When there’s a 5th Sunday in a month, we exit the pews and enter the community in service.
We believe worship can happen anywhere, in a sanctuary or in a shelter, by singing praises or by baking cookies, with other church members or complete strangers. We live out this idea by dedicating the fifth Sunday of the month – which happens just a few times a year – by spending the day caring for our neighbors in variety of ways. We call these days of service WorKship Sundays.
Save the Date – the next WorKship Sunday is July 29!
And stay tuned for an update on our most recent WorKship Sunday, which was April 29.
WorKship Sunday, April 2018
Thanks to all for making WorKship Sunday on April 29th a success. We had a total of 130 people participate in eleven projects, 27 of which were church youth or grandchildren of members. As a result of your efforts, we sent 40 bags of toiletries to Church Street Ministries, 20-gallon sized bags of clean pill bottles to developing countries, and dozens of pairs of socks and water bottles to the homeless. Several dozen crosses were decorated with buttons for our Welcome New Visitor bags and lovely silk flower arrangements are now available for visits to home or hospital confined members. Over 100 meals in individual serving containers are being enjoyed by those who prefer not to cook or are recovering from an illness. We now have a group of newly tech-savvy members following a tutoring session with the Youth Group. Those who are unable to attend church received visits with a short communion service led by our Homebound Visitation crew. Many bags of sticks, weeds and leaves were removed from the yards of members and the grounds around our church building thanks to the Weeds and Seeds group. Notebooks of tutoring materials were assembled for use with our Saturday morning tutoring program for African refugees. Dozens of rocks were painted and will be hidden during our July WorKship to bring smiles on the faces of those who find them. The Second Mile Shop at Church Street Ministries is clean and ready for its next customers. 2,730 books were sorted and packed at the Cleveland Kids Book Bank and are being distributed to children without access to books. Finally, we enjoyed a time of fellowship, a delicious luncheon prepared by our Lunch Crew, and worship led by Pastor Leah. Thanks again!
