Starting in the summer of 2009, First Presbyterian and First Christian Reformed Churches have undertaken a joint mission project in the city of Chatham. Over two days a group of volunteers transforms the outside of a house for an individual in need. We have scraped and painted houses, built wheelchair ramps and fences, repaired decks and front porches, replaced eavestroughs, landscaped, and done general cleanup around a house. This is done free of charge as an outreach of love and compassion to the homeowner.
After a three year hiatus, the Backyard Mission is running on Friday and Saturday, August 11-12! The theme is based on Revelation 22:2 which speaks of the tree of life as having leaves “for the healing of the nations” T shirts with this year’s theme will be available at a cost of $15 Let us know your size and how many you need. There is a volunteer list in the sanctuary or you can call the office at 519-352-2313 to let us know you’re interested in helping out this year.
