Serve Day Ideas


This is a list of project ideas. These are projects that an individual or small group can do and fund on their own.

Ask yourself the following questions:

Who in your neighborhood has a need?

What business or organization within your sphere of influence could use a blessing?

What project types best suit your group’s ages and abilities? (prayer, worship, teaching, physical labor, etc.)

Hopefully, the answers will help you develop a project that is a perfect fit for yourself or group.
