Think about all the things we do as a church like: Family Promise, Ecumenical Food Kitchen, CDAIDE, Mission projects, Deacon’s projects, knitting prayer shawls, volunteering with Children and Youth programs, making our church a friendly and welcoming environment, providing worship music, providing cookies for funeral receptions, serving on committees, and donating food for the Food Bank. These are all things you do that are the hands and feet of Jesus.
As the chair of Community Outreach, my goal this year is to encourage everyone to find a way that they can serve--whether that be big or small. No one should feel that they have to do it all. If we each help in a small way, His light and love will shine through.
Remember the song we sing, “Is it I, Lord, I will go, Lord, if You lead me. I have heard You calling in the night.” (Here I Am, Lord by Daniel Schutte)
Maybe He is calling you to bring some food this month for the Food Bank, because hunger doesn’t take a vacation. You will never know where the food goes or who it might help, but He knows.
I feel so blessed to be a part of this church and community of believers.
In His Name,
Our staff is voluntold each week and with grace they share their thoughts.
