Download Event

In the book of Jeremiah, God tells us that our welfare is tied to the welfare of our city. We have an incredible opportunity to reach out and serve our city in Jesus' name without asking for anything in return. We will join together for CityServe: a time where our congregation will serve alongside one another as we go outside of our walls and into our community. We know that many LIFE Classes at Providence have ideas on places to serve or places where they may already be serving regularly. We'd encourage you to continue serving there and building relationships. Set something up with your contacts for October 3 and then let us know so we can be praying for you and supporting you. 

On October 3 we'll start the morning at Providence with coffee and doughnuts to fuel us up. We'll gather as teams and pray for the welfare of our city before we go out and serve together.

Registration will open soon.

Create your own Neighborhood Outreach

What better way to serve the city than to serve your own neighbors? This outreach can lead to relationships you can continue to invest in with the hope of sharing the gospel. We’ve already gotten started with some ideas for you that you can find here (link). Once you decide what you are going to do, please register it on the website so we can pray and support you as you take this step of faith.
