Serve Day // August 12, 2023

[ Sign up below ]

We are excited for our 2nd annual Serve Day here at Summit Park Church!  Last year was amazing, but this year is going to even better!   This is a great opportunity to go out and be the hands and feet of Jesus to our community.  We love where we live, and we love serving people where we live!  Serve Day is happening Saturday, August 12.  

We will be having a Volunteer Rally on Friday August 11 at 6:00PM to kick off the event.
You will get to meet with your volunteer team, pick up your shirt, eat dinner and hear from Pastor Scott as we worship and pray together.  This is going to be a great night that will prepare you for Serve Day the next morning!
