We exist to serve others by showing God’s love in practical ways through meeting the needs within our communities and spheres of influence. Simple acts of personal kindness can open hearts to the love of Jesus for both those being served and those serving. Come join Community Outreach for this morning filled with both onsite and offsite serving opportunities and a variety of seminars are being offered this year. Gather together with your friends, family or small group. Invite your neighbors and co-workers to join you as we help get our kids and schools ready to go back to school. 

 

During the morning of serving, we will be assembling backpacks, sorting school supplies, assembling basic need bags, and clinic supplies for our local schools. In additional to these onsite projects we will be offering opportunities to serve offsite and opportunities for equipping and training will be offered onsite. All to encourage you to love your neighbor, and to also give to our back to school campaign. 

 

Sign up with your Journey Group, Connect Group or Family and be a part of the incredible things God is going to do in and through this day!
