Why is serving others a high priority at Church Venture?
To follow Christ is to do what Jesus did and mimic who he was while he was on earth. Therefore we are constantly looking for ways to show others God’s love in practical ways. Bringing back empty garbage cans for a neighbor, holding a door open for a family dragging a stroller and 3 kids, church mission trips, collecting clothes or food, helping the homeless, the list goes on and on. At Church Venture we will put our faith into action…we can’t sit on our thumbs…we gotta serve!
Did you know that in Warren County, children 17 and under comprise more than half of the homeless population? We are committed to real change for the lives of those in need. Through our partnership with Interfaith Hospitality Network of Warren County (IHN) we help to provide hospitality and support for homeless families while they seek to build a better life. What's the end goal? Self sustainability for families in need.
There are opportunities to serve with your family, with a group from your work or your neighborhood, or as a whole church. To learn more about IHN, check out their website. To learn more about how you can plug in, contact Andrea Mullins.
