Serve Day Recap!

Overflow’s first ever Serve Day was this past Saturday and it was a huge success!

From the Overflow Staff, we want to say THANK YOU for helping to make it all happen! In the end we had around 170 students serving our city with 9 different organizations at 11 different locations. Your commitment to serve really did make an impact on this city!

The goal of Serve Day wasn’t to just get you to serve one day, but to encourage, educate, and inspire you to serve every day! You can serve others right around you, and those just down the road. The organizations we served with on Saturday have plenty of opportunities for you to serve and would LOVE to have you back. Just check out their websites to find out more information.

We think Serve Day was awesome, but we’d really love to hear from you!

Overflow Serve Day March 28!

Hey Overflow! We are so excited about our first EVER Serve Day coming up on Saturday, March 28th and we want you to come serve with us!

On that Saturday we will send you out to around a dozen different service projects scattered all around Wilmington. We are partnering with organizations like Good Shepherd, Habitat for Humanity, and Meals on Wheels (just to name a few) to serve our city  in a way that we hope will demonstrate God’s love in a very tangible way!

This will be a chance for you to put into practice what you learn from our current series “GO”. Serving isn’t just a one day event, but we hope this day will inspire and motivate you to serve others every day.

“God is ready to do an incredible work in and through us, we just have to be willing to take that first step to GO and serve.” – Zack Hamby
