What is Community Serve Day?
Community Serve Day is the Sunday where we worship God by joining with our friends and neighbors to do tasks all over San Diego County that make a difference and shine God’s goodness. Jesus sent his disciples out, asking them to do good works, to care for those they met and to tell them that the kingdom of God has come near to them. Through our acts of service we want to bring God’s love to serve and serve with, sharing the kingdom of God. Imagine yourself, your family, your small group reaching out together.If you have a service organization, or coworkers invite them along. Community Serve Day offers us a perfect way to bring our friends together, meet needs and make a difference.
This Community Serve Day we are so excited to have two local Encinitas churches joining us, Seacoast Community Church and The Mission Church! The vision of this special day has captured the community, just as we had hoped. With more than 90 sites to serve, start planning now for you, your family and friends. Visit 5000 Hands (or) www.serveothers.net for more details! Live Volunteer Registration has begun.
