God’s people are challenged through the Scriptures to care – for Jesus’ sake – about the communities in which they live. Old Testament believers who found themselves in exile were told, “…seek the welfare of the city where I have sent you…” (Jeremiah 29:7). Jesus said, “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden.” (Matthew 5:14).
The following ministry opportunities are ways we might increasingly care for the welfare of our city.
William S. Hall is South Carolina's psychiatric institute for children and adolescents. Volunteers are needed to run a weekly Sunday afternoon Bible study for these children and adolescents, working with their onsite chaplain.
Our sister church is beginning an after-school tutoring program for high school students, specifically the Karen refugees from Burma who have settled in the neighborhood around the church. Volunteers are needed to tutor students in English and math, once a week, preferably Thursday, in the afternoon.
If you are interested in getting involved with any of these opportunities, please contact Alana Tyler at firstname.lastname@example.org.
