Outreach | Love Topeka July 2024

July 1 - July 31

Love Topeka is the umbrella name for a variety of initiatives to love our neighbors in Topeka. Our strategy is to partner with local organizations and to discover, develop, and deploy our own leaders who have a conviction and passion to love and bless our City for the glory of Jesus Christ.

This month’s Initiative Opportunities are:

  • The Bridge of Topeka Family Pool Party – Have fun with the kids and families of The Bridge Life Buddies program. Your goal is to create a positive atmosphere to create memories and connections between the families and the Bridge.  Read more about the Bridge Here – https://www.bridgeoftopeka.org/.
  • Habitat for Humanity: House build – Help make progress on the construction of a home for a local family in need. All experience levels are welcome.
  • TRM:
    • “Chosen” watch party – Bring community and belonging to guests of the shelter by participating in a watch party of an episode of “the Chosen”
    • Food serving – Serve a meal to guests of the Rescue Mission homeless shelter.
  • Harvester’s: Stamp Out Hunger Food Drive – In an attempt to help restock the shelves at our local food banks, we will be asking for non-perishable donations at the entrances of Dillons.
  • Prayer time at Washburn Rural Middle School  – Come join students, teachers, and parents in praying for our local schools.
  • Breadbasket Farmers Market volunteer – Help support the ministry at the Farmers Market that serves families on food stamps.
