Challenge 2015 - Love Out Loud

Jesus said: “You must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your mind... [and] Love your neighbor as yourself.’ [Matthew 22:37-39 abridged]

On Saturday afternoons at Challenge we take what we're heard about following Jesus and what we've experienced in worshipping Jesus and we head into the community to serve others in the name of Jesus! We call this serving time at Challenge Love Out Loud. In this blog post we wanted to share with you the list of serving opportunities our youth and leaders took part in during Challenge 2015.
