Love Agent Week 2018

 
At Venture Church, we strive to be “God Chasing, Grace Shaped, Love Agents! But it’s not just words… we want to give one another the chance for the rubber to meet the road. That’s why we’re taking a whole week: August 19-25, to have our annual “Love Agent Week!” A different challenge every day.
 
 
Here’s how it works:
Each day, accept a new challenge to strategically love someone with the heart of God. There is a different challenge every day. Each day has a theme… it’s simple. While you’re at it, encourage your friends through your social networks by posting about the day’s challenge and using the daily hashtag and #LoveAgentWeek.
 
Here are the daily challenges:

At this event, we will be giving away 2,500 book bags with school supplies to students in need. Not only that, but we’ll have a chance to show love to families of the community through a huge festival of fun. There will be free food, games, and activities for all ages. Our church will host a tent called the “Love Agent Tent” where people can stop by for creative and fun ways to give back to the community through acts of service. There are many opportunities to volunteer.
