It’s here! Each year since 2010 our church has set aside a weekend to serve our community together. This emphasis grew to include several churches banding together for a citywide faith based day of service. As I have participated in and led the event over the years, I saw the need to broaden the scope to help more of you participate, as well as demonstrate that service to others is not just an annual event. It is how we show the love of Christ to those we meet each day.
