If you want to prepare for the above SERVEOpps or explore connections between serving the community and following Jesus, join us for Grow & Go!  Once/month we meet for Bible Study focusing on Christ’s heart for the poor, reflection and preparation to serve at our local outreach partners, fellowship, and prayer.  Participants are then equipped to serve on SERVEOpps (i.e., local service opportunities) offered twice monthly.  Parents are also equipped to prepare their children for these service opportunities.  Get in touch with megan@lacanadapc.org or find out more through this video or this sample curriculum.  The class is open to anyone, so join us!
