The ‘Do Something Beautiful’ initiative is an opportunity for our church to serve some amazing ministries and charities here in Ottawa.

Sign up for one of five separate teams to plan something for their designated organization that is creative, personal, and impactful.

 

FAQ’s

Who can sign up?

Anyone! There’s no age limit and you don’t even have to go to Cedarview!

 

What’s the commitment like?

Each team will have one planning meeting over zoom in late November, then it’s up to you! However much time, effort, or resources you’d like to spend on the project.

 

What sorts of things are we looking to do?

Each organization has given us their own ‘wish list’ and from that the team will decide how to help. It could be fundraisers, painting, small renovations, cleaning, moving, volunteering, cooking, you name it!

 

Will I have to be in-person?

No! You can help from afar if you like, by planning, praying, organizing, donating, or any other way you choose.

 

Can I sign up for more than one team?

We’d like people to give their best to one organization, so just one is preferred. However, if you have the time, it’s up to you!

 

Can we sign up as a couple or group?

Absolutely! Choose a group and sign up together!
