You may ask, “What is a Workenanny?”
Each fall and spring we schedule a workenanny at MVUC. Families or individuals come to church in work-in-the-garden clothes and spend a few hours helping to maintain the grounds and property. Tasks include weeding, pruning, cleaning, and brush removal.
Our fall and spring Workenanny Days are an opportunity for MVUC members and friends to get together to put a little sweat equity into our beautiful Holy Hill.
Most of our volunteers spend their time pruning and weeding especially in the more visible gardens around the buildings. In addition, pulling vines off of anything — bushes, fences, trees, buildings — is a must. We have 7 beautiful acres that need to be maintained.
Please help us keep them looking their best. We look forward to seeing you both before and after the worship service. Please wear work clothes and bring gardening gloves & hand tools if you have them. Everyone will understand why you haven’t dressed up for church!
If any of our school-age children need community service hours, please bring the paperwork with you and our Property Manager or a member of our Property Committee will sign it.
No experience necessary! We will train you! There are tasks available for those who cannot get down on their knees. We hope to have a pizza lunch available for workers at 1:15 pm pandemic guidelines permitting.
Any time you can share to help is a plus for MVUC! Watch the newsletters for announcement of the next MVUC Workenanny!
