8:15 am - Early Afternoon
Destination: St. Luke Cabot
A community mission trip will happen in the parking lt of St. Luke Lutheran Church and School and you are invited to participate. On Saturday, September 21st from 8:15 am. to early afternoon, one house and two "tiny" houses will be framed in the school parking lot. This year the walls will be taken down, loaded on a truck, and will stay in the local area. In partnership with Center for Community Resources in Butler, the 1,500 square foot house will be completed in Natrona Heights. One tiny house will be completed and placed in the Cabot area, and the other will be taken to Clarion County for veterans. Sounds like fun, sounds a little crazy, sounds like a day of serving.
St. Luke Lutheran Church, Concordia Community Support Services, and Center for Community Resources is pleased to be working with Crossroads Missions - Help Build Hope based in Louisville, Kentucky on this project. Set aside one day and join us at St. Luke for a day of reaching out and serving others. No experience necessary. Come and work as a family, an individual, or a group of anyone from ages 5 to 95.
