From The Seats To The Streets

Let’s get out of our seats and hit the streets for HOPE Week 2018! Our goal is to be the hands and feet of Jesus for our local community. Each day of the week, we have daytime and evening outreach projects and we’re asking YOU to get out there with us to make a difference! Projects are listed below and there are opportunities for all skill levels and abilities. All volunteers must sign up to participate and will receive a Hope Week t-shirt. We will finish off the week Saturday night at White Marsh, with our 5:30 worship experience, followed by an Outdoor Family Fun Night!

We are excited to announce that our HOPE WEEK sign-ups are now FULL!  (Over 450 volunteer volunteer positions!) Online sign-up is now closed. Please contact hope@cclife.tv with all questions and concerns.
