December 1 – January 3

Providence, let’s use our gifts and abilities to be a light in our community!

Christmas CityServe is composed of five projects over a 4-week period, with the hope of blessing our city this Christmas season.

Christmas Caroling Outreach

Let’s bring some Christmas cheer to seniors who have been isolated for so long due to the pandemic. We will be setting up in courtyards and outdoor spaces and singing hymns and Christmas carols outside nursing homes and senior living communities. Adults and children are welcome and no experience in singing is required.

  • Register for a location.
  • Make cards and bring candy canes to hand out.
  • Sing!


Neighbor Outreach

Using the website, Bless Every Home, gather data on your neighborhood. Make personal contact with four new people in your neighborhood. Invite neighbors over for a backyard bonfire and engage in conversation on how to get plugged into your neighborhood and Providence.

  • Complete a registration form including your address and subdivision name.
  • Utilize the B.L.E.S.S. model to engage these new neighbors on an ongoing basis.
  • Providence will provide a Christmas mug, thank-you note, and invites to share.


Gifts of Grace for Scholastic Academy

During the shutdown, we partnered with the YMCA to provide academic support to Wake County elementary and middle school students. Some of these families need their physical needs met to get through the winter months. We will be providing a coat, toy, book, and shoes for each scholastic academy child.

  • Complete a registration.
  • You will be assigned a child.
  • Drop off gifts at Providence by December 20.


Business Blowout - Support Staff Focus

Let’s love the support staff that keeps small businesses running. Many restaurants, shops, and small businesses have been hurting financially. Pick a location, meet up as a Life Group, and bless your business with a large turnout or by leaving a big tip with your server or sales assistant.

Business blowout ideas: Restaurants (with waiters), nail salons, movie theaters, bowling alleys.

  • Pick a day and time for your Life Group to do a business blowout.
  • Register your group.
  • Meet as a Life Group, eat, buy, fellowship, and leave a 50% tip!
  • Providence will provide a mug and thank-you cards, you fill it with treats and a special blessing (a big tip).


CityServe Prayer

All events should be covered in prayer or we will be guilty of serving in our own strength! Life Groups can choose to pray together through Zoom or pray individually on your own.

  • Register as a class or individually.
  • Pick a time to pray between December 1 – January 3.
