But seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you into exile, and pray to the LORD on its behalf, for in its welfare you will find your welfare.

Jeremiah 29:7

We do not believe that our church is located in the heart of Kentucky by chance. Rather, we understand that Frankfort and the surrounding area of Central Kentucky is our first mission field. Obedience to the Great Commission begins by reaching our neighbors.

To this end, Buck Run launched Serve Frankfort in 2015 to meet needs within our community in order to make relationships and win people to belief in Jesus Christ.  Our morning begins with a time of corporate prayer for our community at 8:30am followed by the dispersement of teams all over the city to serve in a variety of capacities. Unless noted in the description, all projects will be completed by noon.
