One can give without loving, but one cannot love without giving.
– Amy Carmichael
At King of Kings, we love others well. What does that look like? We believe that when we give freely of our time, talents, resources, and love that God so feel gave to us, we transform the world one person at a time. That’s why we’re starting something new called All In. Three weeks focused on what it means to love, serve and give generously.
Our prayer is that All In leads others outside our doors, within our city, nation, and globe to a transformed life through the value of generosity. We pray that the love of Jesus would spur on our love toward others to generously support All In and the projects we are hoping to complete.
The greatest gift of sacrifice isn’t money — it’s time. We want to be people who venture out in the world with equal measures of boldness and kindness, who look beyond ourselves to join Jesus on his mission.
He wants us to use our hands and feet to change the world. We have all been given particular gifts and when we extend hands of mercy and kindness, we draw people to ourselves and, ultimately, to God. Your gifts of time and resources to All In and City Serve will help us to serve those who need our mercy and kindness most and to transform lives in a meaningful way.
September 18-24, King of Kings will participate in City Serve. City Serve is about ONE church working together for the good of ONE city as thousands of volunteers unleash over 10,000 hours of unprecedented compassion. City
Serve isn’t an event, but a movement of people who declare in word and action, “We love OUR city,” and are committed to seeing it flourish. King of Kings is partnering with local schools, city parks, food banks, children’s hospitals, children’s homes, homes for seniors, homeless centers, first responders, juvenile centers, and more during this week of radical love through service.
Be sure to visit our City Serve page for a full list of projects around Omaha, as well as ways to serve from your home. Together, we can be All In by giving our time, talent, and resources as we serve others and make a difference.
Register to serve today. It’s free and includes a t-shirt!
We’re encouraging every person — kids, students, and adults to give towards All In. If every person gives at least $20.22 on top of their tithe, we’ll be able to complete thirteen projects that will provide hope to many in our community and around the world. Best of all, every dollar that comes in will go right back to one of our All In partners.

Ways You Can Give
We believe that Jesus’ love compels us to generosity, and your generosity during All In will enable King of Kings to complete projects with partners in our city and around the world. This year’s All In partners include Brandt House, Project Intentional, Disney Elementary, Omaha Street School, and more. Lives will be transformed as we support missions in Guatemala through our partnership with Children’s HopeChest, as well as Ukrainian refugees relocating to Nebraska through Orphan Grain Train.
