Youth Group Service Projects

Make somebody breakfast and take it to them (good for pastor’s birthday, pastor’s spouse birthday, secretary, etc.)

Operation Christmas Lights
Offer to put up Christmas lights for people who can’t do it themselves, take them down after New Year's.

Operation Rake-Up
Rake leaves for people in your neighborhood.

Operation Snow Shovel
Shovel sidewalks and driveways for people in your neighborhood.

Secret Service
Do service activities secretly. Try not to let people know who is doing it. Tie into Matthew 5. Give students Secret Service I.D.s. Leave a note at that work site, saying “The Secret Service of _  Church Youth Group was here.”

Valentine Cookie-Bake
Students gather to bake cookies and then deliver them to elderly church members or nursing homes.

Park & Ride Pals
With cooler morning temperatures, the wait time at the Park & Ride lot can be pretty miserable. Warm up the day for area commuters by giving away free coffee and donuts at the lot. Add a contact card with information about your church’s worship times and upcoming holiday activities.

Free Yard Sale
Ask church members to donate used clothes and other items, then invite the community to a free yard sale.
