BACK TO SCHOOL SUPPLY DRIVE
For Agape Pamoja, Hillcrest & Hope House
With your donation of a backpack filled with new school supplies, you are giving a child the best possible start to a successful school year!
Please stop by the Servolution kiosk in the lobby for a specific supply list.
We ask that all donations be dropped off at the Church by August 1st. Please stop by the Servolution kiosk
The ministry name, Agape Pamoja, combines the Greek word for “love” and the Swahili word for “community” or “doing things together.” Ministry’s partners have joined together to share God’s love in their community and across the globe rehabbing houses in Kansas City for refugees (teens and adults).
We will be cleaning, prepping, painting, cleaning up the neighborhood near the home and doing some basic construction projects in one or more of their homes. Wear clothes that can get dirty! Closed toed shoes only. Age restriction 12 years and up.
LOCATION ON SERVOLUTION DAY: AGAPE PAMOJA HOUSES THROUGHOUT THE KC REGION
Hope House's mission is to break the cycle of domestic violence by providing safe refuge and supportive services (primarily for women and children) that educate and empower those impacted by domestic violence. Hope House will advocate social change that protects and engenders a person's right to live a life free of abuse. (Donated items should be brand new, with tags and/or in the original box. Items should be clearly marked “Hope House” and can be dropped off at the church the week of Servolution.)
Join us at the Independence Hope House location as we clean and do minor projects around the building and prepare each area for residents to move in. Residents have not been able to live in the home for over a year now due to Covid, but are returning in August. Let’s make it a beautiful place to live! Ages 13 and up.
PRO DEO YOUTH CENTER
Pro Deo Youth Center is a relational organization geared toward teenagers in grades 9th-12th. At its core, Pro Deo is a people group, a family, a home away from home, providing after school and Friday night programming to help teens grow into productive adults, all the while, enjoying their teen years in a safe and fun environment.
We will be making the Pro Deo Youth Center ready for the students as they return for the fall. We’ll be decorating a “BACK TO SCHOOL” area in the main room and whatever other projects they are needing help with that day. All ages welcome
LOCATION ON SERVOLUTION DAY:
PRO DEO YOUTH CENTER - LEE’S SUMMIT
We will be helping to re-mulch their playground and fix up a slide as well as play some games with the kids and hand out popsicles.
Please bring garden tools and gloves.
All ages welcome.
Crittenton Children’s Center's intensive residential program helps adolescents (all genders ages 12 to 18) who are exhibiting high-risk, out-of-control behaviors because of complex trauma from abuse, neglect, chaotic living situations, or symptoms of mental illness.
Project: We will be making hand written cards for kids who have just gotten out of the hospital. These are students who are considered to be a potential harm to themselves, and so our hope is that these cards will bring encouragement and strength. All ages are welcome.
TEACHER GOODIE BAGS
Come join us as we appreciate our local elementary school teachers here in Lee’s Summit. We will be creating goodie bags to be handed out to teachers as they return to their classrooms this fall. All ages are welcome. The goodie bags will be prepped here at Eagle Creek Church and delivered the following week.
YARD CLEANUP/ MULCHING AT LOCAL SCHOOL
Join us at a local Elementary School as we work to beautify the flower beds and parking lot areas of the school. All ages are welcome. Please bring your own garden tools and gloves.
