As Peace was developing ways to implement our Healthy Church Initiative in cooperation with the Minnesota Annual Conference of the United Methodist Church, our Faith and Spirituality Team explored ways to become involved in the local community. The result of that effort is a partnership with Northeast Youth and Family Services.

On Sunday, October 8th from 10 am to noon Peace will be partnering with Northeast Youth and Family Services to rake and bag leaves, pick up debris, sweep sidewalks and put away lawn furniture for area seniors who are no longer able to complete these tasks for themselves. Everyone should bring a favorite rake and work gloves. Make sure to dress appropriately for the weather and to do a service project. At 10 am we will have a short worship time to send us out in service, around 10:15 we will leave to do service projects as families or in groups of 5 or 6 people. Debbi Wells, Senior Chore & Volunteer Coordinator of Northeast Youth and Family Service, will be with us for the morning and have a list of projects for us along with google maps showing us how to get to the homes of people who need our help with fall clean-up. Once you are done with the service project each team will have a brief time to share and provide feedback for possible future Service Sundays. 

Members of the Peace Community of Faith who are unable physically or for some other reason are unable to participate in the service projects will be able to visit with Debbie Wells once the service teams have left and hear about Northeast Youth and Family Service.

Come and enjoy the fun of helping others!
It will be a new and exciting experience for the Peace Community of Faith!
