Service Groups
FIRST CREW (Days/times vary)

Men and women of all ages are invited to join this group that periodically roles up its sleeves to tackle building and service projects.  We have worked on building repairs and refurbishments by partnering with Good Works, West Chester, Habitat for Humanity, World Impact in Chester, Fredrick Douglas Christian School, and The Village (formerly Presbyterian Children’s Village).  We also partner with Act in Faith of Greater West Chester. Not every project involves a hammer and nails.  Watch the bulletin for information on upcoming projects!
