Our roving reporter Kelly takes a closer look at the Feeding America truck and the work involved in hosting it.
Lots of all of the above when several groups tackled cleaning up various vacant lots. Fortunately the popsicles came with corny jokes and the kids brought their sense of humor.
The last work day: wheelchair ramps and house painting projects were finished, more lots cleaned, and the Barnabus team stopped by with drumstick ice cream cones.
Join us for the annual SERVE talent show.
All the work is done, so we have a nice formal dinner to celebrate. Ever seen your friends/loved ones in a dress shirt? Here’s the chance…
Beige on white – not exciting but greatly appreciated by the future residents of this Rescue Mission transitional house. The team even seems to have gotten most of the paint on the walls instead of each other 🙂
Tuesday night monster ice cream sundaes, finished wheelchair ramps, slugs so big you could ride them, partying at the Feeding America truck, and four foot-long drill bits. They’re all here in Wednesday’s slideshow!
The construction team begins an extreme porch makeover, removing the rotting screens and previous structure to make way for the new and improved.
Join us for a night of high-energy worship.
Join us as the groups get back from one of the hottest work days of the week.
Habitat for Humanity needed a shed for one of their housing projects, so SERVE delivers! The crew constructed the shed from scratch, essentially building a mini-house from the ground up.
When it comes to running a web site, you can have too much of a good thing. Which is what happened yesterday; we had so much traffic to the webcam watching the kids come back from the work sites that it crashed. My apologies: I’ll have that fixed for today’s mail call, at 4:00 PM EDT.
Photos are pouring in from all over: painting at Sacred Suds, a local lighthouse, a canoe brigade doing river cleanup, building a Habitat for Humanity shed… whew! The kids are doing a great job of working hard and reaching out to the communities they find themselves in.
Wait, no, that’s not right. Fortunately the group was actually picking up trash.
Today saw our roving reporter visiting some of the most remote work sites, from picking up trash along Lake Michigan to working in the woods at Grace Adventures. Along the way she discovered one participant’s most anticipated work site, that volleyball is a rough sport, and one shocking confession.
With a few bonus photos from Sunday’s trip to the beach.
After the first work day…
We’ve finished our live broadcast of tonight’s evening session. Come back tomorrow around 6:30 PM EDT to join in the worship.
The night started out with bananas and ended in a great worship time challenging the kids for the week ahead.
A look at what makes SERVE projects special.
A slideshow from the last work day; don’t be fooled, as there was also plenty of fun.
Since Thursday is the last work day we typically have a nice dinner for the Serve participants to come back after a week of hard work. It was also a good opportunity to let the kids ham it up for the camera (again).
