How to be Impactful: 30 Group Community Service Project Ideas

We as Christians are to engage the community and make an impact for Christ. If you’re part of a business or church that is looking for ways to make an impact in your community, this list of community service project ideas is for you. You’ll need to evaluate the true needs of your unique community, as the needs of different areas vary. Carrying out the planning and operations of community service projects can be complex, so LifeEquip encourages you to reach out to us if we can provide support. These ideas are great for large scale programs or partnerships, but many of these ideas could also be contributed to on an individual level.
