An opportunity for Michigan District Nazarene Churches to demonstrate God’s love in action.
The purpose of I Love My City/Town is to seek the peace and prosperity of your great city or town! What would it look like to have every business, every neighborhood, every church, loving your city/town for one full day during the year? How could your city/town be impacted if once a year we all Labor For Our Neighbors together! The entire District is invited to serve.
... seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you
... Pray to the LORD for it, work for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper."
The strategy is simple: See a need your church can respond to and meet. Ask your people what needs they see in your community, in your neighborhood, or perhaps the school where their children attend and make a plan to meet that need.
Steps to Make this Happen
- Each church designates a leader with a small team to plan the day. Allow the entire church to suggest different projects in your community to this leadership team. The Leadership team would investigate the projects and determine which projects could be accomplished on May 5th.
- Once projects have been established, a team leader would be appointed to each project. Tools and supplies would be acquired before the big day.
- T- Shirts will be available for purchase for everyone who signs up to participate. Order Form Coming Soon.
- Designate a photographer to document your day. Post on facebook and share with the church.
