Seventh Annual iServe Announced...

Seeking Volunteers: On August 27th, 2022, i-Serve volunteers will go out into the community to provide free help with yard work, painting, minor building repair, household cleanup and completion of simple errands. Anyone in the Galva or Bishop Hill area can ask for assistance in completing projects they cannot do on their own by submitting an i-Serve work request by August 8th.

We are asking people who are planning to volunteer to serve neighbors in our community to contact the Neighbors in Christ parish office at (309) 932-2460 or email the parish office at galvafirst@gmail.com to let us know what kinds of projects you would like to do, so that we can match skills with work requests. All are invited to be involved! We look forward to seeing our volunteers gathered on August 27th in Epworth Hall of the Galva First United Methodist Church at 7:30am for fellowship and to form teams, before scattering to serve our communities. All are welcome to be part of this time celebrating God’s love for us and our call to serve another in love.
