This year at Mt. Olive, we'll be working on three projects:
- A "mini Beautiful Day." This project will be for all ages, and the goal is to teach the children (& their families) involved in Mt. Olive Ministries the value of serving others. Many times, the children in Mt. Olive Ministries are the recipients of service. However, this year, we will be working alongside children and adults in the community to help beautify properties of elderly people living in the community.
Skill level: All levels! We will be cleaning, landscaping (including the installation of sprinkler systems), and painting. (If you have skill in plumbing, carpentry, or electrical areas, these will also be employed!)
- Rebuilding a carport for Mt. Olive Ministries. Teen & adult volunteers. We’ll need a person with carpentry experience who can direct this effort.
- Workshops for the children to introduce skills. Career workshops (carpentry, gardening, landscaping, graphic design, computer programming, nursing, etc.) as well as creative workshops (sculpting, watercolors, dance, etc.), academic workshops (computer skills, research skills, tutoring, etc.) and homemaking workshops (cooking, baking, ironing, sewing, organizing, money management). The possibilities are limitless! What has God gifted you with that you could teach these children?
