Acts of Kindness

October 16 - November 14, 2021

NEW FORMAT THIS YEAR!

“…they shared with those in need…with joy and generosity.”
Acts 2:45,46

October and November are our Acts of Kindness Months!!  Our desire is that many people within the congregation will participate in some project to show kindness to our community.

NEW FORMAT:  We are challenging all small groups, families or friend groups this Fall to come up with a service project and to complete it before November 14th. Ideally and what has more lasting effects, is when an individual, family or small group reaches out to someone they know personally – maybe a neighbor or co-worker of someone in your group who is in need or a school that your kids attend that has a need or…. the possibilities are limitless.

If you are short on ideas, Paul and Robin have some projects at homes of elderly folks or the like that could be adopted by a group.  Your small group leader would have a list of these as well.  Contact us at  or  to get more information. 

Here is the list in an abbreviated form:

SANTA CRUZ AREA:   

-Level backyard area, fill in holes and put down bark.      

- Weeding and cleaning up a yard

- Weed whacking backyard and maybe some pruning

-Drywall work and painting

-Painting floor or installing new flooring

-Cleaning gutters out

SOQUEL AREA:

-Weeding, maybe some bark, rack leaves, clean up yard

-Nail down deck boards that are loose

FREEDOM AREA:

-Put up new sheet rock in one room and paint new wall

-Clean mold off bathroom ceiling and paint with mold-resistant paint

-Deck needs major repair or replacing

-Weeding of yard

WATSONVILLE AREA:

-Exterior of house need painting

-Weed cloth put down in yard and staked

BONNY DOON AREA:

-Help frame a small enclosure

 

Another possible project is a group or individuals is on Friday night at Martha's Kitchen's Food Distribution.  A new food pantry in Watsonville is in need of volunteers on Friday afternoons from 4:30 pm to 6:10 PM at Martha's Kitchen - Watsonville (112 E. Beach St, Watsonville, CA, 95076).  If you are interested in volunteering, please sign up online by going to https://marthaskitchen.galaxydigital.com/need/detail/?need_id=563040.  

FUNDS:  If you are lacking funds for your project, we do have a limited amount funds to award to groups.  Email  to submit a request for funding.

NOT IN A GROUP:  For those of you who do not have a group to work with, you can sign up for one of the two service projects listed below that will be completed on Saturday, October 16th at Twin Lakes Church.  See details below!
