1937 Project | April 10, 2021

After a tumultuous year, join us as we work to show the love of Christ to our city and serve alongside the Southern Seminary and Boyce College community for our Louisville neighbors.

Projects will conclude between noon and 1 p.m.

COVID-19 Protocol

We want to serve our community, but we want to do so safely. Here are the ways we are working to help mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 virus during our event this year.

  • Register and work projects with “Halls and Households,” friends, family, or those you spend close contact with on a daily basis.

  • You must provide your own transportation to your project sites. Carpool with those you spend close contact with on a daily basis.

  • Temperature checks will be taken at time of check-in.

  • Participants must provide their own masks and work gloves.

The Story of the 1937 Project

In 1937, the Ohio River flooded the city of Louisville and caused massive devastation. Southern Seminary was on high ground, and thus had a unique position to help, rowing out in boats to help stranded people, housing individuals on campus, and even providing temporary office space for the mayor. In honor of that historic event, every year Southern Seminary serves the city of Louisville by partnering with the mayor’s office in an event called the 1937 Project.

Partnership with the Mayor

Partnership with the Mayor

“[Give A Day Week] is not just a civic program, but also a spiritual program for our city and that is why it is so, so appropriate that Southern Seminary is right at the center of it.”

“This has been a beautiful partnership between the seminary and the city. The city’s history will be forever wedded to this seminary.”

– Mayor Greg Fischer –

Registration will look a little different this year. In order to limit the risk of COVID-19 spreading, we are asking that you register with "Halls and Households." These are friends, family, or those you spend close contact with on a daily basis. If you do not have a group, please contact The Bevin Center at missions@sbts.edu.
