Collective is looking for a group of handy individuals to help out on regular maintenance and special projects. If you're interested in taking a couple hours out of your time to help us keep things running and move things forward, we'd love to see you! Details to be found on the monthly Facebook event.
This group includes everyone from weekend green-thumbs who help maintain some landscaping and beautify the planters and parking lot, to former contractors who dabble in electrical and engineering. If you have a few hours and a desire to help, we can use you.
In the past we've done basic maintenance like replacing light-bulbs, setting the room and furniture, and regular cleaning. In the future we'll have more labor intensive and specific projects that include painting projects, rennovation work and some light demolition.
We have a great custodian named Rob who cleans twice a week. But the less we have to pay Rob to do, the more we can invest in the kinds of distinctives that set Collective apart as a congregation. The floors don't clean themselves and the lights don't change themselves, but the community can (for the most part) maintian itself.
We are a misfit faith community that gathers in DeLand on Sundays at 5pm. Come as you are.
We value highly the metaphor of journey. We’re different people from different places and backgrounds, representing an intergenerational community, and we’ve traveled different paths. So, we agree not to make assumptions about the person across from us, next to us, or in conversation with us. We challenge ourselves to be sensitive, knowing this community includes a diverse group of people from life-long followers of Jesus, to people who are just now open to the idea that God might exist. We strive to avoid offense, ask good questions, articulate and explain our responses. We don’t assume fluency in bible, spirituality, or Church language, because we believe the message of Jesus is not for Christianity, but for humanity. So, we do everything in the spirit of love and grace.
