♦ Dream Center — yard work
♦ Lincoln Elementary School — grounds clean up /library help
♦ RIFA — soup kitchen, gardening, pantry
♦ Youth Team — repair work/yard work for seniors
♦ Prayer Team — (at church or at home) pray for project participants
♦ Operation Hope — painting and cleaning(help is needed most with this project)
♦ Singing Groups — visit nursing/retirement homes
If anyone from Aldersgate would like to help out with any of these projects, please let Jan Matthews know as soon as possible firstname.lastname@example.org , and she will coordinate with FUMC. Jan or the FUMC coordinator will give more details to those who sign up.
Consider getting a group together, picking a project, and
serving the community!
