OFFERS SERVICE PROJECTS FOR PEOPLE OF ALL AGES AND ABILITIES!
Monday, January 20th, 2020
FBCGC marks Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service with the following program:
Gather in Spahr at 9:00 am. The program will conclude after lunch at 1:30 pm.
Martin Luther King Day will again be a day when we serve as hosts with friends from Church of the Master in a day ON rather than a day OFF. This day of service was started by Kay and Martin Rolfs Massaglia over ten years ago. Let’s keep this great tradition going! In keeping with Dr. Kings’s dream, the churches will work together bridging lines of age, race, gender, socio-economic status, urban/suburban on projects that benefit the church and beyond. We will not only provide service to others but the most important part of the day is the building of relationships. What a rewarding way to build on the legacy of Dr. King toward racial reconciliation and peace.
We have four different service projects that you can volunteer for this year.
This will be a family-friendly project. The group will form carpools to travel to Family Promise, a transitional housing facility for homeless families. This will be a project engaging with families and assisting kids with a craft and activities.
Open to Age 2 to 92
Leader- Carly Marino
Judson Hymn Sing
The group will travel (after forming carpools) to nearby Judson Park to sing favorite old hymns in the nursing care section. No choir experience needed, just come and enjoy singing as we bring a smile to others.
Open to children to all adults
Leader- Gwen Dyer and Liz Gockel
Lunch Bunch/Kairos Cookies
This group will remain at church to prepare a light lunch for all after the service projects and also bake delicious cookies to be used in the Kairos Cookie Ministry. Clean up after lunch as well.
