What are Second Saturdays?

Second Saturdays is one way we engage and strengthen our local Flagstaff community. The vision is to build bridges between and empower the local church and leaders that wrap around the needs of at-risk populations. Second Saturdays does this by coming alongside organizations that already serve these populations full time and we offer them assistance in the areas that these organizations need the most. Providing bodies as well as time for non-profit organizations is a huge need in our community that enables these amazing organizations that are already doing great work to focus on their mission instead of projects and to-do lists. Our hope is to empower organizations by encouraging them in their work and creating space for them to focus on their missions, as well as providing volunteers who believe in their calling to be the hands and feet of Christ.

Who do we partner with? What do we do?

We partner with a few community organizations that serve children and families, neighbors that are experiencing homelessness and are unsheltered, as well as foster, biological, kinship and adoptive families . The projects may include anything and everything that the organizations need. Most service days are 2-3 hour projects, but there is also Parent’s Morning or Afternoon Out with Flagstaff Foster, Kinship & Adopt families where we provide 3 hours of childcare to families for a day of respite and recovery for the incredible parents and guardians of some remarkable kiddos. Some of the tasks we might complete include  sort through donations and backpacks at local shelters, painting projects, complete needed tasks for teachers at the schools, do yard-work, clean and organize spaces and the list goes on and onAll these tangible tasks help organizations continue strengthening our community and creating safe and supportive environments.

Meet The Director Of Second Saturdays : Sheri Williams

I am a Missouri native who has lived in Flagstaff for 12 years with my husband and two adult kids. I was blessed to have been born into a Christian family that was big on serving and caring well for others. All these years later, I still love serving and supporting our community alongside my church family. I really appreciate how Second Saturdays makes caring for others as simple as just signing up and then showing up!
