  • During the winter season, walkways and entrances are cleared by snow shoveling volunteers.  A contractor is hired for plowing the parking area and driveway.
  • Spring clean-up.
  • Adopt-a-project is a wish list that volunteers can commit to allowing them to work on special identified needs of the church.
