SERVE DAY 2020
Life Fellowship’s annual summer Outreach event “Serve Day”, is happening on Saturday July 13th. We have several opportunities for you to bless and be blessed. Hundreds from Life Fellowship spread out into our communities and show the love of Christ in real and tangible ways. .
Our hope is that serving others becomes our focus throughout the year. Simple acts of selfless love can open hearts to Jesus, and together we can make a difference.
As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God’s varied grace: whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies—in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. 1 Peter 4:10-11
