Dear XRDS Family,

Let’s ENGAGE our broader community during August Mission Month and show the love of Jesus in tangible and practical ways. There is a Corona-friendly outreach opportunity for every LIFEgroup, family and individual each Saturday in August. We encourage LIFEgroups to participate in at least one outreach, but you can do them all if you want! Some projects are area and time specific while others can be done anywhere, anytime. If your LIFEgroup has chosen an outreach, but you would like to participate in more, you are most welcome to sign yourself up.

We encourage you to use these outreach moments to invite those you meet to our next Alpha Course starting on September 22.

Children are welcome to participate in almost all the outreach activities.
