Come sing and pray during a brief worship service, and then join a project or two for an hour of hands-on work in support of our local community. If you can’t be there in person, your service could be in the form of a donation to the bag lunches.
Prep Work for Quilts for Formerly Incarcerated Men: Join Janet McDonald in making backings and bindings for 60 quilts that will be lovingly given to formerly incarcerated men who will be living in a converted hotel.

Email Janet with questions: [email protected]
Valentines for SNAPkids: Share a little fun love with the SNAPkids participants. Join Sara Woods and Emma Fujii in creating valentines for the swimmers with disabilities and their swim partners.
