Frequently Asked Questions

Why do I need to sign-up?
We are asking everyone to sign up so that we have a good distribution of team members to projects. We want to make sure that we have enough team members for each so, signing up will help us plan better the allocation of supplies, resources, tools, etc. Besides, if you register, you get a cool t-shirt when you check in at the lobby on Sunday, Nov 5th.

What do I do on Sunday?
Everyone is asked to come to Point Harbor on Sunday and check in. There will be tables in the lobby with team members with lists organized by last name. Check in with one of them and receive a t-shirt. After checking in please move inside to the auditorium for a brief devotional by Pastor John, before going to do the work.

What happens if I don’t sign up?
You will be fined $1,000 and your car will be confiscated! Naww… if you don’t sign up you will be assigned to one of the nifty projects on campus. But, you wont get a cool t-shirt!

What times can we work? What time does it start and finish?
At each site, we will be start working at 9am. Finish when the work is done or when you are done.

What do I wear?
Work attire is appropriate. Please take into account the weather for the day. You may be inside or out depending on your assignment. Those working outside should bring sunblock. The first 200 to register will receive a free t-shirt.

What types of work might I be doing?
Work may include painting, washing windows, weeding, landscaping, power washing, laying mulch, deck repair, etc.

What do I need to bring?
Water bottles. We are trying to cut down on garbage and request that you bring your own water containers.
Food. We won’t be able to provide snacks. Please bring your own food/lunch.

Do I need to bring tools?
Depending on your assignment, you may need: impact wrench, belt sander, radial arm saw, jointer, wall chaser, impact driver, jigsaw, pneumatic torque wrench, diamond blade, biscuit joiner, etc. But, don’t worry, your Project Coordinator will let you know of specific tools that will be needed. Gardening and weeding tools are the most needed tools at most sites. If you bring any tool, please be sure it is labeled with your name and contact information, otherwise we will consider them a donation!

Will I be working alone?
It will depend on the nature of your assignment. In most cases, you will be working in small teams, led by a team leader.

Can my kids participate in Good Work Sunday?
Absolutely! They are welcome to work alongside of you at any of the sites. We will have our normal Sunday Children’s Ministry and nursery for infants through Preschool if you would like for your children to stay at church. Children will need to be picked up by noon.
