Send a link to a friend

[July 11, 2011]  With a combined history of over 2,500 volunteers serving at more than 300 project sites over the course of the past three years, Together for Lincoln is at it again as it plans for its fourth annual community workday on Sept. 25. In addition to visiting seniors, painting homes and cleaning up yard waste, coordinators anticipate that they will construct their 50th wheelchair ramp in the community.

The partnership of approximately 16 churches "Coming together for the common good" continues this year with an understanding that their efforts are not only blessing people in Lincoln, but that other communities are also modeling this effort. Churches in Rushville have already partnered to model Together for Lincoln with a successful service day in their own community, while churches in places such as Pana and Columbia, Mo., have contacted Together for Lincoln coordinators to see how they might model the service day as well.

It is easier than ever to volunteer this year, as volunteer applications can be completely filled out and submitted online at For those who wish to submit written project or volunteer applications, both applications can be found on TFL's website, at all State Bank of Lincoln locations, Action Rentals and The Oasis senior center. The deadline for all applications is Aug. 15.

The project day will once again conclude with an interdenominational worship service at Lincoln Christian University's Hargrove Chapel. The evening worship service has become a cherished part of the project day, with nearly 1,000 people in attendance each year.
