LOVE OUR CITY: April 9-16, 2022

When love is on display, people have hope.

When love shines through, we make an impact on the people around us,  in our community, and in the city. Jesus told us to “Love our neighbors as we love ourselves.” LOVE OUR CITY is an opportunity for us to be better neighbors, spread kindness in our community, and be the change we want to see in the world.

LOVE OUR CITY

Love Our City is more than an event. It's a culture of love and serving others. We want to be people who show the love of God in the most tangible ways. Love Our City is where we come together as a church family to serve the needs of our community. Below are listed several kindness projects that you, your small group, or ministry group can register for that we hope will serve as a catalyst that will continue all year long.
