Are you looking for an opportunity to be a world changer? Every Spring Break we take middle school and high school students to serve the homeless, poor, and marginalized in the Tenderloin district of San Francisco. Join us for the SF City Impact Interest Meeting on Saturday, December 10 after our Student Gatherings (about 8 pm) in the Block Basement to hear about how to get involved with this incredible opportunity. Parents are encouraged to attend this informational meeting. The dates of the trip are April 10-14, 2017. Registration available on December 10.
Join all your Encounter friends to serve at MSM Winter Camp. Spend the weekend doing dishes and bonding with your friends. Only $50 for a weekend at Woodleaf. Space is limited!
Imagine Christmas being a season you don’t look forward to. Not because of the craziness of the shopping, the parties, and those huge family meals – but because you don’t actually have the resources to do any of that. No shopping, no parties, no big meals – a significant number of families in our community simply don’t have the means to experience Christmas like the majority of us. Christmas Around Towne changes that.
On Saturday, December 17th, hundreds of families will come together for an incredible Christmas experience. They will be treated to a fantastic meal, enjoy the opportunity to shop for gifts for their family members, have a great time hearing the Christmas story, and experience an event designed just for them where they are cared for by hundreds of volunteers from our local churches.
Lakeside Church will be part of the event, hosting the shopping mall experience here on our campus. As a part of that we will also be staffing a toy store for families to shop, which will sit alongside other stores offering clothing, baby items, women’s and men’s items and more – all manned by other churches in our community.
You can be a part of this event by serving these families during the event on December 17 or volunteering to help in Little Steps Child Care to watch children while their parents shop.
There are many opportunities to serve as part of Christmas Around Towne. You can serve here at Lakeside, or at other locations in our community. Click below to see a full list of available opportunities!
