Community Service SabbathThis Sabbath, March 31, 2018, is Community Service Sabbath at the University City Seventh-day Adventist Church. Please take note of the following:
- Sabbath Schools will meet on their normal schedule: Song Service at 9:30 AM, Classes from 9:45-10:45 AM.
- There will be a short (10-15 minute) worship service at 11 AM. We will leave from the worship service for the various service projects (except for those taking the morning shift at Servant's Heart - see below).
- Make sure you have a plan for lunch since it will not be provided for you. We recommend bringing a sack lunch - something that is portable and easy to eat on the go.
- Dress for activity and service, not for sitting in church. It's supposed to be sunny with temperatures in the 60's at around noon. Jeans and sweatshirts are just fine.
- There are at least three major projects you can participate in:
We are looking forward to serving with you on Sabbath!
- Make care packages for the homeless (packages to be delivered at a future date) - this group will stay at the church. This option probably has the most flexibility. Stay for 30 minutes or an hour or two. No need to bring supplies as they will be provided.
- Feed the homeless. This option involves putting together some nice sack lunches and then taking them to Uptown for distribution. We will be making 50 lunch bags for our homeless neighbors that will include: 2 sandwiches, chips, dessert, fruit, water and soda. Assembly of the bags will take place at the church then we will take them to downtown to pass them out. Please be sure to wear comfortable walking shoes.
If you are planning to participate, please use the following sign up sheet to indicate what supplies you will bring: http://www.signupgenius.com/go/60b0b4fa5aa22a4fc1-homeless
- Sort donations and clean at Servant's Heart in Mint Hill. Servant's Heart is a ministry that provides assistance to those in need and they operate a "Community Boutique" thrift store. Volunteers are needed for two different shifts: 10 AM - 1:30 PM and 1:15 PM - 5:30 PM. The address for Servant's Heart is 9229 Lawyers Rd, Mint Hill and it is next to the Dollar General.
