ServeRDU Week 2020

Be the Church.

ServeRDU Week is our annual, strategic week of service where we mobilize the members of our church and highlight the amazing work of our community partners to meet tangible needs of our neighbors in the Triangle.

As you might imagine, things are going to look different this year. But our goal hasn’t changed: We want to use ServeRDU Week to pray, serve, and connect with our city as we continue to be the church in our communities, even when we can’t go to church. Our hope is that ServeRDU Week will be a catalyst for you to engage in ministry opportunities year-round.

Be the Church: Pray

We believe that one of the ways we serve RDU is by praying for RDU, and with the disproportionate impact that COVID-19 has had on marginalized communities in our city, we want to spend time praying for our neighbors.

day of fasting and campus prayer nights

Monday, Aug. 10

We invite you to kickoff ServeRDU Week by fasting and praying with us on Monday before joining your campus for a virtual campus prayer night at 7 p.m.

Campus prayer nights will take place in each campus' Facebook group.

Be the Church: Serve

We won’t be gathering for huge projects this year, but huge projects were never the point. We serve best by filling the needs of the hour—and the needs today are for our community partners to receive various items. By serving them, we can help them meet the needs of the vulnerable in our city.

During ServeRDU Week, we’ll be asking for you to donate items for our supply drives. We’ll also be hosting blood drives around the Triangle, as the need for blood continues to be high during the pandemic.

While the primary ways we will serve our communities during ServeRDU Week are through supply drives and blood drives, some campuses will have limited service opportunities available.

Be the Church: Connect

We encourage you to learn about the work of the organizations that partner with your campus in order to meet needs in your community. The best way to learn about the where, how, and why of serving is to sign up for our virtual ServeRDU Neighboring 101 training. You can also connect with us on social media.
