Men's NetWork WORK DAY 2013
On April 27, 2013, the Men's NetWork hosted its first-ever MNW WORK DAY. This nationwide, one-day event was a great chance to get out and help your community, neighborhood or church, by paying it forward.

Men's NetWork WORK DAY Gets the Job Done
In places far and wide across the United States, April 27, 2013, will be remembered as a day of doing. With 50-plus groups signed up and more than 900 individuals applying themselves to their tasks, plenty of work got accomplished on the first-ever Men's NetWork WORK DAY. Everything from spring cleaning at community homes to moving furniture, doing yard work, sorting food, and handling interior projects on churches and parsonages were part of this year's collective efforts. Our hats are off to all who took time from their Saturdays to lend a hand to those in need.
With this year's April 27 Men's NetWork WORK DAY now on the books, it's time to start thinking about next year. We're looking for more groups to get on board and more projects to be undertaken. So be thinking about what the future might hold. Does your local college campus Christian student center need some study carrels built? Would seven guys, a small load of lumber, and a plan be all that's required to put together some cool playground features behind your church? What about adopting a stretch of roadside in the name of your church or men's group and keeping it tidy by periodically picking up trash? Of course, the possibilities are endless-as is the need. We look forward to seeing what you come up with next year!
And last but not least, for those who worked this year but haven't given us your details, please do. Just go to the Men's NetWork Facebook page at www.facebook.com/lhmmen and send us a picture or two with a brief description. No pictures? Then just e-mail us at email@example.com, and tell us about it. The bottom line: this is about more than just one day. It's about inspiring others, so they can see how easy-and fun-it is to make a difference in their own neighborhoods, churches and communities.
