Put Your Faith Into Action this Thanksgiving!

EPC - Faith In Action - Give the Bird - logoOur next Faith In Action Day is coming up this Saturday Nov. 21st. 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.

Make plane to join us for  a morning of serving – doing Christmas decorating & baking at a Children’s home, doing Christmas decorating inside & outside our church, & putting together and delivering complete Thanksgiving meals for 180 struggling families, single moms, etc in our area with our #GiveCobb&PauldingTheBird.

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 project. If not, please view the “project info sheets” below and contact the project coordinator right away & let them know you will be helping so they can plan accordingly. 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.  Each project leaders email is listed on the info sheets below…)

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.
