This is a simple and effective way to get your Church involved in your community. The idea is to choose three or four projects around your community and choose a Saturday to have members of your Church complete these projects together. This not only lets your community know you are here to serve, but also brings your members closer together by being the hands and feet of Christ in their town and neighborhoods. Jesus calls us to serve the less fortunate in Matthew 25 and says that “whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.” Some ideas are: a blood drive, city park clean up, painting the home of a shut in, handy man work at a local retirement community, collecting food for your local food bank. All simple projects that will make a difference.
