Every day is a Second Saturday. In order to meet our volunteers’ and community’s needs, Second Saturday doesn’t need to occur on a Saturday. Some volunteers need to work from home while still others cannot commit to Saturday. We’ll still meet on the Second Saturday of every month for planning and some projects, but we will also be doing other projects as volunteers are available throughout the month.
Because of COVID-19 concerns and the volunteers who are currently available, Second Saturday will focus on three ministry areas to begin with:
Wood Ministry
Homebound Shut-in Ministry
Extended Care Shut-in Ministry
Once volunteers and projects are available, ministry areas will expand.
If you would like to be a part of the Second Saturday ministry, make plans to join us for our next meeting on Saturday, March 13th at 8:30 AM at Crossroads. No experience is necessary, just a heart to help others in our community. If you are not able to attend our next meeting, contact Dan Kemp at 740-503-5190.

Projects for the March 13th Second Saturday include Wood Ministry projects—cutting, splitting, stacking, and delivering wood. Bring work gloves! We will also be working on cutting out mask and beanie patterns for The Turban Project. The Turban Project provides free headwear for patients who have lost their hair due to medical reasons. The Project also provides reusable face masks for men, women, and children. Each volunteer prays over the masks and headwear as they work so that each item has been covered in prayer and love! Bring fabric scissors if you have them.
