What is Let's Go Week?

Look Up

The first step in serving is to look up which opportunity works best for you. There are several different things you can do, as well as creating your own serving opportunity by "choosing your own adventure."

Sign Up

Once you've found the opportunity that you want to serve in, the next step is to sign up. We encourage you to find other people in your family or in your small group to come serve with you!

Show Up

The final step in serving is to show up! We will send you an email with a list of things to do before serving, and we encourage you to share on social media so we can celebrate together!

Serving Opportunities

Please Note

Please do not bring any extra people to serve who have not registered for the event. Although it sounds helpful, our serve organizations have specified the number of people allowed and we want to honor this.

Choose Your Own Adventure

Who do you know that needs help with a task, cleaning or organizing? Which elderly neighbor could use help in their yard? There is no limit to how you can share your time, talent, and encouragement- whether with family, friends, or your small group - register your adventure!
