On the morning of a Serve Sunday after the 7:45 and 10:00 AM worship services, we will be commissioned and sent out in the world around us to serve and to listen to our neighbors. There will be a variety of opportunities for service that parishioners will be invited to sign up for ahead of time. There will also be an opportunity to serve for families with young children and those with limited mobility. The invitation is really to be the church in the neighborhoods beyond our walls.
