Ministry Highlights: Service Day 2020 Recap
| Ministry Highlights | Dr. Wayne Splawn
At Mountain Brook Baptist Church we aspire to "Love God. Live with Grace and Generosity." One of our regular expressions of living with grace and generosity is our annual Service Day. On Saturday, October 3 just over 100 people demonstrated the love of Christ through acts of service that will touch lives across the greater Birmingham area and beyond. Volunteers engaged in projects in our church gym, at Restoration Academy, and at Cornerstone Middle School.
Projects in the Gym
Volunteers who participated in the projects in the gym:
- Packed 500 hygiene kits for six Birmingham Metro Baptist churches to distribute along with food to people in need
- Prepared approximately 120 Christmas stockings to be used in the Birmingham Metro Baptist Association's "Season of Our Savior" outreach program
- Decorated Thanksgiving themed bags that will be used to distribute food to people in need in Perry County
- Decorated picture frames that will be distributed in December At Home Visitation Bags
Project at Cornerstone Middle School
At Cornerstone Middle School, a private Christian school located in the Huffman area, volunteers assembled six picnic tables that students will be able to utilize during lunch and other break times.
Projects at Restoration Academy
At Restoration Academy, a private Christian school in Fairfield, Alabama, volunteers worked on projects in a green space area on campus. Our church provided and installed sod in this area last year and we were able to improve the area by:
- Installing a patio area for picnic tables
- Staining picnic tables
- Installing sun shades to provide more usable space for outdoor classrooms
Volunteers also worked on cutting grass, trimming bushes, and various landscaping projects around the Restoration Academy campus.
Thank you Mountain Brook Baptist Church family for making Service Day 2020 such a beautiful expression of our living with grace and generosity!
