What does it mean to BE the church? One way we can BE the church is by serving others and sharing God’s love with them. On Saturday, September 30, you will have the opportunity to BE the church in our community. We’ll meet at 8:30 am for communion and a brief devotion at our South-City Site before breaking up into groups to work on projects both at The Connection and in the community. All are welcome. Invite your friends to SERVE DAY. Nursery care will be available at The Connection. Please indicate nursery care needs on the sign-up form or call (314) 991-0546.
Please wear closed-toed shoes and comfortable clothing. Every effort will be made to assign you to your preferred selection, however due to limits by the mission agencies, adjustments may be necessary. Projects that are kid-friendly are indicated by an asterisk.
