Faith In Action Day – What You Need to Know

EPC - Faith In Action - PosterThis Saturday June 27th we’re sending our entire church out into our community to help and serve those in need.  Basic premise – “Don’t just go to church – BE the church!

I cannot wait for this day when we have a bunch of people working at a Children’s Home near red top mountain, doing a mini-home improvement makeover for a Widow in our area, working at a Women’s Shelter in Marietta.

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.

In, addition to YOU joining us for Faith in Action Day – 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!

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 & please contact the project coordinator for the location you would like to serve at RIGHT AWAY – so we know how many people we have to work with & how many projects we can tackle.

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.
