Volunteers Needed This Weekend!

What: Serve the City! We'll be staffing two projects: Nathan's house and Faith Christian Fellowship car wash. At Nathan's house we'll be hanging drywall, spackling, taping, painting, cleaning, and perhaps planting. At Faith Christian Fellowship we'll be washing, drying, cleaning, detailing, vacuuming cars, and interacting with Baltimore folks.
When:Meet at the church at 8am to split into the two groups. Return to the church by 6:15pm
Where: The Faith Christian Fellowship group will be working at 505 E. 42nd Street Baltimore, MD 21218 and Nathan's house is in Randallstown, coming from the west you take a right on Chapman and then a right on Colorado and it's the first house on your right. We will be meeting for dinner at the Virginia S. Baker Rec. Center at Patterson Park 27 south Patterson Park Avenue, Baltimore, at 4:30 for a celebration and catered Outback dinner.
Who: Youth, Families, drivers, friends, christians and non-christians welcome.
How Much: $10 suggested donation. Make checks out to "Chapelgate Presbyterian Church"
Why: Referring to himself, Jesus said, "The son of man came not to be served but to serve and to give his life as a ransom for many." And since the servant is not greater than his master, we too should come to serve and not to be served.
What else: Wear your "Serve the City" T-shirts if you have one. Bring a paintbrush, gloves, or a rag. Oh, and a bag lunch is already provided for you.
