SCOTCH PLAINS, NJ -- Evangel Church of Scotch Plains will once again spearhead “Service for Service,” a bi-annual community outreach event, on Sunday, October 13. 

Birthed out of community response efforts following Superstorm Sandy, over 1,200 volunteers from Evangel Church, and their partner church Metro Park Church of Iselin, NJ, will give up a Sunday to do community service projects in Fanwood, Scotch Plains, Plainfield, and Metro Park. 

“There is something extraordinarily beautiful in spreading light across the community that shelters you every day,” said Evangel Senior Pastor Chris Morante. “Volunteers are able to show God’s love in action, alongside fellow community members in a variety of projects that benefit us all.”

Volunteer activities will range from building homes with Habitat for Humanity, to having a coffee and a chat with veterans at the Veteran’s Hospital, to packing food boxes for Feed My Starving Children, to doing handiwork for community members in need. Each volunteer will have the opportunity to make a difference in someone’s life, including their own.
