Serving Safely and Serving Together
The New Year gives us a chance to try a new approach to our fifth Sunday tradition: DIY Service Worship!
Instead of gathering on campus and having prolonged interaction with folks outside your "pod," you can select from a menu of service projects to work on by yourself or within your family bubble. (See the lists below the registration form or this PDF.)
Choose to create one item in the project list or create five or ten kits for each project (!) -- it’s up to you.
Please include a hand-written note with each of your kits. It needn’t be detailed: “Caring thoughts and prayers for your health and God’s blessings in 2021. In Christ’s love, [first name] at West Valley Church” is fine. We want to make sure that the folks receiving these projects are acknowledged with dignity and the love of Jesus.
Please register your participation with the online form (below) so that we can know how to plan.
