Methodist Men’s Day of Service

Projects are needed for the next DoS. Be on the lookout for single parents or seniors who are on a limited income and may have some type of small projects (we will evaluate the large requests) that would make a difference in their lives and homes. At our last DoS, we did yard work, replaced some vinyl siding and addressed some safety issues on our church playground.

The next Day of Service is scheduled for Saturday, July 26. You are welcome to join us at Jack’s for breakfast around 7 am. Be at the church at 8 am sharp for assignments.
