SERVE LOVELAND 2020
SERVE WEEK KICKS OFF AUGUST 9
While this year's Serve Loveland looks different because of COVID, we still have a special opportunity to serve our community — meeting needs and sharing the love of Jesus in practical ways. No serve is too small and we wanted to share some creative ideas of how we can all serve together throughout the week. We are so expectant for God to move in powerful ways as we share acts of kindness with those around us in the name of Jesus.
CHECK OUT THESE SERVE IDEAS!

A FEW REMINDERS
- Go slow- keep your eyes and ears open so you can notice things and people.
- Get eye level with people. Sit on a curb, kneel beside wheelchair, pull up a seat, never hover.
- Don’t assume what people need, ask questions, and listen to understand.
- Call people by name.
- Smile, take a deep breath. We’re doing this with the Holy Spirit and the goal is to spread love.
