Introduction

First Serve is a group of about 30 men in the church who are part of a group that we call First Serve. They are all volunteers who make themselves available to help with projects as fits their schedules directly related to the church or to assist families or individuals in the church with basic house care needs. Specific examples of projects they have done are building a handicap accessible ramp from a garage into the home or to give access to the front door. They also were the group that coordinated the moving and reinstallation of the pews in the Chapel during the re-carpeting
