WHAT IS SUMMER OF SERVICE?
Summer of Service is a strategic initiative for the LBC family to display the loving-kindness of Jesus by intentionally serving our neighborhoods and communities in very practical ways. A variety of service projects will take place over select days throughout the summer in place of the regularly scheduled midweek activities. The desire is not to fill our calendars with more things to do, but rather to help us be strategic and intentional with what we do in order to love and serve our community.
Since serving people is something that Christians should be doing all the time as we are able, we want to encourage each church member to get involved in some way in their neighborhoods and communities this summer.
HOW CAN I BE INVOLVED?
It may be that you already have plans or even want to brainstorm with your family or small group, but if you are looking for ways to get involved here are a few opportunities. Each of these options below is led by someone a church member and is intended to be a means of serving the community and build and strengthen relationships within our congregation.
If any of them look like something you would like to get involved in, please fill out the form and select which project(s) you would like to be involved with. Once you submit the form the leaders of those projects will be able to contact you and let you know the particular details.
The current service opportunities are:
- Senior Elderly Care
- Neighborhood Cleanup
- Community Car Wash
- Women’s Center
- 1st Responder Outreach
- Prayer Project
- One Hope Church Canvassing
While this initiative is called “Summer of Service” we pray that this kind of thinking will continue far beyond the summer. May this just be a starting point for the church family to actively, intentionally, and continually engage in loving our neighbors in real practical ways.
