"SUMMER SERVE" is about being intentional in showing God's love to those around us. Each week ChristWay will focus on serving a different population group. Simply pray about how God would have you serve that group and then follow your heart. Just do it! Lastly, encourage others to serve by sharing anonymously what you did, and we'll post it to social media.

Week of July 2-Serve a co-worker or classmate
Week of July 9-Serve your neighbor
Week of July 16-Serve an underprivileged individual or group
Week of July 23-Serve an informed individual or group
"In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in Heaven." Matthew 5:16
