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.
If you're interested in volunteering with these ministries, please contact Alana Tyler at email@example.com or call 799-9062 ext. 544.
A Foster Care Resource Closet is being put together on the second floor of Palmer to serve those with foster children. Items being collected include clothing, shoes, equipment, and toys. A detailed list of accepted donations can be found here. Volunteers are needed:
Donations can be dropped off in the marked box located in the security office in the Palmer Building.
Volunteers are needed to serve during the next cycle of the Good News Club beginning in February. The Good News Club is an opportunity to share the "Good News" in an after-school program at a local Columbia elementary school alongside trained teachers. The Good New Club presents an exciting Bible lesson each week along with songs, Scripture memory, a missions story and review games or other activities focused on the lesson’s theme.
If you are interested in getting involved with any of these opportunities, please contact Alana Tyler at firstname.lastname@example.org or 799-9062, Ext. 544.
