WHY WE SERVE:
For questions, contact the SERVE admin
We are planning more SERVE opportunities! Check back later for more details.
I want to participate in SERVE Day but I am not in a Small Group?
Find a Small Group - Not only is it one of the best ways to get involved in our Serve Day, it also helps to get a group connected and serving on additional serve opportunities! While one person ready to serve is amazing, sometime many hands are needed to get an opportunity off the ground. You can find a small group by searching our Small Groups Directory. Most groups are open to new members throughout the semester, so feel free to contact the Small Group Leader that best fits your interests, meeting location, and time preference.
What if I don’t have serve opportunity selected and my small group wants to serve?
Our hope is that each Small Group plans and participates in a Serve Day project!
If your Small Group is in need of project ideas, view our Serve Day Project Guide or get involved in one of the opportunities provided by the SERVE team (listed above).
How do I plan a serve project?
Let's get creative! Assess the needs of people in your neighborhood and in our local communities and plan a project that meets those needs. Check out our list of Project Ideas below, and other options from local service organizations for ways to get involved. Learn more about project planning in our Serve Day Project Guide.
How do I communicate to the church which serve day project our group is planning?
We’d love to know how your group plans to participate in Serve Day. Let the SERVE team know what you are planning by them.
Who Pays the Costs Associated With Our Small Group’s Serve Project?
Each Small Group is responsible for the costs associated with their Serve Day project. We recommend spending time planning your project based on your group’s size and commitment level.
What Should I Bring On Serve Day?
Bring any personal items you may need during your project: Serve Day T-shirt, sunscreen, drinking water, sneakers, a hat, etc. Your Small Group Leader can confirm any project-specific items you may need to bring: gloves, rakes, lawnmowers, tarps, work tools, etc. Work clothes are a good idea for serve opportunities requiring physical labor, and we recommend not wearing jewelry.
How Will the Church Communicate Additional Details About Serve Day?
Small Group Leaders and Co-Leaders will receive weekly emails with Serve Day updates. Updates will also be made available through our Turning Point Website and Mobile App.
What If We Have Bad Weather Conditions?
If your Serve Day project is outside, make plans to have an inclement weather option available. Some possibilities include visiting a nursing home, serving at a local service organization, or cleaning classrooms at a local school. For indoor serve ideas, view our list of Project Ideas.
