What are Second Saturdays?

Second Saturdays is our community outreach program. Our 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 four organizations: Flagstaff Shelter Services, Flagstaff Foster and Adoption Services, The Peaks School, and Summit High School. The projects include anything and everything that the organizations need. Most service days are two hour projects, but there are also bi-annual Parent’s Afternoon Out’s with Flagstaff Foster and Adopt where we provide 4 hours of childcare to families for a day of respite and recovery for the incredible parents and guardians of some incredible kiddos. We organize and sort through backpacks at the homeless shelter, paint rooms at the schools, do yard-work, make art projects or activity centers for kids at the schools, and the list goes on and on for the projects that we have done and plan on continuing to do.
