Our Mission Committee at FUMCWA began planning Second Saturday Servants late in the spring to create an opportunity for our congregation to regularly go out into the world and serve along with other disciples in missions where we have provided monitory support with our coins of love loose change offering and other connectional giving. We seek to use our hands alongside others.
In September a small group worked at United Methodist Children Services, and in October, we joined up with another congregation at Northcott Neighborhood House. In November, some of us will serve at the Milwaukee Rescue Mission, and I hope to get a small crew at Northcott on the same day to help with a project there.
These opprtunities to go out into the world really help us to grow. Of this, I am sure. Second Saturday Servants provides a meaningful way to serve God by serving those in need. Everyone is welcome to participate; you do not have to be a church member. Workers may choose from one or two projects that typically last two to four hours. You can choose from projects that will take place at the church or beyond the church walls in the area.
It is my dream that this will get bigger and involve more and more people in growth each month over the next twenty or thirty months.
