We see Jesus change our community when we serve our neighbors with compassion! That's why our whole campus is serving Elkhart County together on one day. We'll send out groups of people to partner with our supported local agencies for the morning. Wear your "Jesus Changes Lives" T-shirt if you have one and pick where you'd like to help. Sign up for the next Serving Saturday on the Events Page!
