Our goal this summer is to provide our community with 100 hours of community service. 

We love where we live, and we want to make a difference in whatever ways we can, both individually and collectively. To "Love Like Jesus" is the mission statement of The Vineyard - Chester Springs and we hope to demonstrate that to those around us in need by giving our time, knowledge and energy to make a difference. It doesn't matter how young or old you are, there is space for you to serve someone!

Here are a few suggestions that we stole from other churches that have done similar things! These are great to do on your own, with the family, your tripod or your life group!

Remember! Let's be attentive to those around us in need and think creatively on how we can help.

  • Pick up litter or gather a litter picking team to tidy up an area near where you live.

  • Bake a cake for your neighbor.

  • Cook a meal for someone who might need some support.

  • Think about someone or a group of people in your circles who might be in need. Know any brand-new parents? Make them a meal or a care package today. Has someone new just joined your workplace or group? Create a welcome box for them, with tips for settling in and invitations to social events.

  • Run a free car wash.

  • Bottled Water Giveaway.

  • Lawn Mowing – Look for long grass, knock on the door, and go for it. Several mowers make this short work.

  • Rain Gutter Cleaning – This is messy work but very appreciated by homeowners. You will need some ladders, trash bags, and gloves.

  • School Supplies – Distribute school supplies house-to-house, especially in needy neighborhoods whose residents include many children.

  • Fruit Giveaway – I was surprised at the popularity of this one. People really like fresh fruit, and they will readily take it. This one goes over great guns across the U.S. An orange, an apple, and a banana along with a connection card in a clear plastic bag is enough. This also works well door-to-door.

  • Doggie Treats – People often love their pets like family members. Either make from scratch a great doggie treat, or buy them from a pet shop (many shops now offer high-end treats for pets). Wrap several with a ribbon and a connection card and give them out at parks or dog runs.

  • Say hello to a person who is homeless and buy them a cup of tea/coffee.

  • Make a goody bag for your local police/fire/ambulance station staff to say thanks for helping other people.

  • Sort through your clothes and toys to see if there are some nice things you could give to charity.

If you have any suggestions or know of any projects that need help,
