It Takes The Church

It has been great seeing so many of you volunteering for our Habitat build. We’ve had about 20 people out on every Friday and Saturday hammering away and the house is going up on schedule. I know many of the Life Groups and even some ministry teams have encouraged their members to participate together. Serving together, especially on a ministry outside of your normal comfort zone really helps build community in a group. Participating is also a way of helping to bring about change. Habitat is a ministry that was formed to help those, who could not afford housing a way to do so, without government help.
To really change this world, the church is going to have to be involved in their community and do more things like Habitat to help solve problems. There is an incredible amount of resources and talent available if this huge mass of believers in the U.S. would use their gifts to make a difference. Experience shows us that government can’t provide the answers. We need to look at the real issues and problems around us and then do something about it.
