Mission Monday

Image uploaded from iOSThis summer we will have a few opportunities to serve our neighbors and church family as a youth group. The first Mission Monday is this Monday, June 11.

We will mow the yards of a few neighbors who Kyle has been working with. We will meet at 8:30 AM at the EPICenter so we can try to beat the heat. We will be mowing and doing other yard work for a couple of hours. We need four to eight Sr Highers to get the jobs done.  We should be done by no later than 11 AM after which, you will be treated to a Sonic lunch or a Slushie if you’re not hungry (so we’ll probably be back around noon)***.

  • What: Mowing / Yard Work / Service
  • When: Monday, June 11 – 8:30 AM – Noon?
  • Where: Meet at the EPICenter
  • Who: Sr. High

***If you need to come late or leave early, we can get you an address of where we are working.

Please sign up here if you can help!

If you have a mower or trimmer you want to bring, we can get the jobs done faster 🙂
