West End United Methodist Church

2015 Great Day of Service


On Saturday, March 28 at 8 a.m., we'll gather as a church to go into the community to serve.  This marks our 4th Great Day of Service, so come celebrate with us!  Last year, we had just over 100 people participate.  Our goal for 2015 is to double that number and gather 200 people to serve at the same time!

All ages are invited and encouraged to participate--this is a great way for small groups, Sunday school classes and families to serve together! (Childcare will be provided for ages 4 and under.)
