ABOUT SERVE DAY

What is SERVE DAY?

SERVE Day is a day LF Church is going to show the local community that “we love this place”. It is an amazing opportunity to bless and be blessed. Hundreds will go out into our communities and show the love of Christ in real and tangible ways. We encourage every lifeGROUP, every Team, every Family, and Attender to choose a serve project of their own and be the hands and feet of Jesus on SERVE DAY.

 

Will there be childcare?

We do want to encourage families to serve together on SERVE DAY. There are many projects that are listed for Families or Everyone that are great opportunities to teach kids the importance of putting someone else above ourselves.

 

What if I don't have a SERVE opportunity selected and my lifeGROUP wants to serve?

Hopefully, you have selected something to do together, but if you are in need of an idea, you can check out any of our locations under "Projects" for a list of ideas and ways to get involved. Campus Serve Points can also help you work through details to make your project a reality. Stop by the Connect Center to meet your Campus Serve Points.

 

How do I plan a SERVE project?

Get creative! Assess people and their needs in your neighborhood and around your community. Perhaps there is a widow, single mother, or elderly person that could be assisted by painting their house, cutting grass, or cleaning up the yard. Firefighters, police officers, school resource officers, nursing home residents, assisted living homes, and local business owners are all great people to reach out to and find a way to SERVE! Check out our list of ideas and other options from local service organizations for ways to get involved.

 

Should I communicate to the Church which SERVE DAY Project our group is planning?

Yes, we definitely would like to know about what your group is participating in. Be sure to register your project under one of the locations.

 

Who pays the costs associated with our SERVE Project (supplies, travel expenses, etc.)?

Your SERVE Project Team is responsible for all of the supplies and costs associated with your serve project. Spend time determining the scope, and plan work based on your group size and commitment level.

 

What should I bring on SERVE DAY?

Plan on bringing any personal items you may need, like your SERVE Saturday T-shirt, sunscreen, drinking water, tennis shoes, a hat, etc., along with any items pertaining to your serve project such as rakes, gloves, lawnmowers, tarps, work tools, etc. For serve opportunities requiring physical labor, work clothes are a good idea. We recommend not wearing jewelry. Also, check with your leader for what you may need.

 

Will the church be communicating additional details about SERVE Saturday?

The Church will be emailing project leaders, who will then email project volunteers more specific project instructions a few days before Serve Saturday.

 

What if it rains?

If possible, check to see if the weather will pass in enough time to still accomplish your project. If not, make plans to have an inclement weather option in mind. Some suggestions are to visit a nursing home, serve at a local service organization, or clean classrooms at a local school.

 

Will there be SERVE Projects available for those NOT in a lifeGROUP or on a Life Fellowship Weekend Service Team?

Yes, there will be numerous opportunities listed on the Serve Projects pages for each location that have room for others to help out on SERVE DAY. Many of the projects are open for you to join them on their serve project. Find one that interests you and contact the leader for questions and details.

 

When is it too late to submit a project?

If you and your LifeGroup are serving together, you can submit your SERVE plans at anytime. But always the sooner the better. If you are wanting to open your project to Life Fellowship promotion, it’s best to have the project available on the website 3 weeks before SERVE starts.

 

Who can I contact with questions or concerns?

Email us at tsmith@lfchurch.tv.

 

At Life Fellowship, We exist to serve others by showing God’s love in practical ways through meeting the needs within our communities and spheres of influence. Simple acts of personal kindness can open hearts to the love of Jesus for both those being served and those serving.

We want every person who is passionate about helping people to find the right opportunities to effectively use their gifts to build up the body of Christ and extend the Kingdom of God.
