Great Day of Serving

"Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms." - 1 Peter 4:10 


On October 16 (9:00am-4:30pm), Christ Community Church will mobilize every adult and student from all five campuses to serve our communities together.

Our goals: 1) Make Jesus known in the community. 2) Inspire and equip our church family to serve as a part of our regular rhythm of life.

Serving projects run 9am-1pm. And then, we celebrate! Gather at 2pm with other volunteers at an ALL CHURCH CELEBRATION at the St. Charles Campus for story sharing and big festival fun.
