What kind of service projects does your Battalion get to do in the Fall? Add photos and descriptions!
Columbia Presb. in Maryland, CSB 6831 went to their Camp Hemlock in WV to participate in a monthly volunteers work day. One thing they did as a group was to tear off an old deck on the Director’s summer home. They also hauled logs for new seating at one of the campfire circles.
Units from the Capital Region CSB (Maryland, Virginia) make service projects part of each year’s program. I’ll be sharing some information from their email communications to their members.
CSB 7117 Severna Park EPC, MD Some regular December meetings were cancelled, but they continue service works.
Table Setup Service – normal Battalion meeting is cancelled but if you’re able to help set up tables for the Women’s Brunch, we will start around 7pm.
Indian Landing Service – the camping event has been cancelled but we are still planning a single-day service project building kayak racks starting at 9am.
HoC Service Day – we will meet at the church in the morning (10am), and disperse to rake yards until noon (bring raking tools), grab lunch at a fast food place (bring money), and then go to BeMoreCaring at 1pm to disassemble and rebuild pallet shelves (part of Seth Ratajczak’s Herald of Christ service).
All leaders, you are welcome to post your own messages and photos in replies.
CSB Battalion 6468, Chapelgate Church, in Maryland does an annual service weekend with CMTS, Christian Missionary Technical Services in PA. It’s a 3 hour drive to this rural facility that serves in many ways, providing material resources for mission projects and workers in countries like Belize and Nigeria.
The battalion organizes a trip and they can stay in a dormitory and have meals at CMTS, while providing helps in the warehouse and on other parts of the property. Founder and Director of CMTS is a Brigade Alumnus, was discipled as a boy in battalion, and led another battalion as captain in NJ. He has a lot of good things to say about the Christian Service Brigade experience of discipling young men as Christians and as leaders who are able to do the same in discipling others for Christ.
