Serve Our City

SERVE DAY 2020

Serve Day provides churches across the world with opportunities to serve their local communities and share the love of God through practical acts of kindness. Our hope is that serving others becomes our focus throughout the year. Simple acts of selfless love can open hearts to Jesus, and together we can make a difference.

On Saturday July 11th, Manna Church will partner with churches all over the world to serve our local communities. You can view and sign up for SERVE Day Project below!

If you cannot serve with us on July 11, know that we are continuing with mobile food pantries through the summer and still have team openings on July 17 and 31. Sign ups are located at the bottom of the SERVEday listings!
