Therefore, we have declared Sunday, May 15th to be the very first Serve Together Sunday at Arapaho Road. From 9:30 am until 12:00 noon, the Arapaho Road family will gather at the church in the Worship Center for a brief time of worship and instructions before moving to the Family Life Center where we will serve together as families. On that Sunday, our Family Life Center will be turned into a food assembly and packing space. We will be partnering with Children’s Hunger Fund to assemble 1000 boxes of food that will feed 1000 families in need.
Each box, known as a Family Pak, will be stocked with enough food to supplement a family of four with approximately 48 meals. The Family Pak is intended to supplement a family with food needs for an entire week. Each Family Pak costs $10 to assemble and stock with nutritious food.
Although it is not mandatory for Arapaho Road families to donate anything financially to participate in the Serve Together Sunday opportunity, we encourage each family prayerfully to consider donating at least $10 per family member who will be serving together. For example, The Rogers Family has four people who will be serving together (David, Alison, Jack and Lucy) and will plan to give at least $40 that will cover the cost of four Family Pak boxes filled with food. Not only will the Rogers Family help cover the cost of the four Family Paks, but also they will serve together as a family to prepare the contents of the Family Paks along with others their family will put together throughout the morning of service.
One Arapaho Road family was so excited about this serve together opportunity they wrote a check for $1000 to help cover the total cost of this exciting day of service.

This promises to be a day of great fun, lots of great service, and the perfect opportunity to invite your friends and neighbors to join you. Imagine the whole church making a difference in the lives of 1000 families who need some help. What a great opportunity to Follow Jesus, Love Your Neighbors, Bless the City and Make Disciples!
