Serve Sunday is a foundational element of who we are at Revolution22. Four to five times a year, we close down services and host volunteer opportunities throughout the valley. Our mission in these service days is to be the hands and feet of Jesus and to create relationships that allow God’s love to shine through.
Jesus commands us to be on mission with people. We, as Revolution22, have declared it our creed to love God and love others, and the way in which we serve one another is a key element of expressing Christ’s love to the world.
In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.
Relationship is at the heart of what we’re doing with Serve Sunday. In the four years Serve Sunday has been an element of Revolution 22, some incredible elements of our vision have taken root and begun to sprout. We want this vision to continue to grow and flourish and produce abundant fruit. Serve Sunday is more than just a two dimensional element of who we are. We want its roots to be so intertwined in the foundation of who we are as Rev, as people of His church, that these roots have the strength to reach far and wide into our community. That He would be glorified in our outreach. That we would not be known by our own names, but His.
The purpose of these Sundays is to give us a taste of what that looks like. To serve our savior and share His love. To stir up a desire in our hearts to be on mission, not just on the four or five Sundays a year we shut down services and host projects. Our vision is to see Serve Sundays become relational connections between nonprofits and other groups and our church body. We want serving to be more than something you do to fulfill your “churchly duties”. We want to grow hearts so passionate for Jesus that a natural outpouring of that love is serving others.
As part of God’s Kingdom on earth, Revolution22 is committed to serving. We strive to make Serve Sundays a centerpiece at our table. We want relationship to be at the heart of serving. If you have an idea, or maybe you know of an organization that could be blessed by volunteers, we encourage you to reach out to them to see how you can create that relationship. This is such an important element when we look at our big picture vision for these Serve Sundays. We want to be the hands and feet of Jesus, and ‘we’ has to be everyone who calls Revolution22 home.
We encourage our Gospel Community groups to serve together, but you don’t need to be part of a Gospel Community to serve. In fact you don’t even need to come to Rev22; if you want to join please email us and bring a friend.
