A WORLD TO LOVE: OUTREACH SCHEDULE
Operation: Rest Easy
Our team will clear out old beds, perform clean-up and apply paint to several rooms at the Lancaster Homeless Shelter. This is a large project and we need a large team!
This event will take place on Saturday Oct 5th and Sunday October 6th.
Bubbles and Burgers
Join us as we offer the people of our community a free car wash and extend the blessing by handing out a free Whopper coupon to every car we wash. This is no fundraiser and there are no strings attached, just an opportunity to serve generously. Sign up and show up for a shift spent washing cars!
This event will take place on Saturday September 28st from 9am-1pm.
Bless the Boulevard
Come out to the Farmers Market on Lancaster Blvd and ‘Bless the Blvd.’ We are going to come alongside our existing “Prayer on the Blvd” team by handing out bottled water in addition to offering prayer, all while our worship team plays outside.
This event will take place on Thursday September 26th from 6:30pm-8:00pm.
Go-Global: Missions Training
Join us on Tuesday nights for an 8-week study on God’s heart for the nations. Operation Worldview is a time of instruction, video and discussion groups aimed at those who have a heart to learn more about missions work at home and abroad.
This event starts on Tuesday September 17th from 7:00pm to 8:30pm at the Desert Vineyard and runs for 8 weeks.
Mexico Loft House Build and Delivery
A few times a year our parking lot is turned into a construction zone where dozens of people spend their day constructing the large portions of a loft home which will be taken the following week down to a family living in extreme conditions, and a team will put the finishing touches on the home for the family, all at no cost to them.
The Loft House build takes place on October 5th and the trip to deliver the homes will be October 11-13.
