Meadow Lark Lane and Surrounding Neighborhood

  • Arrival Time: 8:45-9:00 a.m.
  • Lunch: BBQ on-site at nearby Open Door Baptist Church

Why are we serving here?

ForColumbia’s mission — to bring Christians together to love and serve our neighbors — puts us in touch with those in Columbia who may feel more marginalized or unseen.

This year, we are serving in a new neighborhood close to Open Door Church in an attempt to connect with neighbors living on the outskirts of Columbia, many of whom are renting their homes. When we give our time for the benefit of others, we send the message that they are valuable.

What can I expect?

ForColumbia 2024 Volunteer T-ShirtsForColumbia volunteers will be serving outside in this neighborhood:

  • helping residents with yardwork;
  • moving larger trash items to the dumpster that we will provide;
  • hosting a neighborhood BBQ on Open Door’s large parking lot, and;
  • other outside projects as identified.

What should I bring?

  • If you have a leaf blower, a weed eater and/or pruning shears, we’d love for you to bring them.
  • Come prepared to work outside; if sunny, we encourage you to consider bringing sunscreen and/or a hat.
  • We encourage all volunteers to wear close-toed shoes.
  • Be sure to wear your #ForColumbia T-shirt!

Can I serve here with my children?

Yes, this is a family-friendly site!
