Hand in Hand is an event that gives us the chance to worship God by serving others. This worship can look like yard work, light housekeeping, cleaning up natural areas or roadsides, or whatever is needed where we are!

On Saturday we will be divided into work groups, and will work at different sites. We will be doing general cleanup; yard work and cleanup for elderly homebound; and small home repairs.
On Saturday evening we'll process the day and begin to think of ways to carry forward our experience.
