Love the City exists to engage the needs of our city as we seek to cultivate and create a redemptive environment by sharing God's love, for God's glory, and the good of our city.
Since nobody will ever remember all that, we just say "Love the City."
Upcoming and Ongoing LOVE THE CITY Projects:
2013 LTC events to come...
We have several women who serve at the Pregnancy Resource Center from Foothills Church. There are several ways to get involved. You can serve as a counselor, help with donations at their facility, help with cleaing and maintenance, and much more.
If you are passionate about kids and have one hour a week to tutor a child at Alcoa Elementary School then Kids Hope is for you. Join our growing team of Kids Hope Mentors today.
Every first Saturday of the month, a group from Foothills Church serves at the Second Harvest warehouse and helps with donations, cleaning, and more. This is a great ministry for families with young children.
Every 4-6 weeks, our Food 4 Kids Team packs backpacks for underprivileged children in our local school systems. In partnership with Second Harvest, every month we give out close to 300 bags of food to children who wouldn't have food if it wasn't for this program. This is a great ministry for families with young children.
Every Tuesday from 3:30-5:30, a group from Foothills Church serves at the MLK Center in Alcoa. This group is largely made up of high school students and middle school students who have a passion for sharing the love of Jesus with children. Join this team today!
