ministry outreach day
On Saturday, March 23, St. Paul’s Church will send teams into our community to spend the day serving others. Our teams will gather at the church at 8:30 a.m. for a time of worship and then be sent out to be the hands and feet of Jesus in Greenville.
A Prayer for Mission:
Lord Jesus Christ, you stretched out your arms of love on the hard wood of the cross that everyone might come within the reach of your saving embrace: So clothe us in your Spirit
that we, reaching forth our hands in love, may bring those who do not know you to the knowledge and love of you; for the honor of your Name. Amen.
Sign Up to Serve:
Jesus calls us to reach out to our neighbors who are in need. Therefore we will spend the day providing much needed repairs to three homes for people who lack the means to do the repairs themselves. No expertise necessary! (We will be done no later than 4:00 p.m.)
We will be singing for and visiting with residents at several assisted living facilities. Our ‘set list’ will include old favorite hymns and songs from ‘back in the day’. The only rehearsal time will be Saturday morning before leaving for our first visit. We will break for lunch from 12:00 - 1:00 p.m. in order to re-energize and get to know one another. (We will conclude by 3:00p.)
Our team will spend the day at Project Host Soup Kitchen doing a complete landscape makeover. We will be removing old shrubs and plantings and putting in new shrubs, trees, annuals, and mulch. There may also be some pressure-washing and weeding work in the garden. (We will be done around 2:00 p.m.)
Donation Center Organization
Many items such as clothing, baby items, and household supplies are given to Serenity Place by the surrounding community. Our team will spend the morning working to help organize the Donation Center. (This team will work until 11:30 a.m.) Everyone is encouraged to stick around for the BBQ Lunch!
Serenity Village BBQ
An opportunity for fellowship with the women and children at Serenity Place. We will prepare and serve lunch, facilitate crafts and games for the children, and hand out ‘grab bags’ filled with personal items for the moms. (The BBQ will take place until 2:00 p.m.)
