We Love Chattanooga

We love to wear the shirts, put the stickers on our cars, and experience all that this city has to offer.
But what would happen if we showed our love for Chattanooga by the way we treated people? 

Imagine the impact we could have on our city if we Love Chattanooga one person at a time.
That means showing up to serve, meeting people right where they are, giving, inviting someone to dinner, connecting on a personal level.
We want to point people to real help and real hope. We want to point people to Jesus.

That is what #LoveChattanooga means to us.
Connecting. Serving. Giving.

Community Partners

A big part of Love Chattanooga is our community partners. We partner long-term with organizations and ministries in our city who make a difference in our local community, reaching people we don’t know how to or wouldn’t be equipped to like they are. We come alongside them to support and encourage, love and equip, meet tangible needs, serve hands on, and partner financially and relationally.

How We Partner

Meet Tangible Needs

Hands On Service

Financial Giving

The Boards in the entryway are covered in cards that represent specific needs in our community. Each Sunday, there is opportunity to take a card and meet a tangible need. One card at a time, one person at a time, we  can love Chattanooga.
We serve hands on with our partners.  From cleaning and organizing their facilities, preparing hygiene kits, delivering meals to our homeless communities, to running games at field day,  we partner relationally and show up to serve however we are needed.
Every month a percentage of all giving church wide is poured directly back into local non-profits and organizations to support our community.  This allows us to say yes to big and small needs that we are made aware of throughout the year.

#LoveChattanooga Impacts

We love sharing and celebrating the stories of what is made possible through #LoveChattanooga. We do this not only to celebrate all God is doing throughout our city, but to also express our gratitude to every single person that has helped us love those most in need in our community.

August 2022

Hardy Elementary
  • As Hardy kicked off the school year, we invited teachers to send us their amazon wish lists to help cover costs for their classrooms that they would normally cover out of pockets. We donated over $3000 worth of items such as classroom rugs, tons of school supplies for their students, good behavior incentives, lamps, diffusers, the list goes on! 
  • We were able to do two Chick-Fil-A catered breakfasts on Fridays for the entire faculty and staff in the month of August. The Vice Principal shared with us that these are especially loved by the teachers who feel seen and loved after a long week.
 
Metropolitan Ministries
  • We donated over $2300 worth of food items to the MetMin grocery store. This grocery store is open Monday-Thursday for those in need in our community to get a large box of food (valued at $300) once a month. Their grocery store serves all age demographics and house sizes and helps hundreds of families each month. 

Restore 6:34
  • Restore 6:34 is a nonprofit ministry whose purpose is to offer Christ-centered discipleship, shelter, and life-skill training to formerly incarcerated women in the North Georgia region. We helped to purchase some of their most needed items for helping to landscape their property such as a lawn mower, a weed hacker, a wheelbarrow, a hose, etc. We also provided several needed items for the women in the program including feminine hygiene products, household supplies (cleaning supplies, toilet paper, towels, laundry detergent), notebooks for their classes, some food supplies and a laptop and printer for their job placement searches. 

Blue Monarch
  • We provided several needed items for Blue Monarch's program and the women and children they serve including several hundreds of diapers, wipes, a weighted blanket for a child, and new board games for their family farmhouse for the moms and children to use together. 

Adult & Teen Challenge
  • Hundreds of hygiene items and some clothing items were donated to go to the students at ATCM. These are a constant need as a lot of their students come into the program with little to no belongings.
