WHAT IS LOVE AND LIFE WEEK?
Love and Life Week is our one week event to serve the community around us. It’s an amazing opportunity to bless and be blessed. Hundreds will go out into our community and show the love of Christ in real and tangible ways. We encourage small groups to choose a project and be the hands and feet of Jesus. It takes place Monday, July 24th – Saturday, July 29th.
 
 
HOW DO I PARTICIPATE IN A SERVE PROJECT? 
The easiest way is simply to sign up online. In addition, you will be able to sign up at booths in the lobby at weekend services on either July 16th or 23rd. One you’ve signed up, your project host will contact you and give you the pertinent information.
 
 
WHAT SHOULD I BRING WITH ME TO MY SERVICE PROJECT?
Plan on bringing any personal items you may need. We’ll provide you a Love and Life T-shirt so that you are identified as a team member but in additional, you might need sunscreen, water, tennis shoes, a hat, etc…along with any items pertaining to your serve project such as rakes, gloves, lawnmowers, tarps, work tools, etc. For serve opportunities requiring physical labor, work clothes are a good idea. We recommend not wearing jewelry. Also, check with your leader for what you may need.
 
 
WILL THE CHURCH BE COMMUNICATING ADDITIONAL DETAILS ABOUT SERVE DAY?
Emails will be sent to service project leaders and co-leaders and general information will be communicated here on this site. More info may be presented during Sunday services prior to Love and Life week.
