We have five great projects for Go! Sunday 2018, outlined below. Don’t forget to sign up in the Gathering Space.
Blanket Making (FDP Gathering Space) – Mary Dingus will lead this project to make 9 – 10 fleece tie-blankets for children at Children’s Hospital. No sewing skills needed! If you have good cloth-cutting scissors or shears, please bring them. We need 10 – 12 volunteers for this project. Community Garden (FDP Garden) – Jim Gerst will lead this project to prepare our Community Garden for the spring planting season. FDP donates some of the food grown in our garden to Circle of Concern, where we also donate food through our Feeding Our Flock food collection each month. This group will help prepare the top soil and get the garden ready for spring planting. Bring gardening tools and gloves if you have them. We need 8 – 10 volunteers for this project. Lydia’s House (Location will be provided to team) – Erica Abbett will lead this project. We will meet at the Lydia’s House corporate offices and then travel to our work location, where we will do light yard work (mulching, weeding), planting of potted flowers and general clean up in the front yard. FDP will provide flowers, planters and mulch. Please bring yard work and gardening tools, gloves. We need 8 – 10 volunteers for this project. Buddy Packs (FDP Fellowship Hall/Basement) – Gina Bright will lead this project, which will include packing 100-plus Buddy Packs for April delivery, plus doing inventory of current Buddy Pack supplies and cleaning and organizing the Buddy Pack storage closet and room. We need 8 – 10 volunteers for this project. Provident Mental Health Awareness Ribbon Making (FDP Adult Discussion Room) – May is Mental Health Awareness Month. Barb Abbett will lead this project to make 500 green Mental Health Awareness ribbons that Provident, which provides mental health counseling and suicide prevention/intervention support, will send to friends, donors and staff in early May. Provident will provide ribbon and safety pins for this project. Please bring scissors for this project. We need 6 – 8 volunteers for this project. Lunch Makers – We need five people to make lunches for our Go! Sunday volunteers. Each lunch maker will be assigned to a Go! Sunday project and will pack lunches for the number of people signed up for that project. Lunches can be lunch meat sandwiches and should include a small piece of fruit and small bag of chips. Numbers will be communicated to lunch makers by Thursday, April 5. Bottled Water – We are also looking for people to donate approximately 80 bottles of water (2 bottles per volunteer) for our Go! Sunday volunteers. Please contact Erica Abbett if you can donate water and let her know how many bottles you will provide.
Worship on Go! Sunday will be at 10 a.m. and is a brief commissioning service before going out to serve; coffee and doughnuts will be available at 9:30 am.
