Together for Lincoln continues to grow

Send a link to a friend

[September 23, 2008]  For the past six months, leaders from nearly a dozen Lincoln churches have been working together to organize a massive community service project day that is now simply known as Together for Lincoln. As of a month ago, the projects committee was preparing to meet the needs of just under 40 projects in the community, which by all standards was a very respectable figure. However, in the past month the number of project applications for the Sept. 28 service day has more than doubled to nearly 100 projects.

InsuranceFortunately for the Together for Lincoln leadership team, local church members have also responded with a desire to serve. According to representatives of the project coordination team, the numbers of volunteers have also swelled from around 250 a few months ago to over 750 current volunteers, who come from the following Lincoln churches: Holy Family Catholic Church, Jefferson Street Christian Church, Lincoln Bible Church, Lincoln Christian Church, Lincoln Church of the Nazarene, Lincoln First Presbyterian Church, Lincoln Southern Baptist Church, Neighbors to Nations Community Church, St. John United Church of Christ, Trinity Episcopal Church and the United Methodist Church.

People from the community who wish to volunteer for Together for Lincoln are encouraged to come to Latham Park between 10 a.m. and noon on Sept. 28, and a project coordinator will assign a project for them to complete.

The Together for Lincoln projects team is also encouraging individuals and families in the community who are not signed up for projects to simply find a neighbor who may need help or visit an elderly person who is homebound or in a local nursing home.

The entire community is also invited to come to the Together for Lincoln community worship service, which will be at 6:30 p.m. Sunday at the Lincoln Christian College and Seminary Chapel, 100 Campus View Drive.

Individuals desiring to make donations to Together for Lincoln may also do so at any State Bank of Lincoln location.
