LOVE DOES 2022

Love Does Sunday - August 21

We will meet at 9:15am for ONE service then go out and BE the Church...

Love Does is more than just a single serve event, it's a way of life! On Love Does Sunday we come together for ONE short worship service at 9:15am, then disperse to BE the Church for the people and places in need throughout the Miami Valley.  Love Does provides an amazing opportunity for you, your life group, friends, family, and anyone else you know to engage in serving needs in our community.  Let's serve together! Scroll down and check out the project list and use the form to sign up. You can also give to Love Does by clicking the button below. 

It's Going to be a GREAT Day of Serving!

Check out all the great projects.

“You are the light of the world—like a city on a hilltop that cannot be hidden. No one lights a lamp and then puts it under a basket. Instead, a lamp is placed on a stand, where it gives light to everyone in the house.  In the same way, let your good deeds shine out for all to see, so that everyone will praise your heavenly Father." 
- Matthew 5:14-16
