On the third weekend of each month, we set aside time to GO + DO together. There is such a great need in our community and we have the resources to help with those needs. We can be the bridge that helps a parent keep their job, an individual have safe, reliable transportation, relieve the burden of yardwork for a widow, or finish tasks for an organization that enables them to further their ministry. We want to connect with others and our communities by meeting these tangible needs.  Each month we will have new ways to serve. Simply choose the project you would like to help with and click on the button to let us know you are coming!

If you know of someone who has a need and could use a team of people to help, please email Sarah Yajko at
