Service Hours

As you all know, the Confirmation program requires a total of 20 service hours by the end of Year 2. However, in our current situation, it is difficult to complete service hours the way we usually would. To complete the service hour requirement while following social distancing protocols, we have put together a list of service projects that can be completed virtually, at home, or in social distanced small groups.

You may choose from any of the projects below to fulfill your service hours requirement. If you, a family member, or a friend comes up with another service project idea, let Melissa know! Get creative and have fun with it!

For service hours credit, text a photo to Melissa at (909) 333-6523. Make sure to include your name!

For service hours credit, have the listed person sign the service hours form, found below!

For service hours credit, tag @sj23youthministry on Instagram!
