The Grove values taking responsibility for our community, so on Sunday, September 30th, 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?
Both projects could be kid-friendly depending on the kid, but the “Family Fun Fall Fest” 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 Western Heights. With the Family Fun Fall Fest, volunteers are welcome to eat the lunch we will be serving in connection with the project.
Adrian Burnett Elementary Family Fun Fall Fest
For the past year, we’ve been serving the staff and families of the school in various ways, and now, we are going to partner with the school to create a fun, family friendly event. We’ll provide various games, activities, and food, but our end goal is to further connect with the people (both school staff and families). We’re praying God opens doors for great conversations and connections so we can demonstrate and declare the love of Jesus in a natural way!
Western Heights/Inner City Work Projects
During our previous For The City Sundays, we’ve served the community of Western Heights in various ways, but this time, we’re going to roll up our sleeves and do some physical work that will leave a lasting impression. Projects will include painting, landscaping, improvements to the basketball court, and more.
