One very practical way Shoreline serves those in our church and in our community is by providing basic handyman support to the elderly, single moms, and others with physical and/or financial challenges. We work both directly with individuals as well as with organizations. We take requests at our Community booth between Sunday morning services, directly through the church office, or by word of mouth.
Handyman support includes a wide range of repairs or maintenance work in or around the home. These tasks include trade skills, and tasks typically described as “side work”, “odd jobs” or “fix-up tasks”. The need might be for a specific “fix” or might involve a general “home tune-up” involving identifying and fixing a number of different problems. There are also times when this kind of skilled or unskilled labor may be needed at the Shoreline campus.
Do you enjoy serving in this way? Although specific skills such as those involving plumbing, carpentry, electrical work are wonderful, these types of skills are not a requirement. Projects might involve yard work, hauling, painting, cleaning, small landscaping, and carpentry tasks; able bodies and kind hearts are the most important consideration for many of the projects the team undertakes.
The costs of equipment and supplies are covered by the recipients, while the tools and labor are supplied by the Handyman Community.
We have projects available for you to choose from almost every week, often on Saturdays but also sometimes during the week or evenings. Community members receive an email describing upcoming opportunities to serve. In addition to our labor, we have the opportunity to encourage those we serve, praying with them when asked, and loving both those who are served as well as those we are serving alongside.
Men and women…you can use your abilities as well as your spiritual gifts of serving, administration, encouragement, or evangelism to make a real difference in people’s lives.
