During the weekend of October 27-29th, 3,932 volunteers across our 8 churches joined together to serve in 222 service projects throughout the cities we call home for a combined 17,711 hours of service. We painted fences, threw parties, pulled weeds, gave to those in need, removed graffiti, installed cabinets, and more as we wanted to show our cities how much we love them and how much we care.
Thank you to everyone who gave, served, and showed up to make a difference!
Part of our hope with I ❤️ CV was that our church community would see how easy it is to serve our community. At EastLake Church we have two primary ways to get connected- ministry teams and growth groups. By developing ongoing relationships with our city we have the opportunity to continue volunteer service throughout the year. Your growth group or ministry team is welcome to view our serve menu of partner organizations, reach out with the contact person, and schedule a date to serve!
ELC has some landscaping, clean- up and painting supplies left from our big Serve Weekend. If you would like to check some of these out for your serve project email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know what you need!
“In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father.”
