Serving allows us to add value to our communities and show the love of Jesus in practical and tangible ways. By finding a need and meeting it, we offer hope to the forgotten and healing to the hurting. This annual Serve Day will be made up of thousands of small groups, families and friends deciding that it’s time to make a difference. We can’t wait to see you there!

Everyone is welcome to join a team for Serve Day! Gather a group of friends and create your own project, or join an existing project. And...if you'd like to join a small group to get connected, take a look at our Online Small Group Directory.
Get creative! Assess the needs of people in your neighborhood and local community. Check out a list of ideas in our Project Guide. to help you get started.
It’s exciting to see that we’re all part of something bigger than just our own projects! Registering your project lets us know your plans, how we can best support you, and allows our team to spiritually cover your plans in prayer. Projects that meet practical needs and allow God’s love to be demonstrated to our community are what we are looking for! Register your project here.
Each team is responsible for the costs associated with their project. We recommend spending time planning your project based on your group’s size and commitment level. Your Campus Outreach Coordinator can help with extenuating circumstances.
How do I sign up for a serve project?
Check out the list here for our current projects. New projects are added daily so keep checking if you don’t find a good fit right away. Search by campus to see projects in your area. Be sure to create a separate profile for each person serving.
Our hope is that each Small Group plans and participates in a Serve Day project. If your Small Group needs help getting started, check out our Project Guide and Ideas section for great resources. Your small group can also sign up for an existing project here.
Nope! But to accurately reflect Church of the King when we serve, everyone is required to agree and sign the Dream Team Honor Code. NOTE: Project leaders are required to be Dream Team members.
Bring any personal items you may need during your project: Serve Shirt, sunscreen, water, sneakers (close-toed), a hat, etc. Your Team Leader can confirm any project-specific items you may need to bring such as gloves, rakes, lawnmowers, tarps, work tools, etc. Work clothes are a good idea for serve opportunities requiring physical labor, and we recommend leaving the jewelry and nice shoes at home!
If your Serve Day project is outside, make plans to have an inclement weather option available. Some possibilities include visiting a nursing home, serving at a local service organization, or cleaning classrooms at a local school. For indoor serve ideas, view our list of project ideas.
