Watts Street on Mission!

May 20 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm EDT

On Saturday, May 20, join us for a dynamic, inter-generational, congregation-wide, hands-on day of service working through our ongoing Mission Groups and Mission Partners.  We have 10 different project sites this year and you can sign up beginning April 30 (at the Beach Retreat).   We invite all Watts Streeters to participate as we “use our gifts to serve God and neighbor”!

  • Ellerbe Creek Trail Cleanup – Pick up litter on the trail and in the creek bed
  • Families Moving Forward – Organize the FMF donations “store”
  • Fellowship Hall Projects – Assemble “Blast Off to Kindergarten” kits, make cards for homebound friends, send greetings to our sister church in El Salvador, tie baby blankets, stock “blessing bags” for homeless, etc.
