Helping Hands Ministry
And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works. (Hebrews 10:24)
Tallowood Helping Hands Ministry was created to assist senior adults, widows, and single women in our congregation with repairs or projects in or outside their home. Helping Hands is a volunteer ministry available to men, women, students, groups, and all who have a heart for service. Opportunities include minor painting, light bulb and battery replacement, air filter changes, small plumbing or electrical jobs, yard cleanup, and gutter cleaning. Where there is a need, no job is too small. Helping Hands projects will be completed on the third Saturday of each month, excluding holidays, unless an alternative date is listed.
