Serve Saturday

October 31st | 9:30am -12:30pm
Lubbock Dream Center

Serve Saturday is a day to Love on our City by showing that love serves. From 9:30 am-12:30 pm on October 31st, you'll come together with other individuals, families, and groups looking to impact our city in a tangible way. There is a spot for everyone. Now's your chance to be the change you want to see in our community. Love Works!

Serve Projects:
  • Adopt-a-Block
    Pull out the stroller and gather the kids for this family friendly activity.  We need an army to do a massive trash pick-up across the Slaton-Bean Neighborhood.  And while we’re at it, we will knock on doors to register families for our Thanksgiving Turkey Give Away.

  • Helping Hands
    Grab your toolbox and come prepared to construct porches and build bookshelves out of pallets to bless a Lubbock neighborhood.  

  • Prime Time
    This is an opportunity to help care for the COTR widows.  If you can do small repairs, yard work, or meal prep this is the option for you.
