What if all of us took one day to show others how much we care?
If every church, every group, every organization in our community pulled together for ONE DAY to show love to our neighbors–what kind of impact would it have?
#SERVECOWETA is about One Community, Serving Together, Making a Difference. Volunteers from all over our county are flooding their community with love shown through service. Whether it's handing out water at the park, serving food to the hungry, or constructing a wheelchair ramp for a veteran, Coweta County citizens are impacting lives through local missions.
Engage Your Group
Engage your church or group and encourage them to get involved! See our promotional information to help spread the word!!
Choose a Project
Get creative! Perhaps there is a widow, single mother, or elderly person that could be assisted by painting their house, cutting grass, or cleaning up the yard. Firefighters, police officers, school resource officers, nursing home residents, assisted living homes, and local business owners are all great people to reach out to and find a way to SERVE! Check out our list of ideas and other options from local service organizations for ways to get involved.

I want to participate in #ServeCoweta but I am not part of a group.
Many groups are open to having individuals join them for their #ServeCoweta project! Contact the #ServeCoweta coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org to find a group or to list your group project as one needing more people to serve.

Hopefully, you have selected something to do together, but if you need an idea, you can check out our list of ideas for ways to get involved. We will also have a list of adoptable projects to serve with some of our Ministry Partners.
How do I plan a #ServeCoweta project?
Get creative! Assess people and their needs in your neighborhood and around your community. Perhaps there is a widow, single mother, or elderly person that could be assisted by painting their house, cutting grass, or cleaning up the yard. Firefighters, police officers, school resource officers, nursing home residents, assisted living homes, and local business owners are all great people to reach out to and find a way to SERVE! Check out our list of ideas and other options from local service organizations for ways to get involved.
To whom should I communicate which #ServeCoweta project our group is planning?
Let YOUR church know you are participating in #ServeCoweta AND register your project at www.servecoweta.com. We definitely want to know about your group and the project you choose. This will allow us to send our team to capture video and testimonies at your site as well as track the number of projects and participants in #ServeCoweta.
Who pays the costs associated with our small group’s #ServeCoweta project (supplies, travel expenses, etc.)?
Each group is responsible for all supplies and costs associated with their #ServeCoweta project. Spend time determining the scope of your project and plan work based on your group size and commitment level. Many projects are free!
What should I bring to #ServeCoweta?
Plan on bringing any personal items you may need, like your #ServeCoweta T-shirt, sunscreen, drinking water, tennis/work shoes, a hat, etc., along with any items pertaining to your service project such as rakes, gloves, lawnmowers, tarps, work tools, etc. For projects requiring physical labor, work clothes are a good idea. We recommend not wearing jewelry.
What if it rains?
If you have an outside project, make plans to have an inclement weather option in mind. Some suggestions are to visit a nursing home, serve at a local service organization, or clean classrooms at a local school.
