ForColumbia was founded in 2015 with a simple mission: to bring Christians together to share God’s love by serving our community, side by side. We do this by organizing volunteers annually from Christian churches throughout Columbia to serve individuals, non-profit organizations and other public venues in a city-wide day of service.
Now in its seventh year, more than 75 Christian churches have participated at least once in this effort, including eight congregations that have partnered every year since 2015. In 2020, prior to the global pandemic, we once again had 50+ churches planning to serve our city. Now – in 2021 – ForColumbia will find ways to love and serve our neighbors despite the unique challenges the pandemic continues to bring to normal life.
In years past, we have had more than 2,000 volunteers serve together on our day of serving. As we make plans to serve in 2021, we don’t know how many people will be comfortable joining us.
Though much about our day-to-day lives have changed in the last year, we take comfort in knowing that God has not changed. He is still moving his people to express a sacrificial love for others. We trust that He will continue to bring more and more believers together to serve their neighbors for His glory! We look forward to seeing what He will do in 2021.
