WHAT IS LOVE WEEK?
In 2017, Lakeshore Community Church began asking the question, “If Lakeshore closed its doors, would anyone in the community notice?” That question both haunted and motivated a small group of people at Lakeshore to do everything they could to ensure that never happens. So they began something called LOVE WEEK.
With these trying and unusual times it’s more important now than ever before to demonstrate the LOVE OF JESUS CHRIST to our community. LOVE WEEK is all about LOVING and SERVING people in our community the way JESUS would. LOVE WEEK is all about making a difference outside the church walls and out in the community where people need to hear the LIFE CHANGING MESSAGE OF THE GOSPEL.
BE A LOVE WEEK LIAISON
You can be a part of LOVE WEEK (AUGUST 15 THROUGH AUGUST 20) by serving as a LOVE WEEK LIAISON, helping to organize one of the more than 20 PROJECTS. that will allow the people of Lakeshore to be the hands and feet of Jesus in our community.
LIAISONS work with a local organization in the community to decide on a service project and organize a group of volunteers to complete that project.
We are having two meetings to share the details of LOVE WEEK and what's involved in serving as a Liaison.
- Sunday June 27 after each service (no registration required, just show up).
- Tuesday June 29 @ 7PM via Zoom Video Call
