Great Day of Service 2015
Saturday, March 14
Jesus said, “You are the light of the world…let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in heaven” Matthew 5:16
During the Great Day of Service, we unite with other churches in the tri-county area to share the light of Jesus Christ with the world. As messengers of God we hope to strengthen the witness and unity of the Church through our service together.
This is not just one day for us to serve. It is designed to introduce us to the many agencies around our community that faithfully serve others. This day is intended to launch us into a deeper relationship with these agencies that we may serve with them throughout the year.
