We love to create opportunities for our middle and high school students to build community and grow in their faith. Our volunteer leaders do a great job of coming alongside parents and families to help guide students in their walk with God. Here are a few of those opportunities.
Below is a list of what's going on:

Love Agent Week 2022
Strategically Loving with the Heart of God
Be the Change | September 19 - 25, 2022
Here's How it works
Accept the daily challenges below to strategically love someone with the heart of God. There is a different challenge every day. While you’re at it, encourage your friends through your social networks by posting about the daily challenges and using the daily hashtag and #LoveAgentWeek.
Here are the daily challenges:
Love a Neighbor
Take time to meet a neighbor you don’t already know or show some love to a neighbor you’ve been meaning to know better. Here are some ideas: Bake them cookies, help with groceries, help them move in, mow their grass!
Love with a Meal
Love someone by sharing a meal. Here are some ideas: invite someone over to eat supper, buy lunch for a co-worker, take food to a homeless person, donate to a food pantry, serve at a soup kitchen, etc.
Love a Hero
Show love to a community hero; A first responder, civil servant, school teacher, mailman, garbage collector, etc. Here are some ideas: buy them donuts, take them water, buy them lunch, visit a firehouse to say thanks.
Love through Encouragement
Take some time to lift someone up. Give them a call, write them a note, tell them that you see what they're going through or and that you care.
Saying Thank You
Take time to love someone by expressing thanks to someone who has made a difference in your life. Here are some ideas: Call them, write a card and mail it, text them, FB them. Say thanks!!
Random Acts of Kindness
Serve someone without them even knowing it! Pay for the meal of the person behind you in line, mow your neighbor's grass while they are out of town, do another family member's chores for them.
Join "Serve Together Sunday"
A Service Project on Sunday September 26th
As the grand finale of Love Agent Week we are partnering with:
The YMCA: to serve their youth services branch by washing their bus, cleaning up, and weeding their garden
Foster Care Pantry: organizing clothes in their inventory so they can better serve families in foster care.
Nourish NC: Organizing an area of their warehouse.
Instead of our normal worship service at the YMCA we invite everyone to join in on a service project opportunity by showing up ready to serve!
