[June 26, 2010]  Volunteers from churches across the Lincoln community will join forces again this year for the Together for Lincoln Service Project Day: Round 3 on Sept. 26. In addition to the project date, there will be a follow-up date of Oct. 2 for projects that were not completed on the previous Sunday. Volunteers are welcome to sign up for either or both days.

HardwareLast year, over 1,100 volunteers representing 16 local churches served at approximately 120 different project sites. The projects were conducted at people's homes, community organizations and in public spaces. The projects included painting, roadside cleanup, wheelchair ramp construction, visiting nursing home residents, yardwork and much more.

This year's event will once again conclude with an interdenominational worship service that evening. Last year's worship service welcomed over 1,000 people to wrap up the day of service and camaraderie. The service will be at 7 p.m. Sept. 26 at the Lincoln Christian University Chapel. This year's speaker will be Dr. Robert Lowery, presenting "A Dying Man's View of the Book of Revelation."

Volunteers can serve in many capacities, from carpentry work to visiting nursing home residents. Project leaders will be assigned to each project and will be responsible for overseeing the work of each project and contacting the volunteers on their team.

Any Lincoln resident or organization is welcome to apply for assistance.
