“Let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth.”
1 John 3:18

A huge thank you to all who partnered and participated this year!  We had 755 participants from Vanguard and saw more alumni, staff, faculty and administration this year than ever before.

What Is City Serve?

Since its founding in 2004, City Serve has acted as a catalyst for the Vanguard community to give back to our neighbors through various acts of service. Our students, faculty and staff spend the day in a variety of service projects throughout Costa Mesa and surrounding cities with the goal to simply show Christ’s love in our actions.  This is also a great opportunity to encourage our community into continued service that lasts much longer than the one day.
