JULY 9-16, 2022

God's Love In Action

"But seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the Lord on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare."
Jeremiah 29.7 ESV

 

Local Outreach

Since 2016, Kingsway Church has dedicated (8) days every year to serving our community - to share the love of Jesus in practical ways. Our goal isn’t to promote our church; there’s no hidden agenda. Our goal is to serve; to simply bless people in Jesus’ Name.  Read through the options below for how you and your family can serve. 

Kid's Way SERVE Project 

For the first time in the history of SERVE Week, during Kid's Way on Sunday, July 10th, every kid  (at both locations) will serve, assembling utensil packets for Cathedral Kitchen, an organization that serves the food insecure in Camden County. We're excited to see our preschool and elementary aged kids put God's love in action too!
