we are called to love God, and love our neighbors! so this summer, we're setting aside an afternoon to do just that -- then joining together for a fun bbq meal on the east lawn at fpc, at 5!
Projects will fall within the 1-5pm time window (except the meal team!)
Please read through the project list below to identify the way you wish to serve on this day. You may sign-up on the clipboards at church or on Sign-Up Genius. You will be contacted by the project coordinator for your project with the specific timing, logistics and other details for your project. If we don’t have enough volunteers for a given project, we will cancel and ask those that did volunteer to shift to a different project.
