Be part of the crowd that comes out on designated Saturday mornings to go out and participate in service projects throughout the community. This is an excellent opportunity to learn about the needs of your neighbors, meet those needs in a practical way, and really get to know the people usually surrounding you in church on Sundays.
This is what we did with our church yesterday. There were over 1000 volunteers that did 30 different things. It was wonderful . We made blanket for homeless children and delivered them. My husband and oldest son went to Wycliff bible translators and pulled weeds and repainted mobile home slot numbers. Then, we came back to the church to eat. All while in a sea of green tee's.
