Serve Our City

SOC: DECEMBER’S SEASON OF SERVING

Each fifth Sunday, we cancel our church services to serve together. This December, join us for a Season of Serving.

We are focusing our efforts beyond one weekend…to the whole season!  We invite you to gather your family, your co-workers, or your small group to serve this season. You may want to serve with a ministry partner, or you may notice others who need an extra dose of love and kindness this Christmas. We encourage you to step in and take those opportunities to serve right where God is calling you.

Let us know how we can help you! We have Small Group IMPACT funds to assist with financial needs for serving opportunities that you may identify independently of the ministry opportunities below. 

As for our regularly scheduled Serve Our City weekend, December 29-30, we will not hold church services. Instead, we encourage you to serve, if you haven’t had the opportunity yet, or to gather with your family and friends to celebrate how you saw God move while you served, or visit and encourage another church in your community.

We love Jesus and we love our city! What better way to encourage our friends than by serving them in His name?
