Serve Opportunities


One of our primary goals at Canaan is connecting people to what matters most. Connecting to purpose is our focus to serve God through church and community outreach.


STL United SERVE DAY — May 4, 2019

STL United is on Saturday, May 4 — a day of service for St. Louis churches, people from the county serving along people from the city, church plants serving alongside existing churches. Let's be a church united in a culture divided.

How do I get involved?

It's simple. Register by texting SERVE to 55222 OR sign up at Sign up individually, as a family, or small group. There is no cost and we will wrap up the morning with a celebration lunch at 12:30pm in a reserved pavillion at Tower Grove park. View a list of serve projects here. Sign up by April 29.



Thank you for your generosity & serving in this year's Egg Drop! Over 30,000 egg donations, countless hours of taping, organizing materials, and one truly amazing daay with our community. Praise God & pray for continued connections!

We have many ways you can get involved serving at Canaan on Sundays. Some opportunities require little to no training. Others may require a couple of training sessions but we’ve got you covered! Sign-up on Sundays or email and let us know where you would like to serve.



BBQ at Oasis International

Thank you!!!
