Summer is in full swing at Serving You Ministries!
June has passed as quickly as it came this year! And although the summer is flying by, it has been an amazing one so far!
During the month of June, Serving You Ministries provided $8,170 in emergency utility relief. Through our client-choice food pantry, Merchant Market, we helped over 262 families with food and hygiene items this past month.
That brings the grand total of people that received help on their power or water bill, heard the life-changing news of the Gospel, or fed their families through our market to over 600 people! Isn't God good?
So thank you, our faithful volunteers, donors, and friends! None of that would be possible without you!
Our Sunday Serve Day crews this month were from First Baptist Church Trussville and Christ Church United Methodist. We are so thankful of them donating their Sunday afternoons to serve their brothers and sisters in Christ through Merchant Market.
If you are interested in having your Sunday School Class, Life Group, or Youth Group come serve, email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up!
Don't forget about Serving Younited 2019! It is just around the corner and it's not too late to sign up!
As followers of Christ, we have been called to the mission field. Some of us are called to go into areas far from Alabama, but we are all commissioned to share Christ wherever we are... starting right here in Birmingham!
The Good Samaritan walked 10 miles to Jericho, traveling on what scholars believe was a very dangerous route. Many of us live just 10 miles from Birmingham. If we aren't careful, it becomes easy to drive through or even around the city to avoid the needs of our neighbors.
For this one week, let us all do something for those who live in our hometown.
Thank you again for making June such a great month at Serving You! I cannot wait for next month's recap so we can talk about the mission trip to Italy, our summer college interns, and our sweet high school volunteers from the YMCA... plus SERVING YOUNITED WEEK updates!
