JULY 17, 2021
Serve Day is an amazing opportunity to bless others and to be blessed as we go out into our communities to show the love of Christ through real and tangible ways. We urge everyone who calls Cornerstone their church to get involved this year.
We also encourage Small Group Leaders to think about a project their group will get involved with this year. They can also choose a project of their own and register their group’s project with us for Serve Day. If you are not part of a Small Group this summer, there are plenty of Serve Day projects to participate in and we would love for you to join us.
This year we have more than a dozen ways that you can serve. We need people with skills in painting, planting, and people who can sweep, clean, and organize. Whatever your skill or ability we can use you to make a difference by serving our community.
If you have any questions, please reach out to Pastor Rich at

WHAT IS SERVE DAY?
Serve Day is our annual outreach event that happens every Summer. It is an exciting opportunity for us, the local church, to go into our communities and love our neighbors. This summer, whether through a Small Group or by joining a Serve Day project, come be a part of serving our communities and sharing the love of Jesus through simple, practical acts of kindness.
Can I PLAN A SERVE PROJECT with my small group or others?
Yes! If you or a small group you are connected with would like to do a project here are some steps you can take. First, get creative! Assess the needs of people in your neighborhood or in your local community and plan a project that meets those needs. Check out our list of ideas and other options from local service organizations for ways to get involved. If you are planning a project, please let us know!! Email Pastor Rich at .
WHAT time should I arrive on saturday and how long will it be?
We ask that participants arrive at the church no later than 8:15 a.m. We meet at the church, sign in, grab a Serve Day T-Shirt, pray and head out to our projects.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING ON SERVE DAY?
Bring any personal items you may need during your project: Serve Day T-shirt, sunscreen, drinking water, sneakers, a hat, etc. Our project leaders can confirm any project-specific items you may need to bring: gloves, rakes, lawnmowers, tarps, work tools, etc. Work clothes are a good idea for serve opportunities requiring physical labor, and we recommend not wearing jewelry.
WHAT IF IT RAINS?
If your Serve Day project is outside, we are planning to have July 31 as a rain date for those projects. If your project is indoors, we will plan to meet and serve those projects. If you are working with your small group, you could have an alternative available. Some possibilities include visiting a nursing home, serving at a local service organization, or cleaning classrooms at a local school.
