We work with the VFW on cleanup, beautification, and serving the post. This is a great chance to get involved with the For the One Outreach initiative as we serve a post in our city.  We organize frequent serve days to be involved in the life of our city and care for those who have served our country.

The post is right off South Congress, and the address is:

VFW Post 856

We are committed to serving locally and are always looking for practical, hands-on ways that we can make a difference in our city. There are lots of outreaches that One Chapel has been a part of in the past from working with the hungry to helping our local schools. For us it's simple, we want to show the love of Jesus by rolling-up our sleeves and caring for our community.
