"For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve others and to give his life as a ransom for many."   - Mark 10:45

What is Summer of Service?

Summer of Service is not a one-day-fits-all initiative, rather a season of posturing ourselves towards a heart of servitude. Summer of Service provides an opportunity to serve as a church family and reach our local community with the love of God through practical acts of kindness. Simple acts of selfless love can open hearts to Jesus, and together we can make a difference!

Summer of Service Opportunities

Pick one project or a few. Serve as a family, life group or with a few friends for even more fun!

Back to School can provide a big financial strain on many families. Let’s help relieve some of this burden while having some fun too. July 27 from 10-12:30  is our GO Back to School Bash, where our GO neighborhood families will play fun activities and receive a backpack full of age appropriate supplies. You can participate by donating to our Back to School Blessing Fund, helping to pack supplies on Wednesday, July 24, volunteering at the distribution event on Saturday, July 27.

Opportunities available July 31-August 9

Teachers, administrators, and school professionals work so hard, that we would love to bless them by serving breakfast. We will create a beautiful spread of grab and go style breakfast food for the school personnel. There will be opportunities to help prep the food trays, serve, set up, and tear down the breakfast. We will be blessing Mariner High, Mariner Middle, and Oasis Elementary North this year.
