Churches of the Clifton Ministerial Alliance will join together Sunday, April 25, to take the loving actions of Jesus Christ into the community beyond places of worship. Groups will meet for a bring-your-own-picnic lunch at the Gazebo in the City Park at 12:30 p.m. Tea and water will be provided.
After a devotional and prayer time, teams will be sent into the community to serve others. There will be ways everyone from 5 to 105 can serve. Organizers encourage the public to “circle that day on your calendar and plan to wear your work clothes to participate in one of the day’s projects to bring help, lighten the load, and brighten the lives of our neighbors in Clifton in the name of Jesus Christ.”
Each participating local church will follow its own Sunday morning schedule, then gather at City Park for lunch. Workers will then be sent out to work on their requested and assigned projects until 5 p.m. Each church will be responsible for childcare for its own children.
