SERVE DAY 2019

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.

SERVE Day 2019 takes place on July 13, 2019 from 9:00a – 12:00 noon.

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

Serving has never been easier, more rewarding and fun. It doesn’t matter how long you have been attending Life Fellowship Church, there’s an opportunity for you to plug in and serve at Feeding Children Everywhere and the Colony Location.

We will be packing healthy meals for hungry children, in a fun environment. The meals packaged by our volunteers are not only transforming bodies but transforming lives. It’s not just about providing a meal, it’s about providing an opportunity and providing hope.


Feeding Children Everywhere

Join us as we work party at the Colony Campus. There, we will be painting, gardening, cleaning, mulching, and other general maintenance projects.

Registration available on Serve Day App
