The Grove values taking responsibility for our community, so on Sunday, July 29th, we’re uniquely focusing our efforts on serving our city and community rather than doing Sunday as normal. We’ll have a brief, modified service from 10:30-11:00, and then, we’ll be heading out into the community and city to serve others. Read below to find out more about our pre-planned opportunities, and then RSVP to do your part in helping us be a church that exists FOR THE CITY and FOR GOD’S GLORY!
How long will the projects last?
We’ll leave from the church building at 11:00 to go to each location. Projects will last about two hours plus cleanup, so each team should wrap up around 2:30. If you need to leave early, then just coordinate that with the team leader so they can plan appropriately.
Which project is kid-friendly?
All projects could be kid-friendly depending on the kid, but the “Western Heights” and “Back-t0-School” opportunities will give kids a chance to hang out and play with other kids. As a parent, you know your kid best, so just give it some thought. We believe this can be a great opportunity for families to serve together.
What about lunch?
Pizza will be provided for the volunteers at the school. With the other opportunities, volunteers are welcome to eat the lunch we will be serving in connection with the project.
Adrian Burnett Elementary Work Projects
We’ll be doing various tasks such as painting, cleanup, landscaping, etc around the school to help them prepare for the new school year.
Western Heights/Inner City
Step outside of our Halls community and spend time with the kids and families of Western Heights. In connection with their local ministry center, we’ll be grilling hamburgers, playing games, and interacting with families. This will also give you a chance to see if God would lead you to go back and serve or mentor in Western Heights on a consistent basis.
Back-to-School Family Event at the YMCA
We’ll be providing a back-to-school event for families at the YMCA in Halls from 1:00pm-3:00pm that’ll provide everyone with free access to the pool, waterslide inflatables, hot dogs, and more. This will be a great opportunity for us to follow-up with families from the sports camp and even connect with new families.
