From Faith Alliance:
X Days mission: “In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven.” Matthew 5:16
The month of June is X Days month! X Days is a Faith Alliance community service project day in which some of our partner churches’ members go out into the world to be the “eX-ternal” church. Throughout the weeks to come, keep your eyes and ears open for God sightings. You just may see a group of volunteers out in the community serving our neighbors in Jesus name.
What is the purpose of this X Days event?
X Days unifies area churches under one common mission in Jesus Christ, displaying to the community what His church can do together, clearly revealing that the “church” is not a building–it is His people at work to make His name famous and power revealed. Jesus wants us to be His disciples and to spread God’s love! To follow in Jesus’ footsteps we need to do as He did, to be among others, building relationships with them as living reflections of His redemptive love.
Dozens of projects will be done at sites such as: Family Promise of Butler County Day Center, several Butler County foster homes and nursing homes, One Way Farm, Serve City, Reach Out Lakota, Hope’s Closet, Heritage Elementary and 5 West Chester Fire Houses.
Here at Compass Christian Church:

2. Painted Exterior and interior for a family who has close connections to our congregations.
3. Cleaned up brush and did yard work.
