Canceling Sunday Services to Serve the Community

Next month, West Ridge Church will be canceling Sunday services to take part in Community Makeover, a weekend of churches coming together to serve in their community.  The makeover takes place July 23-25 all over Metro Atlanta. Each church communicates with local organizations to fund and develop service projects in their area. Last year 35 churches and over 4,000 volunteers teamed up to clean, landscape, plant, weed, repair and rebuild. It’s an incredible opportunity to be the church outside of the walls of the church.

Community Makeover is an event hosted by Engage Atlanta, an organization dedicated to introducing people to the love of Christ through community transformation.  West Ridge helped launch Engage Atlanta to create alliances between churches whose denominations and differences have long kept them apart. This allows volunteers to experience the unity of the Church by serving together and engaging the community.

To be a part of any of the service projects during Community Makeover go to their website to find a complete list of projects and registration information.

This year 77 churches are participating in Community Makeover. Here’s a sample list:
