This month I would like to share with you some new missional opportunities that are on the horizon. One of the ways that we can effectively change the world around us is by getting involved in people's lives so that they know the love of Jesus from each of us. Because of this, we are going to be embarking on two new ministry opportunities that I hope you will want to get involved with.
First, during the month of August, you will be given a list of items that are needed for each grade level at Bailey Elementary School. I am inviting you to take a list and fill up a backpack with the items listed. On August 26th, we will have a time of prayer over the backpacks and deliver them to the school the next morning. The lists are available now in the church office and will also be at each service.
The second opportunity will be later in the fall. This is called "Make a Difference Day." On a Saturday in October (tentatively October 6th), we will have a day where we will be in the community helping others. There are several ideas already for this day such as a car wash, window washing for businesses, yard clean up, and simple home repairs. Brian Hester is helping to lead this day of projects. If you have any ideas, please see him or me so that we can begin to plan what the day may look like. More information will be available as we get closer to time.
These are some simple ways that we can show the love of Jesus to others. Neither of these will take a whole lot of time, but each could make a big difference in someone's life. I hope you will consider helping in these acts of ministry for our community. It is our goal that all people know who Jesus is not just by what we say but by what we do in his name.
Will you join me and making a difference in Bailey and beyond?
