Save the Date for Sept. 4 Serving Day

Rise_and_Build_Serving_Day_2016_WebOne of the most rewarding things Connect did in 2015 was take part in our Rise and Build Serving Day when we closed our doors on a Sunday and went out into the community to BE the church.

Well, we are doing it again!

We are once again planning a massive Serving Day during Labor Day weekend in which we will spend a Sunday going to work — literally — all over town. As Mike has often said, sometimes the last thing we need to do is listen to one more Bible study or sing one more Christian song. Sometimes we just need to go and serve someone. Well, here is your chance. And here is your kids’ chance to do just that. We are working closely with Clermont Senior Services to identify those in our community who need a helping hand, then we’ll be going to their homes to dig in and help them with tasks around their house. We are also sending a crew to WT Elementary to help spruce up the school where we meet.

Please plan to join us on Sunday, Sept. 4, for our Rise and Build Serving Day. Instead of meeting at the school, we will meet at the big shelter at the Batavia Township Park at 8:30 a.m. for donuts. We’ll have a brief service at 9 a.m., and we’ll plan to be at our various serving locations by 10 a.m.

Any questions? Please talk to Jay & Melissa Hess, who are coordinating things.

Like last year, we will be coordinating projects through our Connect Groups, so stay tuned for more. If you aren’t yet part of a Connect Group that meets regularly, no worries, we’ll get you plugged into a project (and an awesome team) that fits.

Please use hashtag #RiseandBuild2016 in social media posts.

Watch last year’s media coverage of this event.

Remember: We are moving to two services at 9:30 and 11 a.m. on Sept. 11.
