About Compassion Week
No regular worship services will be held on October 9. Instead, the congregation will worship that week (October 3–9) by participating in volunteer service opportunities throughout the Peninsula or on our church campus. Friends and family are always welcome to join us! Our goal is to get more than 2,000 people engaged in acts of service. LAUMC organizes volunteer opportunities that range from sorting food to working on construction projects, preparing and serving meals, repairing bicycles, and more.
Registering for Projects
Online registration for projects is open using the button below, or you can register in person on Sundays, at church between services. Some projects will fill quickly, and we encourage you to sign up for your preferred project as soon as you make a decision.
