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.

Ways To Serve Your Neighbors
We want to celebrate outreach in our city. Register your neighborhood below if you plan to participate! Starting November 19, you can pick up festive invitations at Next Steps to invite your neighbors to your event.
Christmas Cookie Exchange
For a cookie exchange, bake two or three dozen of your favorite cookie, and invite neighbors to do the same. When you get together, have everyone trade cookies so you leave with a good variety. Use this time to chat and begin gospel conversations.
Bake and Take
This concept is truly self-explanatory. Bake your favorite tasty Christmas treat, and take it to your neighbors. This is a great way to show hospitality!
Who doesn't love a good dinner party? Decide on a festive theme and run with it. Potluck-style is always a great option. Spend your dinner party getting to know your neighbors better, and share the true meaning of Christmas.
Christmas Craft Party

These are just a few ideas to get you started! You know your neighbors best. Brainstorm together and decide on a fun activity where you can build relationships and begin gospel conversations!
