Our church will have a citywide church SERVE Day on November 4th. SERVE Day is an amazing opportunity to bless others and be blessed. We will go out into our communities and show the love of Christ in real and tangible ways. ReThink Life Church Life Groups will choose a serve project of their own that everyone can do together as a group on SERVE Day, so there will be many ways to get involved.
Most groups are open to new members throughout the semester. Our Life Groups Directory can help you find a group that fits your interest, location and time preference. Learn more about life groups on our website. You can also check out the SERVE Day Booth beginning October 12/15 for Life Group Projects where you will find a list of Life Groups that have projects that have room for you to help them with their project. Simply find a project you like and contact the leader listed.
Yes, we will have one large SERVE project for you to participate in on SERVE day at ReThink Life Church Campus. However we encourage you to partner with a Life Group and join them on their project.
Hopefully, you have selected something to do together, but if you are in need of an idea, you can check out our list of ideas for ways to get involved. We will also have a list of our mission partners that you can contact to help serve.
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!
Yes, we definitely want to know about what project your group is participating in. Make sure you register your group’s project online.
Each life group is responsible for all of the supplies and costs associated with their SERVE project. Spend time determining the scope of your project and plan work based on your group size and commitment level.
Plan on bringing any personal items you may need, like your SERVE Day T-shirt, sunscreen, drinking water, tennis shoes, a hat, etc., along with any items pertaining to your service project such as rakes, gloves, lawnmowers, tarps, work tools, etc. For projects requiring physical labor, work clothes are a good idea. We recommend not wearing jewelry.
If you have an outside project, 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.
