Love Week

Love Week 2019

For Love Week 2019, we went out into our community and shared the love of Christ. Groups met at different times during the week and people participated in as many of the projects as they liked. 
We kicked off Love Week by meeting for prayer and then having a car wash at the church.
After a great week of serving with one another, we celebrated together with dinner.

Saturday, July 28th 2:00-5:00PM

Love Week was kicked off with a free community car wash at Bethany Church. We washed over 45 cars and shocked many drivers as we refused tips to demonstrate the “free gift of love from God”. 
This was a kid-friendly activity. 

Sunday, July 28th 6:00-8:00PM

Our youth group loved on local shoppers and gave the employees of  Gateway Overlook stores a break by returning the carts. When there were no more carts to put away they decided to pick up trash from the parking lots. 
This was NOT a kid-friendly activity.

Pastor CJ’s LifeGroup handed out cold drinks at Lake Elkhorn. They met at the park and were ready to share God’s love by offering people free water, Gatorade and popsicles.
This was a kid-friendly activity.
