Among the good aspects of this nation is the blessing of having the chance to believe and worship as we select, and one of the wonderful byproducts of this is diversity. There are a lot of different faith groups, and different needs according to each congregation. Just some of these groups are enormous with countless members, and some are quiet denominations with only a number of folks that are involved. We love the superb cultural fabric that results as we converge as communities from a selection of viewpoints to participate in life together.
Among the methods this occurs is through serving, as that naturally seems to build bridges between us and others. Church groups have long been known for being involved in humanitarian efforts and lending financial aid and volunteers, among other things. It seems that, whatever where we look, there is no end to human need: individuals who are having a hard time, downtrodden, hopeless, and hungry.
There is a number that can be done in your own area and community when you get together as a group to do service. If you want to take your congregation hours away to participate in a greater effort or offer aid further from home, we think a coach is the way to go. Not only can riding together create an opportunities to get to know each other better and deepen relationships, you can also talk about the impact of the experience that you’ve shared together when you’re on your way home.
Service has a trick, and it is this: so often we do an act intending to help somebody else– to lighten their suffering, to tend to their wants and needs, to be a listening ear when they feel broken. Yet, the surprising thing is that, in the very act, we uncover that what is broken in us seems to heal, too– our own battles seem lighter, and our hearts are reinforced with new perspective to go forward in our own lives. That’s the real beauty of it.
Therefore… when your congregation is heading out for a service opportunity and needs a great way to get there, we’re only a call away! We’d love to come along for the ride!
