Cassville UMC to take part in SERVE 2011
Cassville United Methodist Church members will roll up their sleeves and take part in a variety of service projects during SERVE 2011, a statewide community service effort.
The local Methodist church has planned five mission projects directed by Mission Co-Chairmen Leslie Reed and Joan Andrews.
A team of volunteers will feed dinner to the Cassville High School football team in the church fellowship hall from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Thursday.
Another team is planning to give away used clothing and offer a free hotdog lunch at the Cassville Senior Center from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 10. The public is invited to attend the event.
A maintenance crew led by Merle Rogers and Rev. Andy Lambel will complete a variety of home maintenance and repair jobs, and another team of volunteers will offer assistance with housekeeping chores on Saturday.
The Cassville United Methodist Women will offer refreshments at the church for all volunteers at 3 p.m. on Saturday.
On Sunday, Sept. 11, the church will host a bake sale. Proceeds from the sale will benefit the food pantry matching fund.
Rev. Lambel said volunteers will be asked to share personal experiences from the three-day mission event during church services on Sunday.
