This year you have the opportunity to submit requests to the Service Marketplace. Is there a technical service, home repair, or garden project you’ve been wishing for? Explain your project on the Service Request Form, and list the price you’re willing to pay the church for someone with the time and skill to grant your wish. Here’s how it will work:

  • Have a project, task you need assistance completing?
  • Can it be clearly defined, with a start and finish point?
  • Can a volunteer successfully fulfill your need?
