SERVE teens to help with community work in Nelson

The teens are available for things like manual labour, painting, gardening and visiting seniors

Submitted by First Baptist Nelson

Every year 250-plus teens from across Western Canada gather for an event called SERVE. For one week these teens dedicate their time and energy to volunteering and working in a variety of community service projects (such as manual labour, painting, gardening, visiting seniors, day camps, clean up and basic landscaping) for both the community and for individuals.

This year SERVE will be hosted in Nelson by First Baptist Church in partnership with The Canadian Baptists of Western Canada and will take place July 3 to 9.

We would like to know if there is a way that we could SERVE you during this event or maybe you know of someone who would benefit from having work done.

If you do, please go to www.fbcnelson.ca and click on the SERVE button. You’ll find the application and any other details that you need there. You’re also welcome to contact Pastor Sara at 250-300-0481. We look forward to serving you!
