Also, seek the peace and prosperity of the city to which I have carried you into exile.
Pray to the LORD for it, because if it prospers, you too will prosper.”
CityServe PDX is an initiative to do just that – serve the city. In a CityServe PDX project you will be a part of different service projects throughout the city of Portland. The passion behind a CityServe PDX project is to listen to the needs of the city of PDX and do what it takes to serve this need.
Each CityServe PDX project will be from 10am to 3pm. It will include various aspects of service: Yard work, Street Clean up, Graffiti removal, Area beautification and much more. It all depends on what is available.
