Serve Day 2021


July 10, 2021

Helping others is something we all wish we could do more. But with SO many problems, how can we make a real difference in our communities with so little time and resources?

What if it’s actually easier than we anticipate it will be?

Jesus said it best, “Those who want to be great, serve. That’s why I came here. To serve, not be served.” – Matthew 20 (paraphrase)

We can do something GREAT with our little bit, because we all can serve. So, go ALL IN with us and commit to serve this July – by yourself, as a family, or as a group!

If you need help figuring out how best to serve, check the list below for ideas, or email And don't forget to send in your stories of friends and family doing great things to!
