One Big Love

What is One Big Love?

One Big Love is an event put on by the Lawrence Youth Network (LYN) to engage our students in meaningful service within the Lawrence Community. This event also serves to build fellowship with other Christian students involved in multiple ministries that are a part of the LYN. 

What is the Lawrence Youth Network?

The Lawrence Youth Network is a core group of youth ministers from Grace Ministries, Called to Greatness, Mustard Seed, Christ Community, the Wesleyan Methodist Church, and St. John the Evangelist, to name a few. These youth ministries come together for several events per year (Children’s Holiday Shop, One Big Love, concerts, etc.) to foster community building between the various youth ministries in town.  

What will happen on the day of the event?

Students, both middle school and high school, will pray together at St. John Catholic School to begin the day, and then be sent in mission teams throughout the city to complete multiple projects: cookie “raids” to the firehouses and police stations, helping with yardwork/raking leaves, serving at various community agencies, and visiting the elderly at nursing homes. The day will end with a party held at Mustard Seed Church. 

Date: Saturday, April 9, 2016
Start Time: 8:15 a.m. at St. John Catholic School (1208 Kentucky Street) 
End Time: 1:00 p.m. at Mustard Seed Church (700 Wakarusa Dr.)
