At Life Fellowship, We exist to serve others by showing God’s love in practical ways through meeting the needs within our communities and spheres of influence. Simple acts of personal kindness can open hearts to the love of Jesus for both those being served and those serving.We want every person who is passionate about helping people to find the right opportunities to effectively use their gifts to build up the body of Christ and extend the Kingdom of God.
SERVE DAY's are events held in the DeSoto County community throughout the year. Stay tuned for our upcoming dates and times.
SERVE DAY is a day LF Church is going to show the local community that “we love this place”. It is an amazing opportunity to bless and be blessed. Hundreds will go out into our communities and show the love of Christ in real and tangible ways. We encourage every lifeGROUP, every Team, every Family, and Attender to choose a serve project of their own and be the hands and feet of Jesus on SERVE DAY.
We do want to encourage families to serve together on SERVE DAY. There are many projects that are listed for Families or Everyone that are great opportunities to teach kids the importance of putting someone else above ourselves.
Get creative! Assess people and their needs in your neighborhood and around your community. Perhaps there is a widow, single mother, or elderly person that could be assisted by painting their house, cutting grass, or cleaning up the yard. Firefighters, police officers, school resource officers, nursing home residents, assisted living homes, and local business owners are all great people to reach out to and find a way to SERVE! Check out our list of ideas and other options from local service organizations for ways to get involved.
Yes, we definitely would like to know about what your group is participating in. Be sure to register your project under one of the locations.
Your SERVE Project Team is responsible for all of the supplies and costs associated with your serve project. Spend time determining the scope, and plan work based on your group size and commitment level.
Plan on bringing any personal items you may need, like your SERVE Saturday T-shirt, sunscreen, drinking water, tennis shoes, a hat, etc., along with any items pertaining to your serve project such as rakes, gloves, lawnmowers, tarps, work tools, etc. For serve opportunities requiring physical labor, work clothes are a good idea. We recommend not wearing jewelry. Also, check with your leader for what you may need.
If possible, check to see if the weather will pass in enough time to still accomplish your project. If not, make plans to have an inclement weather option in mind. Some suggestions are to visit a nursing home, serve at a local service organization, or clean classrooms at a local school.
If you and your LifeGroup are serving together, you can submit your SERVE plans at anytime. But always the sooner the better. If you are wanting to open your project to Life Fellowship promotion, it’s best to have the project available on the website 3 weeks before SERVE starts.
