SERVE.png

“For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.” Matthew 25:35-36

Once a year, hundreds of churches across the world come together to serve their local communities and share the love of God through practical acts of kindness. Here at C3, we are proud to be a part 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 takes place on July 10th. We will be gathering at 9am in the Worship Center to pray over the day before heading out to our projects. Check out the serving opportunities and sign up below!
