connect community groups

SERVE THE CITY WEEK is a time where our groups cease their regular meeting rhythm and actively engage in loving people and serving our city.

November 22-28, 2020

The goal: our city would experience the love of Jesus through the hands and feet and efforts of our groups.

Join in one of two ways:

1. Love your neighbour. Love your neighbourhood. Choose who and how you will serve as a group and do that during the week.

2. Register to serve - we've curated a list of service opportunities for you. Decide as a group which opportunity you'd like to engage in, register, and serve together during the week. (see list below)
