Compassion Mercy Justice Sunday is on August 27. Join us as we go out into the community to share God’s love for people through service. We’ll do projects all over the Gig Harbor/Pierce County area. There won't be any worship gatherings at either campus this Sunday. Instead, we encourage you to sign up below for one of the opportunities to serve. Plan to join us for the barbecue after your project at 12:30 p.m. at Central Campus.
SCHOOL CLEAN UPS
Evergreen Elementary School
Cleaning up their Wildwoods learning area! Dig blackberry roots, plant trees, and cover bare areas with mulch. Perfect timing to get things spruced up for the students' return.
Purdy Elementary School
Painting lines for 4 square and weeding around koi pond.
Harbor Ridge Middle School
Grounds clean up including removing of tall grass, laying bark, planting flowers, weeding, and power washing
NW Furniture Bank
IKEA & other furniture assembly
Some of this may be done upstairs at Hope Furnishings – as you know, some children are really great at this with a parent/adult partner. Some on our build tables, some on banquet tables.
Linen Sorting (rolling & tying towels, folding sheets, etc.)
Great for kids/families/wheelchair tables, etc. We will set up some banquet tables which should be chair/wheelchair accessible for people if needed.
Karl and Cynthia are disabled with back and respiratory problems, however they will be working alongside as best they can. We will be cutting a pile of logs into rounds, splitting them with a wood splitter and then stacking the wood close to the house. It is also possible that a load of firewood will be delivered, in which case we’ll stack that wood as well. A great opportunity for families with kids age 10 or older as the kids can help a lot with stacking.
Tacoma Rescue Mission
We’re going to serve at the rescue mission from 6:00 - 9:00 a.m. for the breakfast shift. We’ll do it all, prepping, cooking, cleaning, and loving the people there. Must have closed toed shoes.
Habitat For Humanity
We'll be helping out where needed! Could be landscaping, finish work, framing -- that's the fun of Habitat -- you never know what you might be doing! Must be at least 16 years old. If you have not been to a Habitat orientation, contact Alison Paradise (email@example.com). More details available closer to the date.
COMMUNITY GARDEN CLEAN UP
Great opportunity for families with little kids and their friends.
We need help weeding the entire community garden at Harbor Covenant Central Campus, build and paint a compost pile cover and weed the walk way beds along the driveway to the Gathering Plafe entrance. This can be a great option to bring your preschoolers along with you and serve together.
