CAN I INVITE OTHER PEOPLE IN THE COMMUNITY TO PARTICIPATE?
Yes! While this is primarily organized by local churches, our hope is that ten years from now we will see Serve Bellevue providing our city with the most volunteer hours it’s ever seen! So yes, the more the merrier to continue making this community shine!
CAN I BRING MY KIDS?
Yep! Please register them as just like you register yourself. Make a special note about them being your child on their registration. While the majority of our projects this year are adult centered – we encourage the participation of families in serving together!
WHAT SHOULD I BRING WITH ME?
Plan on bringing any personal items you may need, like sunscreen, drinking water, tennis shoes, a hat, etc., along with any items that may be helpful for service projects, such as rakes, work gloves, tarps, work tools, etc. If you have a truck, they usually come in handy. We recommend not wearing jewelry. If we have special projects requiring certain tools, we will work hard to make sure we have everything lined up for our teams.
DO I HAVE TO BE THERE ALL MORNING?
We’d love for you to both be at the opening gathering for prayer, and of course, to complete your project with your team. But, if you need to duck out early – you don’t have to come back for lunch.
WHAT ABOUT SERVE BELLEVUE TEE SHIRTS?
Tee shirts will be distributed at the morning gathering of Serve Bellevue. Everyone will be provided a tee shirt to wear that day. If you have a tee shirt from volunteering in previous years, please let us know in your sign-up form.
CAN I STILL PARTICIPATE IF I HAVE PHYSICAL LIMITATIONS?
Yes. We will need help preparing lunch, administrating projects, and other items. If you’re interested in serving, we have tasks and projects for you to participate in. Please note on your registration your physical limitations.
WHAT IF IT RAINS?
Prepare to get wet if your project is outside and is still able to be completed. Dress appropriately if raining the morning of Serve Bellevue. If your project is unable to be completed in wet conditions, communication and direction will be provided at the morning gathering of Serve Bellevue.
FOR THE WHOLE LAW CAN BE
Love your neighbor
SUMMED UP IN ONE COMMAND
LET'S TALK ABOUT PROJECTS
Imagine if every elderly neighbor had their landscaping trimmed or every single parent had their small home repairs completed. What if volunteer organizations in our city had the manpower to complete those tasks more fit for an army? How would this uplift our community and make it a better place to live? Let’s unite and find out together!
As we show the love of Jesus by serving our neighbors with practical acts of service and kindness, we hope that people’s hearts will be opened to the love of Jesus.
Projects are opportunities to serve one another and our community. You can get involved by identifying & organizing or leading projects that a team of 3-7 volunteers can complete in under 3 hours.
Once you’ve identified an opportunity, submit the project suggestion. We will communicate with you promptly to assess its scope and to gauge our ability to commit to the project based on the number of project suggestions and volunteers. As a project leader, we do expect you to be around for the entire morning. Examples of projects are:
Clean up a widow, elderly, or single parent’s yard
Help with home cleanup or minor repairs for those who are physically or financially unable to do it themselves
Help with minor car repairs for the elderly, widows, or single parents
Build a wheelchair ramp for a family
Wash windows of locally owned businesses or help a local community service provider
