We are really excited about Love Loud, one of our biggest events of the year and an awesome opportunity for the people of Pleasant Valley to serve children in our city from families identified by the local schools as most in need of assistance.

Love Loud is a back-to-school event at the end of July that will provide these kids with such things as haircuts, hygiene education and products, backpacks, clothing, food baskets, and ways to meet other physical and material needs.  Additionally, each child and their family will be matched with a host family who will spend the day getting to know them, supporting them, and building a relationship with them to show them the love of Christ.  There will also be food, games, inflatables, high-energy worship, and a presentation of the Gospel.

The details:

  • July 27, 2013
  • 7:00am-4:00pm
  • Most activities will be at PVCC, but some time will be spent taking the children shopping at Wal-Mart.

We need tons of volunteers to make this a reality, so pray about how you and your family can be a part of this awesome event.
You can sign up at the table in the lobby on Sunday mornings or send us an email.

Volunteers can help out in the following areas:

Registration: 7:00am-9:00am
Registration workers will sign in all volunteers, children, and families at Love Loud.  You will also have the option to serve in other areas after registration is closed if you want.

Host Families: 7:00am-4:00pm
Host Families will spend the entire day with a family who they have been matched with.  You’ll eat lunch with them, help them transition from station to station, and will meet them at Walmart to help them with their back-to-school shopping.  Most importantly, you’ll be getting to know the family, loving on them, and living out the Gospel as you build a relationship with them.

School Escorts: 7:00am-4:00pm
School Escorts will chaperone the school groups that the children will be divided into.  You’ll have the chance to embrace your inner cheerleader and be the 1-person pep team for your school, dressing up in their school colors, acting crazy, and going all out with school spirit.

Lunch Team: 10:00am-1:30pm
The Lunch Team will help out with planning, cooking, and cleaning up after lunch.

Clean-Up Crew: 1:00-3:30pm
The Clean-Up Crew will have the task of getting the building back into order for Sunday morning worship.  It will be a huge task, and everybody available will be needed so that it can go quickly and easily.  Host Families will not be able to participate in this, as they will be at Walmart with their families while this is happening.

Inflatables: 8:15am-12:00pm (2-hour shifts)
Adults are needed to monitor the inflatables and to ensure that the kids are using them properly and safely.
