what to expect

8:45am breakfast + vision
We start each day with some bagels, coffee, and a time of framing our day with Scripture. This is a vital part of our time together.

9:00am project assignments
We assign you or groups to work in one of our different focus areas based on your preferences.

9:10am let’s get to work!

10:00am prayer walk starts
We wait until 10:00am for prayer walks so we don’t disturb those who are sleeping in. Prayer Walkers will assemble neighborhood gifts from 9:15-10:00am.

11:45pm time to clean up
At noon, we start cleaning up from our projects and returning tools and materials to the appropriate locations.
