Pres. We will gather at First Pres in Fellowship Hall at 8:00 am for refreshments and final instructions from the location captains. We will then proceed to the various sites. Families and children are welcomed, and child care will be provided for younger children from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm. We expect to finish before 1:00 pm. Please sign up no later than April 13 to ensure you get a Service Day T-Shirt.
