WHAT IS SUMMER OF SERVICE?
Summer of Service is a strategic initiative for the LBC family to serve our neighborhoods and communities in very practical ways. We hope to mobilize a number of teams to take on a variety of service projects on select days throughout the summer. Since serving people is something that Christians should be doing all the time, we want to encourage each church member to get involved in some way in their neighborhoods and communities this summer. 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.This is not about filling your calendars with more things to do, but rather being strategic and intentional with what you do. #redeemingthetime #summerofservice Click To Tweet
HOW CAN I BE INVOLVED?
It may be that you already have an idea or you would want to brainstorm with your family or small group, but if you are interested in organizing and/or leading a service project, please contact the office and share your idea! In the past, we have had groups do everything from Senior/Elderly care, to neighborhood cleanup, to helping at women’s centers. Within the next few weeks, we hope to have several opportunities available for the church family to participate in. The goal is to simply serve the community and build and strengthen relationships within our congregation.
While this initiative is called “Summer of Service” we pray that this kind of activity would 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.
