Great day of Service 2020

Great Day of Service is SUMC's opportunity to reach out into the community to help agencies that serve people in need.  This year our focus is to Love God, Love People,and Impact the World.


SUMC will send teams out to over 15 projects in our community and on our own campus working on different projects for each ministry.


To volunteer for Great Day of Service, you must register.  This can be done online or on a paper copy passed out at church.  Click Here to register or also you can register on our Happening Now page.


This year we are including a Let's Bag Hunger event which was Trick or Treat for Hunger in the old days.  We realized that the co-ops need food all year round but especially in the earlier part of the year, so we decided to come up with a new name that would allow us to use it all year long!


The projects are listed on the registration form along with a brief description of the project.  You will be contacted prior to Great Day of Service by your team captain or a team lead confirming your project and team assignment.
