Put Your Faith In Action this Thanksgiving!
Our next Faith In Action Day is coming on Saturday Nov. 23rd. We will mobilize a small army to head out into our community to serve in real, practical, & tangible ways. This is the model Jesus gave us – meet people’s physical needs & then the door is thrown wide open to begin meeting their spiritual needs. What a great way to demonstrate what Jesus is ALL about – by GOING, DOING, & BEING what Jesus has commanded us to.
Mark your calendars & join us for a morning of serving – doing Christmas decorating & baking at a Children’s home, doing some work around the house of a single mom, putting together & delivering Turkeys & meals for struggling families, & we will be doing some sprucing up & Christmas Decorating inside & outside our church, as well as, building a swing set on one of our playgrounds.
In, addition to YOU joining us for Faith in Action – I hope that you will invite your friends, neighbors, & co-workers to come join you. Get them involved in helping others & making a difference in our community. A church doing this kind of thing does not compute for most people & blows them away. Who knows? Maybe this is the kind of thing that will resonate with those you know who are disconnected from God & His church. Maybe this will “change the way THEY think about church” & help them get connected. Give it a try!
I hope you are already signed up for a Faith in Action location. If not, you can sign up for a location this Sunday right outside the cafe.
Below is a list of our Faith in Action locations, as well as, a link you can click for a “project info sheet” for each location. These sheets explain the work being done, what you can bring, directions of where to go, etc. Please be sure to get the info for your location. (***If you have already signed up & have not heard from a Project Coordinator – we may have a bad email address for you. Please email them a.s.a.p.

We ask that you arrive at your location no later than 8:45AM (you won’t hurt our feelings if you’re early). At 8:45AM each location will have a group meeting & prayer time before starting to work.
