Other Super Important Notes: 

  •  All minors require chaperones with at least a 1:5 ratio of adult:youth; we do not allow for youth to be dropped off.

  •  If you'd like to stay Sunday night you're welcome to. However, you must let us know in advance. Please note that we are not serving dinner on Sunday evening.

  • All regular projects are intended for ages 11+ If you believe your younger child can work with you, that's great. Regardless of age, we expect children to either join us for childcare (ages 0-10) or to be actively serving. Thanks for your cooperation!

  • We often have families come to this, which we love! If you're interested in doing childcare as your service project, we can provide you with craft and sport supplies, board games, and a child-friendly service project. This would be a HUGE help to us so that children are well-cared-for and the adults can focus on serving in their areas. Please note your interest in this on the registration form.

  • If you have specific skills (e.g., electrical, construction, plumbing, using a specific tool, etc.) please contact us in advance so we can work with you to set up a specific project.

  • If you are a Thrivent Member, you can help us fund this work! Please let us know and we'll help you fill out the form (and then you're done! It's that easy and doesn't require your own, personal money.)

We're working to find another date for this! 

We were bummed we had to postpone due to COVID-19, but we'll let you know when we reschedule!
