What is Weekend of the Cross?
Weekend of the Cross is an event coordinated through the Shreveport District of the United Methodist Church. About 200 teenagers (accompanied by adults) will be working on houses in Shreveport and Bossier City for two days.
What can Weekend of the Cross do for my house?
Because we will only be working for two days, the project must not be too large. We will ONLY be able to work on the outside of homes – NO interior work. We can paint the exterior, add/repair wheelchair ramps, or replace deteriorating porches. We will supply all materials.
Do I have to be home during those days to be considered for Weekend of the Cross?
YES, it is very important to the volunteers that they are able to spend time with the homeowner and their family. We ask that you be home at least one of these days.
When is Weekend of the Cross?
