About Gathering for Service


Starting in 2018, The Oviedo Gathering will have two components for an all-day event.  One component is called Gathering for Service that will start early in the morning.  It is the desire of many of the area churches to blanket the city and help those who may need assistance in a variety of ways.  Details for the service projects will be forthcoming as we get closer to the event date.  There will be opportunity to submit projects via the website, but it is important to note that the projects cannot be overly costly and will be of the type that can be completed in approximately 6 hours.  In addition, they are not intended to be long term or ongoing projects.  


Although this is not an all-inclusive list, Examples of appropriate projects would be as follows:


  1. Help with minor home repair projects that don’t require a permit.
  2. One time yard maintenance projects.
  3. Providing assistance to organizations that help those needing assistance.
  4. Doing chores for shut-ins.
  5. Visiting people who are in nursing homes.


The projects are meant to meet the needs of those who simply need help.  It would be appropriate, but not an absolute necessity that the projects be coordinated with a church body.  Projects can be submitted online at Oviedogathering.com.

Project Criteria

  1. The project must be for those who really need help.
  2. Projects cannot be overly expensive.
  3. Labor and limited material expenses are provided.
  4. Cash gifts are not considered projects.
  5. Projects cannot require a permit.
  6. A “Right of Entry” form may be required for projects on private property.

Process for Submitting a Project

Anyone can submit a project from the OviedoGathering.com website and interactively complete the “Project Submittal Form” and click on submit.  Once the form is submitted, it will be reviewed and someone will contact the person who submitted the form if there are any questions.  If for any reason the project is beyond the scope of what we can accomplish, the contact person will be notified.  If you have any questions, please submit them via email at “Contact@OviedoGathering.com”.
