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.

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.
