Meadowbrook LOVES

October 9, 2021

Don’t miss your chance to share God’s love! We are hosting another Meadowbrook LOVES all-church missions event on Saturday, October 9th beginning at 8:15 am. Meadowbrook financially supports many Christian agencies locally, domestically and globally. This is OUR chance to SHOW UP in person and help our local agencies accomplish projects where they need more person-power.

 

Look at the various opportunities to serve listed below. Note the locations; details of the project; and estimated length of time. If you try to sign-up with a particular agency and you can’t, this means that project has reached its capacity. Please try another agency. PLEASE SIGN UP BY October 3.

 

We are asking each person to purchase a $5 t-shirt and wear it October 9th. These are the SAME red t-shirts that we wore in May (so if you’ve already purchased one, you don’t need to again).     

If you want to purchase a shirt click HERE.
