Serve Days

Serve Days are awesome opportunities to come together with our City Groups to share Christ's love in our neighborhoods through real and tangible ways. 

Who can serve?

We encourage everyone to find opportunities to effectively use their gifts to build up the body of Christ and extend the Kingdom of God. Then share your creative ideas with your City Group Leader to see how it can be implemented as a group.

What is a Serve Day?

Once a year, on the same day, we join with other churches across the world in serving our local communities to share the love of Jesus through practical acts of kindness. Simple acts of selfless love can open hearts to Jesus, and together we can make a difference.

Why serve?

Serving is a fun and rewarding experience that provides the opportunity to:

  • Share Jesus with others.
  • Bring our skills together as a team.
  • Build relationships with people and businesses in our community.
