The day before Jesus died, he gave one more command to his followers: “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” (John 13:34-35 NIV)

It was a new command, but it was not a new experience for his disciples. As they walked with Jesus moment by moment, they witnessed the living, breathing, authentic love of God - lived out for others. In this four-week series, we will explore how Jesus showed authentic love and served others, and what it looks like for us, as followers of Jesus, to Love Out Loud.

SERVE OPPORTUNITIES
Serve Where You Live
If you’re worshiping with us from outside the San Antonio area, and wondering how you can participate in serve day, we want to encourage you to make this a serve day wherever you live. Reach out to a local church, volunteer with your community, or support a Food Bank or Blood Bank in your area. Make it a next step today, to find a way, in-person, this week, to give of yourself, serve others, and show the authentic love of Jesus.

Children’s Hunger Fund (CHF)
No matter where you live, you can support our partners at Children’s Hunger Fund (CHF) by giving a donation financially. If you live in the United States, you can support CHF by participating in their Operation Food Pak campaign, where they mail empty Food Paks to your home,  you fill and return them to CHF free of charge, and they distribute your filled Food Paks through local churches to children who need the help.

Habitat for Humanity
You can also partner with Habitat for Humanity in your hometown to serve others and support affordable housing. During Serve Day, we’ll be assembling the frame of the house that we’re building to completion this fall. You can serve others by volunteering on the OHC build this fall, or by giving money to fund this home and future Oak Hills Church sponsored homes.
