Serve-a-palooza

Screen Shot 2019-07-24 at 10.25.02 AM.png

South Lansing Christian Church is passionate about serving our community!

Serve-a-palooza is all taking place on Saturday, August 10, from 10 am to Noon. We have partnered with five area schools and the Marscot Park neighborhood to tackle multiple projects over the city! Check out the display this Sunday in the lobby for more information or to plug into a place to serve. We are encouraging small to serve together.

Project Options:

Lewton Elementary
We will be doing outdoor landscaping at Lansing School System’s Lewton Elementary School. Projects include spreading wood chips, flower bed clean up and making the outside look cared for. Participants will want to bring wheelbarrows, rakes, shovels, etc. Erin Cohoon will be on site that day to coordinate along with some other volunteers and Principal Rich Gutierrez.

Number of participants needed: 30

Dimondale Elementary
Principal Shannon Barker has asked us to complete a number of outdoor landscaping projects. Participants should bring rakes and shovels and wear gloves.

Number of participants needed: 20

Hope Middle School
There are two tasks that need to be completed at Hope Middle School in Holt: weeding the landscaped areas in front of the school that is need of some TLC. Volunteers will want to bring gloves. The school also needs a sign painted. They will supply the paint and brushes. While no painting experience needed, this project will need a couple of people who are neat and pay attention to details because the sign will hang outside where everyone will see it.  

Principal Jennifer Goodman will be on-site to answer questions and offer support.

Number of participants needed: 20

Holt High School
At Holt High School, there are a few things outside we will be doing. The front entrance needs some serious weeding and some more mulch laid down. They also have areas around the ponds cleaned up. Trash blows around from the school and road and gets caught in the long grass. Participants will bring rakes, shovels, and wheelbarrows to move mulch. The school will provide trash bags for the weeds and garbage. 

Number of participants needed: 30

Sycamore Elementary
Sycamore Elementary in Holt has a small project that we will take on. Right outside the main entrance at Sycamore is a 10’ by 40’ garden that needs to either be removed so it can be returned to grass. It’s all weeds and looks awful. After removing, we will put down grass seed.

Number of participants needed: 10

Marscot Park
Lansing Parks and Rec have asked us to repair park benches, pour a small pad of cement, and delimb lower branches at Marscot Park directly behind our church building. Participants should bring gloves, bow saws or chainsaws, and for those who have experience pouring cement, the tools necessary for doing so.

Number of participants needed: 20

Get involved today - there is no better way to love your city than to serve it!

Sam while at GLCC, who joined the faculty here in 2017 as Associate Professor of Old Testament and
Ministry. Carrie has served Christ faithfully as a Children’s Minister and also as a public school teacher
in Tennessee and now in Grand Ledge. Carrie & Sam have 2 children – Elijah and Sophia.
A delicious buffet meal will begin the evening, and on the program will be our GLCC Choral

Easter Gathering

Easter-HD.jpg

Listen to a group of kids on a playground and eventually you’ll hear someone shout, “do-over!” Children speaking Spanish shout “otro vez!” That’s because the concept of a do-over is universal. It’s also elusive, because in life there are very few do-overs. Except at Easter. Easter is God’s ultimate do-over. Death is defeated. Life is resurrected. Christ is Risen! Join us Easter Sunday, April 21 at11 AM as we say, “He is risen indeed!” And learn how Christ has provided the ultimate do-over for each person who claims their second chance.

Continental Breakfast and Coffee is being served between our two gatherings from 10 AM to 11 AM.

Good Friday Gathering

It was a night that changed history. One moment he was there, leading his disciples along. And then, he was gone. He had talked about this moment...that he was to be lifted up. They didn’t get it. Now, it seemed all hope was lost.

Join us at 7 pm on Friday, April 19th as we gather to remember the night Jesus was crucified. We will sing, we will reflect, we will share in communion with one another. We will allow the shadow of the cross to challenge our hearts.

The darkness envelops the silence as we take a break from the holiday jostling to reflect on a mother, a father, an infant and the love of a Heavenly Father who sent him to save the world.

Celebrate with friends, family and neighbors at our 7 PM service. We’ll sing traditional carols bathed in candlelight and revisit a timeless story, pausing to remember God’s gifts as we reflect on the reason for our hope: Jesus.

And, as you leave, you can participate in our annual Donut Drop by taking a box of donuts to people our community relies on: first responders, hospital employees, retail workers and others.

I Love My City Lansing

South_Naz_City.png

Jeremiah 29:7 – “…seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile. Pray to the Lord for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.”

South Lansing Christian Church will be participating in I Love My City on Sunday, April 30. This will be our third year joining with other churches and faith-based, not-for-profit organizations throughout Lansing for one simple purpose: to bless our city.

We plan to come together on Sunday morning from 10:00 - 10:30 for a time of worship, communion, and a devotional thought, before disbursing throughout the city to impact our friends and neighbors. Kid's City will not be open that Sunday; this is a family activity in which you work alongside your kids, modeling what it means to serve your community.

The stories from last year’s event were amazing. A couple thousand people from over a dozen churches scattered throughout Lansing making a difference. We want to do so again this year!

Here are a few of the projects that are planned for I Love My City 2018:

  • Great Lakes Christian Home – We will be washing residents’ windows and tidying up their landscaping.
     
  • Clothe the Naked - We'll be separating clothing, organizing them and the packaging the kits. This new Serve25 ministry is proving clothing to needy people in hospitals or jails, where they don't have appropriate clothing, or where a hospital cut their last clothing off for medical purposes. 
     
  • Oil changes – We will be changing oil for single parents, senior citizens and those on a fixed income. If you need an oil change CLICK HERE to register.
     
  • Marscot Park expansion – We will continue cleaning out the woods between our church’s property and Marscot Park.

CLICK HERE to sign up for projects all around the city!

These are exciting projects! But we also want to include projects in which you might have a personal interest. If you or your small group has a project in mind for April 29 we want to hear about it. It can be something that your group does by yourself or, if you want to dream bigger, it can be a project that you invite others to participate in. You can send your project ideas for consideration here.

This was a great event last year, and we expect it to be EPIC again this year. But in order for that to happen, we need your participation.
