MAKING AN IMPACT WITH 400 HOURS

In the Sermon on the Mount, we are challenged by Christ to let our light shine before men, so they will see our good deeds and give glory to God (Matthew 5:16).  September 10-16, we aim to do just that through our local mission initiative, Impact Week.

What is Impact Week?

It is a time for our church to step out boldly and be the hands and feet of Jesus, do service projects, meet needs, and share the gospel with our community. We want our community to experience a true impact as we coordinate together to serve our city. To that end, we are setting the goal of giving 400 volunteer hours to our community in one week.  Now, 400 might seem like a lot, but if every person who regularly attends our church gave just one hour that week, we would easily surpass that goal. 

HOURS SERVED
