On March 24, 2019, Compass Church will be canceling services and we will spend that morning serving our city through community service projects. We will be painting, pulling weeds, serving lunches, packing boxes and various other activities that will allow us to BE the church to the West Valley.
How to get involved:
There are three ways we are asking the people of Compass to be involved in this event:
1) Purchase items for projects that require donations to complete them (see more info below).
2) Sign up for a project (see more info below or click here to see the project list)!
2) Show up and serve!
Sign-Ups for the various projects will be available soon. Keep your eye out for those and sign up to be a part of this event! We encourage you to sign up with your Connection Group or good friends - it's more fun to serve together!
We have two projects which require donations:
1) Veteran's Home Start Kits - This project is for the VETERANS FURNITURE CENTER, a volunteer-based, veteran run, local not-for-profit dedicated to assisting formerly homeless veterans to transition to permanent housing by providing them, free of charge, new furniture and household goods they need to make a home and return to society. These Start Kits will provide basic necessities to veterans - laundry soap, dish soap, cleaners, etc. as they are moved into their home.
2) Welcome Bags for Foster Children- This project is for CHRISTIAN FAMILY CARE, a local organization that partners with families and churches to provide comprehensive adoption and foster care services, along with extensive counseling and support programs for children, families, and women struggling with unplanned pregnancies. These welcome bags will provide necessities and a few comforts for children who have been removed from the home and who often only have the clothes they are wearing. They include toothbrush/toothpaste, comb/brush, a stuffed animal etc
We will be collecting donations in the weeks leading up to Inside Out and then boxes and bags will be packed that Sunday. We are coordinating and tracking donations through Sign-up Genius. Please click below to donate items for these worthy causes!
