What is Blue Jean Servant Saturday?
It’s a time of sharing Sabbath joy by going out into our community to serve the Lord by serving our neighbors.
What do we do on Blue Jean Servant Saturday?
We come to worship in our work clothes, and after worship & lunch we place you with a work team. Team leaders will guide their groups to pre-assigned job sites where we will work for about 3-4 hours.
How can you be a part of Blue Jean Servant Saturday?
Share the jobsite application with those who need a helping hand!!!!
A sign-up sheet for volunteers to work at job sites will be posted on the bulletin board soon. We will contact you the week before the event to let you know more about your job site and what tools, if any, are required for the job site.
What sorts of tasks do we do on Blue Jean Servant Saturday?
We can clean gutters, do yard work, wash windows, clean house, do small painting jobs, rake leaves, do minor house repairs, AND we visit with the residents we meet on these days of celebration. We ask homeowners provide materials (e.g. paint, wood, mulch, etc.).
We do not recruit members or charge for our service, nor do we accept “donations” for our church.
Where do the work sites come from?
Our “assignments” come from individuals like you YOU! If you know someone who could use a helping hand, please ask them to fill out a confidential application. The deadline for job site applications is September 29th!!! Once we receive the application, we will schedule a visit to assess our ability to help. You may fill out an application here, click this link for a paper application, or pick one up in the church office.
Applications are due by Sunday, September 29.
