FBC’s proximity to the Lake Murray dam affords us a unique opportunity: to serve those who walk and run there by giving out water. Last year we received many positive comments and had some encouraging interactions with folks. It’s a great way to serve our neighbors and increase FBC’s visibility in the community.
We are planning to serve water on the dam for the last four Saturdays in June – June 9th, 16th, 23rd, and 30th. To make it happen we need volunteers to take one-hour shifts between 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. Each shift requires two volunteers.
All that is involved is handing out cups of water to walkers and runners passing by. Some people may ask where the church is, or have some other basic questions about the church, but most are just very appreciative to receive the water. Because we set up at the middle of the dam, you need to be able to walk two miles (one mile from the parking lot to the middle, and then one mile back after your shift). Unless you take an early morning shift, you also need to be able to withstand the higher temperatures this time of year.
