|On April 30th, our church had the privilege of serving our neighbors at Lockmar Elementary School by providing almost 40 volunteers to help run their annual "Spring Fling."
This year, there were a couple dozen game booths, five huge bounce houses, food, face painting, and we saw a whole lot of smiles and laughter. A few hundred students, parents, and faculty members showed up. What a success!
Over the past couple years, Covenant has been in the process of asking how we can make more of an impact in our community by serving the families and community right around us.
Pastor Jerry Klemm's discipleship group took on the task of mobilizing volunteers from Covenant to man booths, cook and serve food, and help set up and tear down. What a great example of a small group serving our community!
We intend to continue helping Lockmar with this event in the coming years. In addition, later this year, we will also be looking for volunteers to help them with their reading and math tutoring programs starting in the Fall semester. More to come on that!
If you are interested in helping with any of this in the future, or if you would like to discuss ideas about how your small group can serve the community, please contact our Local Missions Pastor, Jonathan Culley at (321) 727-2661, or firstname.lastname@example.org.
