Join us for 1D2G to make a difference in our community and around the world!
Each year, we spend a Saturday in September serving together as a church. We call that day of church-wide service One Day to Go. One Day to Go is not intended to replace a day-to-day attitude of serving others in need. Instead, it is designed to cultivate and strengthen that attitude by showing those who don’t serve regularly the joy of serving others in God’s name and by providing new and different opportunities for those who have already developed a heart to serve. Although One Day to Go is a single day dedicated to serving others as a body, we hope that your experience opens your heart to see how God is glorified when we each respond to His call to serve those in need, not just for a single day, but as a regular part of our lives.
