Dockery Chapel Church, a United Methodist congregation, is putting their faith into action by canceling their regular Sunday service to practice very purposeful acts of kindness throughout their community.

Volunteers from both the church and the community will be joining together to repair several homes and the Women’s Shelter, do yard work at Emergency Services building and Wright Memorial Hospital, clean two area parks, make and deliver baked goods, work at the Green Hills animal shelter and package food for distribution at the community food pantry.

This is just part of the projects planned for the day. A total of 13 work projects, some of them intergenerational, will be held over what is being called Faith in Action – Serve 2013 Weekend, bringing together community members from both within, and outside the church.

“We’re excited about how our congregation has rallied to support this special weekend of service to our community. Many of the people in our work parties are neighbors that don’t even attend our church, but see the value of what we are doing and want to help. We invite everyone to join us,” says Dockery Chapel’s Pastor Doug Franklin.

Service projects will begin around 9:30 on September 8th and lunch will be provided for all volunteers.

If you would like to sign up for a project or For more information about Dockery Chapel and their Faith in Action Weekend contact pastor Doug at 654-3003 or visit the church online.
