Are you looking for a way to serve the ClearView body, but you can’t commit to a schedule?

Do you like to be outdoors? Do you love to see your church looking beautiful? If this sounds like you, there is a place for you! We are looking for a few people to help us keep the weed population under control. We have such beautiful landscaping now, and it is a continual chore to keep up with the fast-growing weeds. You could adopt a section, come with others, come by yourself, come when you can – the church doesn’t even have to be open! If you would like to join in, call Kim Reese. She will get you on the list and tell you a little about what needs pulled and what needs to stay. Call 719-221-3455 and LET’S WEED!!!
