FAPC Serves returns on Saturday, May 5!
Once a year, the congregation of Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church comes together on a single Saturday to bear witness to the love of Christ. Over the past six years, more than 500 members and friends of the congregation have participated in FAPC Serves. This day of service has become one of the most looked-forward-to Outreach events of the year.
The day begins with registration, starting at 8 am in the LaDane Williamson Christian Education Center. There will be breakfast and a commissioning service for all volunteers upon arrival. Afterward, volunteers will meet with their team leaders, head to their work sites and work until early afternoon.
What's this event about?
FAPC Serves was created by the Outreach Committee as a means of:
- Encouraging community service.
- Highlighting the multi-generational aspect of service.
- Strengthening our ties with a local partner in ministry.
- Demonstrating the love of Christ by volunteering time and talent.
- Learning from the organizations we partner with.
- Experiencing God in new and exciting ways.
Here's how you can be part of it.
STEP 1 - CHOOSE A SITE
Read about all seven work site projects on the next tab (click here), and think about where you would like to participate. You may participate individually, or as a family. (Children under age 13 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.)
STEP 2 - SIGN UP ONLINE
On the sign-up form, we will ask you to identify your top three choices of where you will spend the day. We will make every effort to assign you to the site of your choice, but it's first come/first served, so sign up early! Once you are assigned to a project, your team leader will be in touch with you.
The deadline to sign up is Saturday, April 28.
STEP 3 - CHECK IN & GO!
Please plan to arrive at the LaDane Williamson Christian Education Center by 8 am on Saturday, May 5. You will check in with your team and receive your t-shirt that morning.
