Five Key Facts

  1. Your church is a part of setting the date! – Love INC is banding churches together by school district and setting dates.  Each group of participating churches will select a week that best suits to serve their community.    All Compassion Projects will happen during summer months when school is not in session.
  1. Churches serve neighbors in ways that relationships can begin! – A Compassion Project is like a mission trip to your own neighborhood. Each week of service is promoted locally. Neighbors ask for support around the home with simple projects.  Some churches serve all week.  Others serve a couple days or on a weekend.  It’s flexible.
  1. It’s scalable – one church can do it and groups of churches will do it! – Manheim Central, Ephrata Area, Warwick, and Conestoga Valley currently have interested churches.  Individually interested churches can participate alone if no other churches from your school district participate.  Chairperson, Nate Minnich, can guide you.
  1. Compassion Projects can happen during Covid-19! – Manheim Central successfully completed a Compassion Project in 2020 using Covid-19 precautions, hosting minimal gatherings in the outdoors, and completing outdoors-only projects.  Again, in 2021, we can adjust as necessary based on the best practices that are current required during the balance of the pandemic.
