CityServe began on Thursday, October 6, when more than 100 Pastors attended a luncheon with Mayor John Suthers, asking, "What can we, as followers of Christ, do to serve our City?" The luncheon was followed on Friday night by a high energy, multi-church Worship service where we took up a collection for two local charities that care for local youth: Urban Peak and Kids Hope.
On Saturday, October 8, more than 1,400 volunteers from 20 churches worked together at more than 50 sites all across the city to perform a multitude of service projects. Later that afternoon, we celebrated with a Trunk-or-Treat event. Hundreds of kids and adults come to play games, dance and visit over 40 decorated cars with hosts handing out treats.
On Sunday, we gathered once more to praise God's name for the success of this enormous project. First Pres folks met the seemingly impossible goal of providing more volunteers than ever before: 455 people! The City Engagement team is already talking about CityServe 2017 and we look forward to loving and serving our city with you all again next year!
