This year's activity by The Presbyterian Cluster included MISSION-oriented service projects lasting for the duration of one week. The purpose of the Week of Service is to:
1. Accomplish concrete work: build a deck, paint the house at Stone School, and build a garden. The Cluster applied for grants to provide the materials and provided people power in the form of volunteers who would work alongside the MISSION community to carry out these projects.
2. Build relationships both among members of the involved Presbyterian churches and also between the churches and the MISSION community.
There between 8 and 20 volunteers from The Presbyterian Cluster on each day of the week and an average of 10 volunteers from MISSION.
