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, along with many other Perimeter families, gather together throughout the morning to help prepare our kids and schools prepare to go back to school.  During this morning of serving, we will be assembling Backpacks, Homework Kits, Meal Kits, and making Cards for Teachers. We are also offering an offsite visit to the Gwinnett JA Discovery Center. We know God is going to do incredible things through our serve day.

We've added two new opportunities to our Summer Serve Day this year!

JA Discover Center Norcross

Saturday, July 21
Offsite Excursion
9:00 AM - 12:00 Noon

65,000 middle school students in Gwinnett County have the opportunity to spend one day a year putting their learning experiences into real life practice. One day of your time can set students up for a lifetime of success.  Join us to inspire and empower the next generation. We will leave from Perimeter Church by bus and return together by 12:00 Noon. Registration required and space is limited and you must be 15 years or older to attend.

Perimeter Church
Scholastic Book Fair

Sunday, July 22
(8:30 - 10:30 AM, 10:30 AM - 12:30 PM)
Community Outreach is hosting a Scholastic Book Fair in the main atrium area. You are invited to stop by and purchase books for your family or to donate to children in our local schools who don’t have access to books in their home. If we can help kids to read, then their opportunities in life will be endless. All proceeds will go to purchase books to go into classrooms of the schools we are investing in throughout the year.
