Tapping Into Your Congregation’s Most Valuable Resource: Loving Others
February 8, 2023
How does your church family respond to each other during difficult times?
- When a young adult’s car leaves them stranded and unsure how to manage repair costs, another member calls their mechanic to ask for a favor
- A college-aged member is looking for an internship opportunity and others make a few phone calls to some colleagues to help him land a position.
- An elderly widow experiences a serious illness and members rally to help her navigate appointments or provide meals.
- A young mother with two preschoolers is losing her home after the sudden death of her husband when another member offers their affordable, above-garage apartment.
Members of your church are able to get through the crises and challenges of life because of the support network you’ve built within your congregation.
What if your Christian faith community could use this same support system to reach out to families facing homelessness in your community?
