CityServe

Serving

Saturday, October 15, 2016, 8:30 am - 12:30 pm

Download Event

In the book of Jeremiah, God tells us that our welfare is tied to the welfare of our city. Through CityServe, we can each use our gifts and abilities to be a light in our community. Our goal is for over 500 people from Providence to serve on the same day alongside one another through various projects all around Raleigh.

We know that many Life Groups 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 15 and then let us know so we can be praying for you and supporting you. Email Beth at  with your project info.

On October 15, 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.
