Several churches in the St. Joseph area participate in a three-day ministry event known as iServe. iServe is designed specifically for children completing fourth grade through sixth grade. Children participate in various work and ministry projects in and around St. Joseph. In the past, we have provided landscaping for area parks, delivered meals to those in need, visited the elderly in nursing homes, painted street signs, and more. Since its inception in 2009, over one thousand children and volunteers have served our community in a variety of ways.
Lunch and snacks are provided daily. Each participant also receives an event t-shirt. On the final day of iSERVE, all children and volunteers go to Worlds of Fun to celebrate.
The goal of iServe is to open the eyes of our children to the needs in their community, and to give them an opportunity to love and serve their neighbor.
