"These were his instructions to them: "The harvest is great, but the workers are few. So pray to the Lord who is in charge of the harvest; ask him to send more workers into his fields." Luke 10:2
Dick and Connie Miller know a thing or two about the Second Saturday ministry. As members of Fox River Christian Church in Wisconsin, they've seen firsthand how important and effective a hands-on volunteer ministry is to the growth of a church and it's people. When they began attending GCC, they were eager to bring the Second Saturday experience to the community of Kendallville.
Taking part in Second Saturday may mean pumping gas, walking dogs, assembling shelves at the library, doing yard work for the elderly, or a myriad of other simple tasks. This month we will be sending the bulk of our volunteers to rake leaves as well as serve a local food bank. While the actual work varies from month to month, the mission is the same. As Dick puts it:"volunteers meet every second Saturday of a month and go out into the community to help, comfort, and lift up. We believe this helps our attendees (particularly new ones) connect with the church and lift up Grace Christian to our community."
Don't miss the great opportunity to fellowship and "get your feet wet" in service ministry. Be at the Mitchell St. campus by 9:00 am Saturday, November 9th (and bring a rake if possible). If you cannot attend, follow the Lord's instruction from Luke 10:2 and pray that He send more workers into his fields.
