This weekend, Savannah’s faith community will work side-by-side on local service projects as part of “Congregations in Service.” This interfaith group hosts community service weekends twice each year, bringing together members of local synagogues, churches and mosques to put faith into action.
Everyone is invited to participate, and there will be projects suitable for the young and old, singles and families, and those who like to work outdoors and indoors.
Congregations in Service includes people from many faiths – Jewish, Christian, Unitarian-Universalists, Bahá’í, Islamic, and Roman Catholics – and also welcomes those who are not members of a religious institution.
Projects will include everything from cooking food for the Ronald McDonald House, to a beach cleanup on Tybee Island, to gardening and painting at local shelters.
Saturday, participants will meet at First Presbyterian Church at 8:30 for breakfast before beginning the projects. The group will gather again for lunch at 11:30 at First Christian Church.
On Sunday, participants will meet at Congregation Mickve Israel at 12:30 for a pizza lunch before beginning the projects.
