What is Serve & Learn Week?
Serve and Learn Week is a (FREE) opportunity for people of all ages to engage in our community through education and service. We will approach serving and learning through the lens of poverty, the lens of stewarding the Earth, and our own serving ministry as PoP.
Who is Serve & Learn Week for?
We will need strong backs, problem solvers, curious minds, busy hands, and lots of smiles, so if you can bring any of that, consider joining us!
What will we do during Serve & Learn Week?
Activities will involve serving and learning about those in need through organizations such as Bridging, Simpson House, etc., serving and learning about creation in our parks and gardens, and serving and learning about Prince of Peace ministries.
