Don't Just Go to Church, Be the Church
The Church has left the building. And on Sunday, September 8th, their community was glad they did. Dockery Chapel Church put their faith into action by canceling their regular Sunday service to practice very purposeful acts of kindness throughout their community.
Volunteers from both the church and the community joined together to repair several homes and the Women’s Shelter, do yard work at Emergency Services building, clean three area parks, make and deliver baked goods, work at the Green Hills animal shelter and package food for distribution at the community food pantry. A total of 14 work projects.
We’re excited about how our congregation has rallied to support this special weekend of service to our community. Many of the people in our work parties where neighbors that don’t even attend our church, but saw the value of what we are doing and wanted to help. We invite everyone to join us.
