SERVE NOW | January 27
Serve Now is an opportunity to engage as many Christ Church members and friends in service to our community in one single morning as possible. Our goal is serving together but a secondary goal is cultivating a habit of service. This day will expose us to many on-going service opportunities that the church provides and also ones that we can individually serve on our own time.
 
Schedule
8:00 am – Meet at Christ Church (Sanctuary) for orientation and kick-off
8:30 am – Leave for project sites
Most projects will take 2-3 hours; participants can leave from their locations.

What is The Compassion Experience?

This free event features an interactive journey through the true stories of children living in developing countries like the Philippines, Kenya, Uganda and the Dominican Republic. In over 2,000 square feet of interactive exhibit space, visitors will step inside homes, markets and schools — without getting on a plane. Each child’s story starts in poverty but ends in hope.  Located at Christ Church parking lot.  Will take walk-ins, but can register to reserve spot.
