Go. Serve. Love.
These three words describe how we seek to obey God and compassionately serve others. This is our quest. An external focus that meets the needs of others is something extremely close to God’s heart. As we go, serve, and love in our backyard and around the world we get a chance to partner with God and be part of His plan to bring hope to the world. With words of love and works of love we want to selflessly serve our neighbors, schools, and communities while helping the defenseless, marginalized, and oppressed. We do this in our own backyard and through strategic partnerships around the world. We do all of this without expecting anything in return. We do this because it’s what Jesus would do.
Go. Serve. Love. In Our Backyard.
Love Days are our church-wide initiatives where we simply serve our surrounding communities. These Love Days are exciting events where we get a chance to make a difference right where we live. Through partnering with organizations, schools, and ministries, we have the opportunity to meet practical needs while serving others without expecting anything in return.
ValleyPoint partners with ministries and organizations right here in the Delaware Valley, who are committed to making a difference. Go. Serve. Love. in our backyard gives us a chance to repair and restore while making a difference where God has placed us.
April 25th collection Love day!
UrbanPromise Wilmington is dedicated to equipping children and young adults with academic achievement, personal growth, and leadership skills. For 20 years, UrbanPromise has worked with Wilmington’s most under-resourced children and young adults through our schools, UrbanPromise School (elementary) and the UrbanPromise Academy (high school), as well as through After School and Summer Camps.
The summer camp program is the most extensive program they run. UrbanPromise offers a free camp for 6 weeks of summer to any child in the city of Wilmington, and typically, over 550 children will attend one of the 7 camps located throughout the neighborhoods of the city.
A team of writers creates our 6-week curriculum, including Bible, rec classes, art, and an academic-based class called Zany Brainy. We weave the gospel and the truth of Jesus Christ into our Bible lessons, craft projects, rec classes, and even into our crazy-fun skits! Hearts are transformed in the campers, parents, teen StreetLeaders, interns, work team members, volunteers, and staff!
As part of our Compassion Efforts, on April 25th, please bring any of the following items to one of our gatherings, as we will be collecting them for the UrbanPromise Summer camps.
