*Pre-registration for this project will close on 3/16. Volunteers are welcome to walk up and register at any hub location Friday and Saturday (between 7:30am and 8:30am) for projects with availability until projects reach full capacity*
In partnership with churches, associations, your state convention, and SEND Relief, the Serve Tour seeks to inspire you to engage in compassion ministry through participation in ministry projects in Meridian. Our plan is to find ways to meet needs and bless churches, schools, local governments and compassion ministry non-profits. We want to strategically help local revitalized churches and bless bi-vocational pastors by providing assistance.
We want to make it easy to bring people together in Jesus’ name to make a difference.
Our goal is for the Serve Tour to become a unifying opportunity for Southern Baptists to demonstrate to a watching city who we are and (more importantly) who our Savior is. As believers swarm the city, we will provide pre-trip training guides and a 30-day prayer guide to help you take your next step on mission.
What will you do?
You will begin each day of serve tour at the Faith Baptist Church hub. The address is 5050 Highway 19 North, Meridian, MS 39307. Your project leader will give you instructions each morning of Serve Tour.
Oakland Heights Elementary is located in a diverse neighborhood. There are many homes where no one is attending any church. Volunteers will prayer walk and distribute flyers Friday. As they distribute the flyers volunteers can pray for the neighborhood and any individuals they happen to meet. On Saturday, volunteers will be needed to man the blow ups, prepare some games for the children who will attend, cook and serve the burgers and hot dogs, visit with the residents that are attending, build relationships, show the love of Jesus, verbal witness when God gives the opportunity.
