SERVEFEST Outreach Effort Eyes Volunteers To Help Community

BERLIN — SERVEFEST, a one day, yearly outreach event by The Worship Center designed to serve the Berlin community, is scheduled for next month.

The areas of need identified include widows, orphans/fatherless, poor/needy, oppressed/sick and imprisoned.

Organizers are currently accepting requests from residents within a 10-mile radius of The Worship Center located at 10736 Ocean Gateway, Berlin, Md. 21811. If you have a need or know someone with a need and would like to be considered as a recipient for the SERVEFEST outreach, send your written request to the address herein to the attention of Jennifer Mitchell. Be sure to include which of the five categories you meet, your contact information, and the need. All requests need to be received by May 7.

Whether you’re a person who likes to roll up your sleeves and get your nails dirty or someone who likes to connect to others through friendly conversation and heart to heart exchanges, we need your help.  The aim is to unite more volunteers with those who have needs within the community and surrounding areas, while showing the love of Jesus Christ.

In the first two years of SERVEFEST volunteers visited with those in the Berlin Nursing Home, distributed hot meals to approximately 280 people, and provided home repair and yard clean up to name a few of the jobs completed. Last year 90 volunteers participated in helping the Berlin/ Ocean City community. Let’s join hands in making a lasting impact.

Volunteers should plan on meeting for team assignments on Saturday, May 21 at 8 a.m. (rain date June 18) at The Worship Center located next to Casual Designs Furniture on Route 50. Volunteers will be stationed throughout the community showering others with God’s love in a tangible way. This year hot meals will be distributed from the parking lot adjacent to Seaside Christian Academy in West Ocean City.

It is The Worship Center’s desire to reach out to serve those in need by bringing faith and community together to show living proof of a loving God.
