Serve to the Max Project Ideas

Posted by Chris Anderson on

1) Look through these lists of potential service projects, sorted alphabetically by category.
2) When you find a project you’re interested in, you can find detailed information at our display in the church Atrium.
3) Make sure you write down all the relevant information for your project(s)! Pick up a Take Home Sheet.
4) After you’ve completed your projects, please fill out the “I Served to the Max!” sheet (available at the Atrium display) with project details and a picture (optional) from your project—bring this back to church and return it to Chris Anderson, or at the Welcome Center.
5) HAVE FUN AND SERVE OTHERS!
