NASHUVA SOCIAL ACTION 2014-2015


 
At Nashuva we believe that prayer leads us to action. It reminds us that we are here to heal this broken world.  Nashuva is a service that leads to service.  Join our Social Action team as we serve together to bring light to some dark corner of our city.
 
Nashuva Social Action has been running monthly events all around the city for ten years. Our events have ranged from feeding the hungry, the environment, working with homelessness, addiction, the elderly and more.
 
Join us this year! We need volunteers to help at our events.  We need volunteers to lead an event.  We need volunteers to create connections and help us identify events.
 
Stand up and be counted!  Let us know we can count on you.
 
Contact Carol and/or Julie and let us know how you can help.
