Sassafras is a newly formed group at CUMC devoted to local missions and outings. Since our first meeting in February 2013, we have helped Project Kindness with their Carnation Project, participated in Homeless Resource Day, conducted a Bake Sale/Fundraiser for a struggling local family and participated in Rebuilding Together with a home repair project.
We meet the third Thursday of the month at various locations.
Rebuilding Together and Sassafras
On Saturday, April 27th 2013, fourteen people from CUMC headed to Deale to work on a house with Rebuilding Together. Our jobs included, painting the outside of the house, replacing 10 windows, demolishing and removing a rotted shed, installing shutters, landscaping, organizing and more. It was a beautiful and productive day. The homeowner, a lovely elderly woman, was so appreciative, but the true blessings were ours as we worked together with our fellow church members and many other volunteers.
