Enriching Our Live Through Service

Service Opportunities


Easter Fruit Baskets- Contact Lori Rich or Becky O’Brian:  We are collecting and assembling Easter Baskets filled with fruit for specific members in our ward.  Please see Donation Sign-up Sheet to see what items are needed.  Baskets will be assembled on Sunday, April 5th, between the sessions of General Conference.  Baskets will be delivered that Evening.  We need at least nine women to help.


St. Joseph’s Orphanage Play Date- Contact Wanda Nunnery: We will be providing an activity (origami) and snack for 9 children living at the Orphanage.  This activity will be on Saturday, April 18th @ 1:30pm.  We need 3 women to participate.  This activity is for individual sisters only.  Please see the Donation sign-up sheet for items needed for the activity.


Hildebrandt Playgroup Visit- Contact Jessica Erskine:  This service will take place over several weeks.  The children will be learning some new songs to sing at the nursing home as well as making a craft to give out to the residents that live there.  Mothers and their children would need to attend Playgroup in the month of April (though not a requirement to go to the Nursing Home).  The nursing home visit will take place on Friday, April 24th.  We will be meeting at the church at 9:30am and then proceed to the nursing home. This activity is for those sisters who have young children at home (though all can participate).


Green Up Day Mt. Airy Forest-  Contact Rebecca Brown:  We will be cleaning up Mt. Airy Forest on Saturday, April 25 @ 9:00am.  Meet at the oval.  There will be trash bags and gloves provided.  Lunch will be served after the clean-up at noon.  We need a minimum of 25 adults to attend.  All members of the family are welcome.


St Agnes Food Bank Collection- Contact Dona Kramer: We will be collecting food as well as personal care items all month. We need at least six sisters to help stock and serve on Friday, April 17th.  Sisters will be lifting and carrying food to the food bank area.

Pay it Forward Casserole- We will be handing out a two Casserole dishes at the beginning of the month with the rules that when you receive this dish you will need to “pay it forward” to someone else in the ward. Be mindful to those you pass it on to.  We would hate to have a sister feel guilty because she couldn’t “pay it forward”.  Please write your name on the bottom of the dish and pass it on within two days.
