SEPTEMBER 25 FROM 2 - 6 PM
PLEASE SIGN UP BY TUESDAY SEPT 20
This is a day when teams from Calvary go all over our community doing projects - some outside and some inside - hard labor and not so hard labor - but all to love our community in the name of Jesus. Sign up for the project team you want to be a part of. If all the projects you want are filled, sign up under general projects and we will add some more projects.
Meet at the church at 2 pm for instructions and prayer, and then head out with your team. We will also have some work around the church for those not on community projects.
NOTE: If you are bringing kids with you to a project please do not individually register them because it will confuse the capacities for the number of people needed for each project. When you register there is a space to include names and ages of kids who are participating.
Afterward, we will all meet back at the church at 5:45 pm for free pizza and a time of sharing stories and pictures from your team project.
