SERVE Day is a day LF 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 Saturday.
SERVE Saturday 2017 takes place on September 23, 2017.
Will there be childcare ?
We do want to encourage families to serve together on SERVE Saturday. There are any projects that are listed for Families or Everyone that are great opportunities to teach kids the importance of putting someones 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 our list of ideas for 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 Saturday Serve Project our group is planning ?
Who pays the costs associated with our Serve Project (supplies, travel expenses, etc.) ?
The Serve Project Team is responsible for all of the supplies and costs associated with their serve project. Spend time determining the scope, and plan work based on your group size and commitment level.
What should I bring on SERVE Saturday ?
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. More info may be presented during SERVE Saturday Campus Rally 8:30 AM on every Life Fellowship Church Campus.
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 page that have room for others to help out on Serve Saturday. Many of the projects are open for you to join them on their serve project. These opportunities will be posted on the Serve Projects page. Find one that interests you and contact the leader for questions and details.
