life group "serve" opportunities

"Feed the hungry, and help those in trouble. Then your light will shine out from the darkness, and the darkness around you will be as bright as noon" Isaiah 58:10


Outreach Value #5: God has placed us here. Not somewhere else. Therefore, we will prioritize mission's endeavors and the establishment of Kingdom partnerships in Hanford and Kings County.


To make a selection for your Life Group Serve project, email Jennifer Butts at robjenbutts@gmail.com.

Once your selection has been confirmed, that service time will be marked as CLOSED. 

All submissions should be in at least two weeks before the event and no later than October 1st.
