“In everything I showed you that by working hard in this manner you must help the weak and remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He Himself said, ‘It is more blessed to give than to receive.’”
Acts 20:35 NASB
And God has appointed in the church, first apostles, second prophets, third teachers, then miracles, then gifts of healings, helps, administrations, various kinds of tongues. 1 Corinthians 12:28 NASB
We will endeavor to give God glory and manifest the gospel by reflecting the love and compassion of Christ by coming together offering gifts, talents, and abilities to those within the church and the community in a time of need.
The helps ministry provides an avenue for the men and women in our body to live out the gospel while using the gifts God has given them. We will respond to individuals who are under-resourced, vulnerable, elderly and/or physically disabled. In addition, provide a stream of resources those under unusual financial, emotional and/or physical duress from Illness or traumatic event or circumstances beyond their abilities.
Provide relief for those in need from a traumatic event such as fires or flood. This could include sifting through or clearing debris with the homeowner or help with emergency preparedness such as providing labor for sandbag placement for coming rains in for possible flooding
The above are only a few examples. The scope is primarily temporary assistance and is not necessarily open-ended.
Depending on the situation work clothes, gloves and protective gear may be required. If special equipment or tools are required you will be notified in advance or it will be provided on site.
