Community Outreach’s Spring Serve Day on April 17 brought families and friends together across 10 cities, to serve throughout 12 different ministry projects at nine separate locations.
This was the first serve day to be held in the spring and many volunteers say this opportunity gave them a chance to make a difference in their city while meeting so many new faces! One family, who is new to Perimeter Church, commented how Spring Serve Day gave them a chance to meet new neighbors while also serving in the community.
Over 200 volunteers spent their Saturday working on various projects from senior and welcome baskets to teacher appreciation cards for school teachers to sprucing up the Wellspring Living yard with a vegetable garden and room makeovers.
“We so appreciate all the hard work and support that went into making these projects happen. The yard looks great! The ladies who worked in these rooms this morning did a wonderful job! When the women, who call these rooms home, saw it they were so happy and excited,” said Kerrionne Phillips with Wellspring Living.
Additionally, volunteers helped organize and stock the North Gwinnett COOP food pantry. Fully Furnished Ministries volunteers also helped with furniture deliveries and furniture refinishing.
Volunteers got their hands dirty creating colorful flower pots for Mother’s Day with the ministry, Meals by Grace. The flower pots will be part of the meals delivered to families in need of food.
“It was a beautiful day of fellowship and service and I pray the Lord uses our efforts to love on mothers, both with our gifts and His Word!” said Liz Draper, volunteer with the project.
Nearly 30 volunteers also helped pass out spring clothes and food to families in the Norcross area with Hope Thru Soap. Located in the parking lot of Homefirst, families got much-needed pantry items as well as clothing for warmer weather.
