FIA at a Glance
Faith is Action is a group of volunteers from Our Savior Lutheran Church who get together once each month to serve the Summit-Waller area. Volunteers typically meet on the 3rd Saturday of the month from 8:00 am to 12:00 pm.
Areas of service include the Car Shop, the Community Action Team, and the Abundance Gardens. Labor is free of charge; donations toward the cost of materials is appreciated.
The day of service begins in West Campus at 8:00 am where we review the projects for the day and form work crews. The day ends in the Fellowship Hall at 12:00 pm with a hosted, community lunch.
How to Use Faith In Action:
Our Community Action teams can tackle almost any job for those who lack the means or the know how. Friends and neighbors recommend projects, and our teams get it done. We have provided safe floors and handrails, walkways for wheelchairs, heavy lifting for single moms, yard work for seniors, painting, roofing, plumbing, and more. Each year during National Volunteer Week, our Community Action Teams partner with Franklin Pierce Schools to bring thousands of dollars of campus improvements to local campuses engaging hundreds of volunteers from the community.
OSLC Car Shop
Transportation is an essential part of economic stability. The OSLC Car Shop seeks to provide dependable transportation to those who can least afford it. Our certified mechanics take on the tough jobs while volunteers help with oil changes and minor repairs.
We have two gardens on our property that produce thousands of pounds of produce every year. These gardens are for everyone to enjoy. Friends and neighbors are welcome to join us to plant, cultivate, and harvest.
