TAYLORVILLE — Missions for Taylorville work date is set for Saturday, June 11, 2022.
Missions For Taylorville was the visionary idea of Chris Wilson, member of Davis Memorial Christian Church. Chris was a teacher and Taylorville resident who shared her dream of beginning a missions project that would allow people to do missions-type work in their own community, instead of traveling to another state or country. A planning committee was formed and the first work day was held in June of 2010.
Wilson passed away in November 2014 following a battle with cancer, but her dream lives on as the organization continues to assist as many people as possible. In its 12th year, Missions for Taylorville has been going strong and has helped out dozens of community members.
Projects for needy homeowners include painting, general carpentry/woodwork, drywall, fence repair, deck work, landscaping, cleaning and other general home projects. A task force will review and evaluate the projects and match them with volunteers.
Work will be performed between 9 a.m. – 4 p.m. on Saturday, June 11. Work performed will depend on the demand and the volunteers available. You may call Davis Memorial Christian Church at 217-824-8181 or email MissionsforTaylorville@ gmail.com for any questions.
If you or a group of family or friends would like to volunteer your time to help, volunteer applications are being accepted up until the 11th of June. People with all skill levels are welcome to help in working together to help fellow members of the community. This would be a great opportunity for church groups, Boy Scouts, sports teams, families and friends to help out. The group will meet Saturday at 8 a.m. at the Calvary Baptist Church to get work assignments.
You may get a volunteer application at Davis Memorial Christian Church, 1500 W. Franklin St., Taylorville, or from their Facebook page at Missions for Taylorville.
