CityServe

Spring 2017 projects are listed below. You must login to your myPBCRaleigh account to register for a project.

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. Providence holds two CityServe events each year, one in the spring and one in the fall, with the first one being held in the spring of 2014.


Schedule

Saturday, March 25, 2017

We'll meet first thing at the church at 8:30 AM for a rally. Pick up a doughnut, a blue CityServe shirt, and pray together before heading out to the city!
