what's it all about?
We love Lloydminster and we want to show it! Pitch-In Sunday gives us a great opportunity as a church to be a part of our civic community and to serve our neighbors in a tangible way. With that in mind, the City of Lloydminster and Lakeland College have enthusiastically agreed to have us a partner with them to clean up the community.
what's the plan?
On Sunday, May 5th, we will all meet at Bud Miller Park Centre at 10:00 am (Note: There will be no FBC KIDS programs that week). When you arrive, head to the Park Centre and check in at the sign-in table to pick up your garbage bag and map of the area you will be assigned to work in. Zone leaders in each area will be able to provide assistance if you have any questions.
We will take the next hour and a half or so to make Bud Miller and Lakeland College shine. Together we can make a real contribution to our community as we take one of Lloydminster’s prime locations and help it to meet all of its potential.
And after we work… we need to EAT!
Once we are done cleaning, we are going to enjoy a big BBQ lunch together! Back at the Bud Miller Picnic Shelter, the BBQ Team will have the burgers and hotdogs ready to go and we will be able to share some good times and food together. There will also be bouncy houses for the kids to enjoy! We would like to encourage you to invite your friends and neighbors to the park for a burger after the clean up. What a great way to introduce them to FBC!
There will be something to do for the whole family from kids to seniors. Even if you have physical limitations* we can find you a spot to help out, so plan to come out and be a part of our crew. We need you to make this a real success! When we work together, we can accomplish something truly amazing.
Be sure to wear your work clothes and bring your work gloves. If you have rubber boots, this would be a great time to put them to use. If possible, please bring a rake to help clean up the lawns right around the Park Centre. And don't forget to bring your lawn chairs for the BBQ!
