When the gospel takes root in our hearts it naturally comes out of us. One of the ways it "gets out" is through service both in the church and in our community.
Working side by side people not only gives you a chance to meet others, but it also really meets needs in a tangible way.
As a church we will be getting out to bless Valparaiso by taking on work projects alongside the ministries we partner with and serving the poor and needy in our city.
We will meet on Saturday, October 3rd at 8:15a in the Well at Calvary.
We will provide donuts and coffee, pass out t-shirts, get fired up, pray and then head out to our projects.
