Super Serve Saturday

Super Serve Saturday

As a way to bring families, multiple generations, and people of all backgrounds together we are offering different opportunities to serve in meaningful ways throughout Cincinnati. There is something for each age and ability – no superpowers necessary – just a willing, humble and flexible spirit and heart for all!

Super Serve Saturday is Temporarily Postponed

3rd Saturdays of the month

Super Serve Saturday is on hiatus until the weather gets warmer in order to serve in outdoor settings and when the spread of COVID lowers. We are hopeful to resume the 3rd week of March or April!

In the meantime – there are still ways to make a difference in Cincinnati!

Donate Wish List Items to The Center for Respite Care

Throughout January we will be collecting items for the Center for Respite Care in the Social Hall at church. You can drop off items anytime from 9:00a – 5:00p each day. Your donations will help those recovering from illness or surgery more comfortable during their stay at The Center.

Weekly Distributing Meals to Children 

John P. Parker Elementary School in Madisonville

Wednesdays from 7:00a – 12:00p

Thank you for willingness to help distribute meals to children while they are learning from home! We are partnering with Cincinnati Public Schools and UMC Food to serve free meals to-go to children (18 and under) at John P. Parker Elementary School in Madisonville (5051 Anderson Place, 45227).

With distribution times being from 7:00a -12:00p there will be two shifts per day. If you would like to serve the whole 5 hours, please sign up for both shifts. Distribution will take place outside (so please dress accordingly). Those serving are able to maintain social distancing while families coming for food will stay in their cars for no contact pick up. Please bring and wear a mask.

Past Super Saturday projects included:

  • A team prepared a taco and salad bar to serve and share with 22 patients and staff at the Center for Respite Care.
  • Our youngest team decorated place mats that will be used by patients.

Another team helped to make new houses homes for 20 families by sorting and packing linens and dishes with New Life Furniture Bank.

A team packed over 200 snacks and shelf stable meals for seniors in Cincinnati for Meals on Wheels of Southwest Ohio and Northern Kentucky.

Over 450 bags were prepared for the Project 5000 food drive during Lent supporting Madisonville Education and Assistance Center’s choice food pantry.

 

Close to 2,000 eggs were assembled, sorted by color, and counted to use at the church’s Community Easter Egg Hunt (will be used for 2021).

A team served at the Habitat for Humanity’s Restore in Bond hill clearing out an area of pallets taking up space in the parking lot. This team organized 30 salvageable pallets and tossed another 30 into the dumpster, nearly filling it.

Another team served at Wesley Chapel Mission Center helping with a mailer to individuals and organizations as well as preparing folders for new volunteers for the summer.
