Are you feeling down? Are you discouraged about your progress toward your new goals and resolutions? Pushing and reaching can wear us down. If we let ourselves we can get really introspective. We stay locked up in our pity party.
One way to revive your joy is to reach out and focus on someone else in need. I experienced this last Saturday, as our church cooked and fed over 90 homeless. I received joy from serving, but from also talking and listening to those we served. I left feeling renewed and revived.
The Bible tells us that we were saved to serve. In Ephesians 2:10 it says, “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”
It’s our goal to have one meaningful church outreach each month in 2014. I want to invite you to take part in our February outreach.
On Saturday, February 15th, from 2 to 3 PM, VC will have a special outreach at the Willow Oaks Assisted Living Center. On Valentines weekend we want to show some love to those living in this community.
We will hand out flowers, smiles, and homemade cards from the kids at VC. We will also sing, have devotions, and a time of prayer. To take part, sign up at the Information Table. Ages 3 are welcome. Children under 12 are to be accompanied by their parent or guardian.
