What a Difference Can a Day Make?
We think a day can make a world of difference! That’s the idea behind @HOPE#weServe Day.
What would happen if all of HOPE’s volunteer resources were combined to serve in our communities in one day? What would happen if hundreds(!) go out into our communities and show the love of Jesus in real and tangible ways? We want to find out!
This is an amazing opportunity to bless and be blessed. We encourage every small group, ministry, and/or family to choose a project of their own and be the hands and feet of Jesus on @HOPE#weServe Day, Saturday, June 17, 2017.
How do I plan a @HOPE#weServe Day project?
Get creative! Assess people and their needs in your neighborhood and around your community. Perhaps there is a single mother or elderly person that could be assisted by painting their house, cutting grass, or cleaning up the yard. Reach out to people like Firefighters, police officers, school resource officers, nursing home residents, assisted living homes, and local business owners to find a way to serve on @HOPE#weServe Day! Here is a brief list of ideas.
- Leave flowers on a doorstep or send a card of encouragement to someone.
- Rake leaves for someone on your street.
- Buy donuts/bagels for your co-workers.
- Visit a nursing home.
- Roll out an elderly neighbor’s trash bins on trash day. And bring them back the next day!
- Make someone a meal.
- Bake cookies for a neighbor or friend.
Or maybe contact one of these local service organizations –
- HOPE’s Food Pantry
- Urban Mission Fellowship
- The Neighborhood Center
- Habitat for Humanity
- H.O.C. stands for the Interfaith Homeless Outreach Council
- South Jersey Food Bank
Should we communicate to HOPE which @HOPE#weServe Day project our group/family/friends did?
Yes. Absolutely! We would like to know how your group/family/friends served. After @HOPE#weServe Day on Saturday, June 17, 2017 send us an email and we’ll put together a report on all the good HOPE accomplished together in one day. Email your name, # of participants, what/where you served (and send any pictures) to Pastor Rick Court.Filed Under: Missions, Missions Feature
