The Body of Christ sharing the Love of Christ

Join us as we serve our city!

 

OUR DESIRE

 
Over the course of the last several years there has been a growing desire in the hearts of Christ Followers in Norfolk to come together with other Believers to do something intentional and meaningful as the larger Body of Christ. To Norfolk With Love is designed to do just that. TNWL is a community-wide day of service where followers of Jesus from every denomination and creed join together to serve side-by-side to demonstrate the love of Christ to our city. Our dream is that as we momentarily lay down some of our differences and take up loving projects of all kinds around the city, we can show our community and the world a better way. Will you join us?
 
 
 
A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. 
 
 John 13.34-35
 
 

THE DETAILS

Saturday – September 11th – 2021
 
Saturday, September 11th, 2021 is our fourth annual To Norfolk With Love event. We are organizing projects all around the city which benefit our city, non-profit organizations and individuals in need in our community. No matter what your ability level is, we have a project that you can volunteer to participate in. Event Day Registration and Check-In will begin at 8:00am, a Send-Off Prayer and Celebration at 8:40 and Project Kick-Off at 9:00. A free shirt is guaranteed for everyone who registers by September 1st.
 
 
NEW THIS YEAR!!
 
FREE CHILDCARE!!!  
You saw that right.  To Norfolk With Love is partnering with a great local child care center to offer you and your family FREE child care during the event.  Click Northern Hills Child Care Center to learn a little more about them.  Unless you’ve got a rockstar of a 5-year old, a three hour service project isn’t too high on their priority list. We get it!  For that reason we have created a great partnership with NHCCC to make sure that care is available for all kids, infants thru approximately 8 years old.  Pre-registration is REQUIRED in order to secure your kiddos a spot.  Age appropriate care will be provided by Northern Hills trained and caring staff and you can be assured that they will be in good hands.  Drop off time 7:45-8:30 and pick up time is noon-12:30.  
 
Again, registration is required so please register your child(ren) when you register for the event.  You can register here!
 
 
THE AFTER PARTY!!!  
Who doesn’t love a good party?!?!  At the end of each of the previous TNWL events, we have been excited, thrilled and overjoyed, yet we’ve also felt something was missing.  We wanted to hear what work was accomplished, we wanted to hear people share stories, we wanted to be able to celebrate the wonderful ways God’s love was shown to our community.  And now we can!  The “After Party” will run from approximately 12-1 and will offer a chance to get hydrated, eat some great food and to hear and share stories over the table.  More details to come soon, but let’s get ready to serve and to celebrate together!

GIVE  To serve on this scale requires financial support. We have a generous donor who has faithfully supported this event, but would love to see others join in the effort. The more resources we have, the larger the impact we can make for the Kingdom of God.
 
TELL  Spread the news of the event! People in our community are hungry to serve. The single biggest obstacle to making this event grow is awareness. Share the information with your friends, family, co-workers and church!
