WEEK OF SERVICE

Week of Service
June 2nd - 8th

“You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.

Matthew 5:14-16 ESV
 

Our Gospel in Life sermon series is wrapping up with a week of service! During the first week of June, we're going out into our communities to serve out neighbors. In each of these volunteer opportunities outlined below, there is an opportunity to show the love of Christ.

We know this list barely scractches the surface of all the opportunities to serve our communities.

If you and your Discipleship Group would like to serve elsewhere, please do so! Get out there and see how you can meet the needs around you. It can be as simple as cleaning up your community – no act of service is too small.


Check out these opportunities, share them with your friends and Discipleship Group members, and sign up to serve your neighbors during our Week of Service.
