This week, July 23-29, is #LovePDX week here at Portland First! Every day this week, we have a project prepared for you to join that shows the love of God to our city. The week will culminate with a Celebration Luncheon following the worship service on July 30.
We want to maximize each opportunity to serve and shine the light of Jesus through social media. Matthew 5:16 says, “In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” With this truth in mind, we want to encourage each person who is on social media and who serves during #LovePDX week to post quality content on social media. Please use the hashtag #LovePDX on all social media posts. Sharing this hashtag allows us to collaborate and share each other’s posts. You can also post the #LovePDX logo by downloading it here.
Consider using the following posts as a guide for each project:
