Faith In Action

The Church has Left The Building

Each September Friedens joins with seven other area UCC churches for a weekend of service projects. These projects make an impact on our local community and around the world. Not only are the recipients of our service impacted, but those serving receive as well.

For one weekend in September emphasis is on leaving the building behind and touching lives throughout our community and around the world. Volunteers don bright orange shirts and hit the streets to complete a variety of projects. Past projects have included:

Join us for Faith in Action 2018 - Dates TBD

At the end of the weekend volunteers from all eight churches share a meal and stories about their experiences. Reaching out to help others brings joy to all who participate. Putting feet to our faith is a great way to spend a fall weekend.
