Read: “Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship.” Romans 12:1 (NIV)
Reflect: In 2018 thousands of us gathered together across the EastLake Church Network to serve our communities during Serve Weekend. We were at schools, community centers, serving food, packing backpacks, working garage sales, painting, weeding, planting and more! It is truly amazing what can happen when we team up together.
One aspect of our project in Rice Canyon in Chula Vista, was to spread out a HUGE pile of mulch over a large area of the park. To be honest, it looked like a daunting project. But the 40 volunteers on site jumped into action and had that mulch loaded, hauled, dumped, and spread out in under an hour. The transformation was amazing, but the teamwork and attitude of hard work and joy was even more amazing. We can’t wait to see all that gets accomplished this year during Serve Weekend and to hear the stories that come with it!
