Faith in Action-Rake the Town 2021 

Hello Church Leaders and Faithfull,   Fall is just around the corner and we are busy planning for Faith in Action's Annual Rake the Town Event!!  This year we are looking at coordinating volunteers for over 75 yard clean ups in our area!! WOW!  God is Good!!  Would your church body be interested in joining us for this fun event?  Individuals, groups and families are all welcome to join us!!  Some of you have already contacted signed up - thank you!

Rake the Town doesn't have a set day or time, so your group can plan for a day and timeframe that works best for you!  Usually the end of October/beginning of November is best. Yet we live in Minnesota, so it could snow too!!  We have many clients that are elderly or disabled, and this small act of service helps them be able to stay in their own home safely.  It's also an amazing way of sharing Jesus love with them and reminding them that their community cares about them.  

Please let us know if you are interested in joining us for this fun, family event!  Blessings, Maureen Baty
