Haymarket Church Spring Service Day
You are invited to serve your community with Haymarket Church! Haymarket Church will host our third annual Spring Service Day on the morning of Saturday, April 14. We will meet at the Old Bank Building (14951 Washington Street, Haymarket), and then head out into the community to partner with local organizations and make a difference in our community. There will be opportunities for people of all ages and stages of life to serve, so plan to bring the whole family to serve together.
Projects will include yard cleanup and outdoor projects with some of our local non-profit partners, sorting donated clothes for an organization that works with populations who are homeless and/or struggling with poverty, writing and delivering cards to residents at a local health and rehabilitation facility who don’t get many visits, trail cleanup at a local nature conservancy, supporting the Haymarket Regional food pantry, helping to provide shoes and jobs for people in Uganda, making cards for people in our community, and more! More details on time and projects will be coming soon, but be sure to mark your calendar and save the date!
In order to help us get a sense of how much food/supplies we need to have on hand, we are asking people to sign up for the event. This is just an estimate – so, if you don’t sign up, you are still welcome to attend. But, if you are planning to attend, please register here, so that we can be sure to be ready for you!
