SERVE WEEK

SERVE WEEK

Serve Week began over 5 years ago with a desire to DO SOMETHING big in our community as a church. Throughout the year, Calvary has many opportunities to Love the 419, but Serve Week is the special time that we set aside to come together as a church and work together. This year, we are excited to come back home to our own part of the 419 – Maumee! No matter your age, schedule, or skill, there is a project for you!

What to Bring

We ask that each family or individual bring a case of water to donate to the week along with any project specific supplies you might need. If you would like to do a specific Project, see below for additional supplies needed. Remember that you will be outside – water, sunscreen, and a snack are good items to bring along.

What to Wear

Comfortable clothes that you can work in and your red Love the 419 shirt. If you don’t have a shirt, you can pick one up when you check in on the day you serve.

Do I Need to Sign Up?

If you find you’re free at the last minute and didn’t have a chance to sign up, you are still welcome at Serve Week! If you did sign up but can’t make it, you do not need to notify someone.

What if it Rains?

Yes! Serve Week is still on, even if we may not be able to complete all scheduled projects as planned.

Is Serve Week Family-Friendly?

Yes. However, you know your kid better than we do. No childcare is provided. You will be solely responsible for your child. Kids (8th grade and under) must stay with the adult that brought them.

Projects

Each project is designed to be a blessing to those in Maumee and let our community know they are welcome at Calvary! When we love with no strings attached, we are able to be an example of 1 John 4:19. Each day, projects will begin at 5:30pm for individual or group participation. Be sure to note the suggested age requirement for each project! **All kids (under the age of 13) must stay with the adult who brought them to Serve Week. (Due to overwhelming interest, some projects are now closed for registration.)
