During the week  they will have a chance to participate in one of the three types of service:

  • Hands to the Ground – may include yard work, planting, weeding, gardening, clean-up and small repairs.
  • Hands in Helpful Play – may include day camp, Vacation Bible Camp, daycare, helping at children’s and/or family centers, working with disabled children or at orphanages or children’s homes.
