"As the Father has sent me, I am sending you." John 20:21

Serve Your City is a church-wide, three-week serving campaign. Each week, we will focus on serving our local communities in three different ways: Giving, Serving, and Loving.

On April 29 & 30, the Church will leave the building! No in-person services will be offered on any North Coast Church campus as we head out into the local community to serve our cities in the name of Jesus. Register yourself, your family and friends or your Life Group for a project today!

Do you have experience in a skilled trade (i.e. carpentry, construction, painting, etc.)?


For 2023, a suggested donation of $23 from each adult will help make Serve Your City possible!  This donation will help support the Serve Your City projects with materials as we go out to serve our non-profit partners and people in the community over the next few weeks and beyond! No matter what your circumstances, any amount helps and is appreciated.


We’re excited to see our whole church serve their community in whatever way is comfortable for you.

Participate in a local community service project with your Life Group, your family, or on your own.  Most in-person service projects will take place the weekend of April 29-30 when the Church will leave the building to serve! (No in-person services April 29-30.)


This is about intentionally loving people. Share your faith with a friend, invite your neighbor over to dinner, pay for the person in line behind you at a coffee shop. To start, ask God, “Who in my house, neighborhood, city, work or school would you have me reach out to?”

Frequently Asked Questions

Where do I start?  You can search for a Serve Your City Project and sign up.

What are the dates for Serve Your City?  The Campaign runs April 15th – May 5th 2023. Many of the projects will take place the weekend of April 29 and 30.   However, there will be additional dates posted throughout the month.  Please check here for Serve Your City Projects.

What are AM shifts vs. PM shifts?  There will be two shifts per day on the weekend of April 29 and 30, one morning (AM) and one afternoon (PM). You may sign up for one shift, or if you’re really motivated, you may sign up for several throughout the weekend.  No meals will be provided so make sure to bring snacks, lunch or water if needed.

What kind of projects can I expect?  There are a wide variety of projects that have been coordinated with our community partners who are in need.  We hope to have projects for every person:  building, painting, gardening, sewing, assembling kits, giving donations, light duty and child friendly. Projects can be sorted by these categories using “filter by” feature and selecting “skill” in the drop down menu.

How do I sign up for a project?  Each campus will have staff on-site to assist with sign-ups on March 4/5th, April 15/16th and April 22nd/23rd before and after service times.  If you can’t make it to a campus, we’ve made it super easy to sign up on your own visiting the Serve Your City Project page.

Are you a skilled professional and want to lead or assist with a project?  Please email us at serveyourcity@northcoastchurch.com and put “Skilled Leader” in the subject line to let us know how you can help.  Skilled professionals needed: carpenters, plumbers, electricians, handyman, landscapers.  You will be notified if there are still openings in your field, but if you don’t hear back by April 3rd, we ask you to please find another project here.

Why is the email confirmation important?  Once you have registered on the Serve Your City website, you will receive an email confirmation which signifies that you’ve signed up correctly.  Depending on the project, you may receive additional communication from the project manager prior to the project date.  If not, simply show up to serve on the day and time noted in your email.

Do I need to bring tools on the project day?  Yes, in some cases.  Each project description will note if tools are needed.  Basic gardening tools you have at home are needed for most gardening projects.  While some construction-type projects may ask volunteers to bring wireless drills and other tools. Please refer to your project description to find out the specific items you should bring. Don’t forget a water bottle, as this will be needed at all project locations.

Who should I email with questions?  Email the help desk at serveyourcity@northcoastchurch.com

Who can I call with questions? Call (760) 330-6700 x 248 and leave a voicemail. Someone will return your call.

What should I wear?  Comfortable clothing for the type of work you will be doing.  Long pants and closed toed shoes are recommended for all projects. In addition, you may bring sunscreen and a hat.

How do I purchase a Serve Your City T-shirt?  Serve Your City t-shirts and hats will be available for sale at each campus: March 4/5th, April 15/16th, April 22nd/23rd before and after services.  $10/each. Cash/check/Credit Card.  Make sure to wear them on your project day.

Are the projects family friendly?   We will definitely have some “family-friendly” projects.  Each project will list whether it is suitable for children.  Some projects are better suited for children over 12 years old, while others might be a good fit for 5 years and older.  Please read the description carefully. Children need to be supervised at all times.

What is the Food Drive and Toiletry Drive during Serve Your City?  Drop of days and times vary by campus.  You can drop off non-perishable foods and/or toiletry kits (see the list of items in the next question).  View campus’ specific drive details.
