Hearts In Hands
Because we believe what is written in The Bible of God’s love revealed through His Son, Jesus Christ (John 3:16), we respond in loving obedience to His command to love one another (John 15:12-14)(John 13:34-35) by providing food for the hungry, drink for the thirsty, clothing for the needy, and caring for the sick and unloved (Matthew 25:35-36). In so doing we will strive to share God’s grace, show God’s love, teach God’s mercy and truth, and serve God’s people (James 1:22)(James 2:15-17).
Share God’s grace by providing for an acute or immediate physical need – particularly to those without family resources – through nourishment, clothing, housekeeping, yard work, minor home repair/construction, assistance in reading or language, etc.
Show God’s love by building relationships with the hurting, lonely or unloved – particularly patients on hospice, their families, or anyone in dire or extreme circumstances. We are created for community, and we need each other.
Teach God’s mercy and truth to those He invites to hear. We are saved by grace alone, through faith alone, in Christ alone.
Serve God’s people following Christ’s perfect example – in radical sacrifice, compassion, urgency, generosity and surrender.
