SEASONALLY

Seasonal serving opportunities take place periodically during the ministry year and are a great way to be involved without an ongoing time commitment.

This is our yearly Summer Camp during the first week of July for all Southview and community children in grades 1 to 6. This is our biggest event of the year and we require several adults and senior high students to lead small groups, crafts, snacks, games and activities as well as junior high students to help.
