Woodlands Moving Ministry

The Moving Ministry assists those in need in our church or community who do not have connections to the resources or people necessary to move from one living situation to another. They are looking for teams of people eager to serve; willing and able to move heavy or light stuff,  willing to hold doors, bring water to team members, and/or interact with the person we are serving. As calls come in on an "as needed" basis we are looking for groups who could be flexible and willing to work when the need arises. Sometimes this is short notice but it is a great opportunity to BLESS someone and have fun while doing it.

Could use your Life Group's help!

Please contact Mike McClellan for more information or to sign up:
