I Love My City

I Love My City | September 17 | A Day of Serving

St. Luke's Outreach has collaborated with several different organizations around Indianapolis to provide YOU with an opportunity to serve. We have 1,000 VOLUNTEER spots open and ready for YOU!

Our Kick-Off starts at 9AM, but you’ll want to arrive early to enjoy coffee and breakfast treats from Chef Joseph. During the Kick-Off in the sanctuary, we'll be led in worship by our Praise Choir (sign up in Serving Made Simpler below!) and worship band, and challenged to serve with a word from Senior Pastor, Rob Fuquay. We will then be deployed around Indianapolis to LOVE our city at one of the projects below!

There is no registration cost to participate! However, your donation will help us fund the expenses and projects for the day.

September 17, 2022

Jesus was asked what the greatest commandment was. He replied “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength. And love your neighbor as yourself.” We are called to love our neighbors, no exceptions. That is why every year St. Luke's focuses on bringing hope to the world by serving our local community. Join us for I Love My City as we gather servants of all ages and send them out into Indianapolis (and beyond) to serve and give back together. Because one day can make a world of difference!

Join Us!

We are called to be the hands and feet of Jesus ~ walk and serve with us in September.
