Maggie's Place Service Project

The Bartlett's 40 Days of CommUNITY small group served at Maggie’s Place, a home in the Parma area for expectant mothers who are homeless or in need of a safe haven to carry their babies to term.  They participated in a monthly work day and did some yard clean up for them.  They also toured the facility, met some of the staff and were blessed to have served them. They are hoping to return again in 2011 to serve.

40 Days Of Community Outreach - Anderson Small Group

What could be a better use and more fun on a Saturday than this:  a small group having a fantastic time doing yard work, some handyman repairs, and talking with an individual who recently had surgery for cancer and just started chemotherapy.  That's what our small group was able to do on a brisk October Saturday.  The woman we helped was a co-worker of one of the people in or small group.  It was one of those days that this is what God got us up to do today!  Thank God for the opportunity to be His hands and feet!

 Jeff at the ladder, Tommy picking up the piles and Harold works the mower.
 Kristin poses with the rake.  Funny thing is she never really used it.  She was serving inside on this mission trip.
 Even Tim and Michael were able to clear the calendar to serve with our small group.
 Some morning fuel to keep us moving!  Yeah for muffins!
Well, can you believe Tommy now has a new nick name - "leaf boy"
