AUGUST 28 10AM - 2PM Jesus was asked what the greatest commandment was. He replied “Love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength. And love your neighbor as yourself.” We are called to love our neighbors, no exceptions. That is why every August St. Luke’s focuses on bringing hope to the world by serving our local community. Join us for I Love My City as we gather servants of all ages and send them out into Indianapolis (and beyond) to serve and give back together. Because one day can make a world of difference!
