2019 Service Projects

In 2018, United in Faith's Council and United in Faith's Ministry Directors made the recommendation that we as a congregation should continue to do service and mission projects in our area (much like we did for our 20For2O's). With that in mind, Pastor Carla has scheduled two volunteer opportunities in the months ahead you might want to jump on board with. We can usually work out carpools if you don't have your own transportation.

Watch the newsletter and bulletins for information on registering for either event.
