community impact

 

Saturday, June 9, 2018

Community Impact is an opportunity to serve the elderly, the homeless, agencies that help children, and people with special needs in our community as we show God’s love to them through intentional acts of kindness. As part of Community Impact, we partner with local benevolent organizations in Broward County to provide volunteers to meet their needs. Many of our volunteer opportunities are family-friendly, where you can serve with your young children. Community Impact events are for anyone, regardless of whether they are a member or regularly attend Community. Invite your friends to make a difference by joining us. It’s a great way for them to see Christ at work through the lives of those who love and serve Him.
