Compassion

God’s answer to a broken world is the local church. CityServe is a collaborative network empowering the local church to offer solutions to brokenness through God’s instructions found in the Bible.
Through training, we have the opportunity to compassionately live out the Gospel of Jesus Christ in our community. Our vision is to see SevenOaks Church fulfill its calling to be a catalyst for a healthier community and the restoration of broken lives.
Currently there are over 230,000 people in Visalia's "reach area". This area is defined by location, proximity in distance, and the number of individuals within that given distance. Currently, 43% of the "reach area" population is "churchless". Meaning that they are either far from God or do not know God. God’s answer to a broken world is the local church to reach every city and every neighborhood. CityServe is a collaborative network empowering the local church to offer solutions to brokenness through God’s template found in the Bible. Through training, we have the opportunity to compassionately live out the Gospel of Jesus Christ in our community. Our vision is to see SevenOaks Church fulfill it's calling to restore hope, life and the health to the community at Seven Oaks Church. We believe in demonstrating what it means to love and be loved by Christ… we call it Compassion.
How do we share compassion:

CityServe: This collaborative initiative positions Visalia to be a prototypical city for community transformation. CityServe’s innovative model links resources from national retailers and the efforts of local congregations across the entire city. It connects the broken and most vulnerable to resources and relationships through local churches. CityServe is a hand up, not a hand out.
Food Distribution: In partnership with the USDA and CityServe Tulare Kings, we will be distributing Food Boxes that offer a variety of mixed produce and dairy products. This is a drive-thru “No-Barrier Distribution”. We will be distributing Food Boxes every Friday from 9 am to 10 am. Quantities are limited to Food Boxes on hand.

I understand by receiving this food box from USDA and CityServe Tulare Kings that I certify under penalty of perjury that I and or my household have experienced disruption of food intake or supply patterns because of lack of money or other resources and that I and or my household is food insecure and is in need of the food provided in this food box. The contents of the food box is for my personal home use, not to be sold, traded.
