Love 918 is a movement of people who are passionate about making an impact on the world. The movement was started in 2011 by people who wanted to make a difference in the community around them and it is driven by the words of Psalm 9:18, “But the needy will not always be forgotten, nor the hope of the afflicted ever perish.”
Over the years, Love 918 has charged the people of First Church to continually love our community through organized Love 918 events and organic opportunities. Now, Love 918 is on a mission to reach beyond the 918 area code.

A vision for an all-purpose truck has been part of the Love 918 strategy since 2013. The Love 918 truck is a vehicle that can be used to offer a variety of free services to the local community.
Meeting a short term need such as passing out water at a local 5k, passing out popsicles at your neighborhood park, trimming trees, helping neighbors move, delivering donated appliances, etc. If you know a way to serve the people in your space, this truck and the resources of LOVE918 and First Church can help you accomplish it.
Connecting with the people in your community. Connecting with neighbors on your block can be a very difficult and awkward task. However, a relationship starts the second you engage a neighbor at an organized Love 918 event or a “Do-It-Yourself” organic event.
People surrendering their lives to Jesus. Jesus said, “Go and make disciples of all nations and teach them to obey everything I’ve commanded.” Because of these words, we go. There are people in your space who have never given their lives to Jesus and what if God uses you to make that happen?
