Serve 2020 (aka Faith In Action)
As I have shared during the announcement time of worship, we are planning to join forces with other area churches for an outreached called SERVE 2020. This is bringing together two missions from last year. One being our Faith In Action mission to the Crestview Schools that was so successful last year. And the other being Project Serve, another very successful mission to do home repairs, yard work, and other projects for folks in need in the Savanah community last year.
This joint venture includes Savanah UMC, Trinity Baptist, Bethel Baptist, Oakland Lutheran, Christ Community, and Faith. Other churches are considering joining as well! This is a tremendous opportunity for the body of Christ, the Church, to come together and be the hands and feet of Jesus!
For this to be a success, WE NEED YOU!
1. We need you to volunteer to SERVE! Consider scheduling vacation days to Serve the Community on August 7&8. That is when we will be organizing our home repair projects (as well as projects at Union ball fields and possibly at Crestview schools). And/or consider scheduling time to Serve the Schools on August 17-18. That is when we will help teachers with projects to get ready for the coming school year. To volunteer, fill out the volunteer application form attached to this email. This is super important for us to receive by July 12th so we can plan projects.
2. We need you to give to SERVE! On Sunday, July 5th we will take a special offering to financially support this outreach. You can give on Sunday, on-line on our giving page, or on the Faith app on your phone. Just designate your gift for SERVE.
3. We need you to promote SERVE! Share Facebook posts when they come out. Tell your friends about it. If you know someone you could use a helping hand, get them a resident application (attached to this email).
I am praying that this is a game-changer. I pray that SERVE 2020 will launch a new season of cooperative ministry in the Crestview community. I pray that SERVE 2020 will be a catalyst for revival. I pray that SERVE 2020 will open doors for the gospel to reach new people.
Won't you be a part of it?!?
