Mission Week is a foundation of Marvin’s outreach and service. Every year, Marvin members and friends roll up their sleeves and volunteer for Mission Week. People of all ages and all skill levels, from professional carpenters and electricians to those who have never hammered a nail, work together to work miracles in a one-week time frame. Over the years it has grown to include four churches: Marvin, Pollard, St. Paul’s and Whitehouse UMCs.
Participants of all ages experience a wide-variety of hands-on missions during the week, from construction projects to a neighborhood festival! Mission Week provides fun and meaningful opportunities for service. There's a place for everyone, whether it's doing yard work, carpentry, taking pictures or cooking and serving meals.
