Purpose of Love the Ville

Galatians 6:10 tells us that “as we have opportunity, let us do good to everyone.” Love the Ville exists to provide our congregation the opportunity to do good in our community in the name of Jesus Christ. The purpose of Love the Ville is that simple:  a no-strings-attached blessing to others. Matthew 5:16 is a beautiful summary of our objective, when Jesus states, “…let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.”

Thank you for your interest in serving with one of our Love the Ville projects!

You will receive a confirmation email after submitting this form. If you need to cancel your registration at any time, you will be able to do so through Church Center.

Please complete a separate registration form for all persons ages 10 and older.

Children ages 9 and under are welcome to participate but do not fill out a registration form for them. Simply include them in the parent/guardian’s registration. To keep an appropriate adult to child ratio, parents/guardians are limited to bringing two children ages 9 and under. As the event approaches, project leaders will touch base with registrants in order to provide updated instructions and answer any questions related to the project.


T-Shirts:  The first 150 registrants get a free t-shirt!

Noon Rally Lunch: There will be a lunch for both morning and afternoon Love the Ville volunteers. This will be a great time together to tell stories of the morning events and for the afternoon workers to be fed not only food, but encouragement as they go out.
