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.
Let us all do something for those who live in our hometown.
This July, Serving You Ministries is inviting your church to our ministry center for our second annual Serving Younited Week.
This will be a week of serving our community and worshiping together as One Body. The mornings will include working on home improvement sites doing light construction or painting. The afternoons will include prayer walking and Backyard Bible Clubs in surrounding neighborhoods. We will begin the week on Sunday, July 22nd with training and dinner. Then, Thursday, July 26th, we will have a closing celebration dinner at Oak Tree Ministries, one of our partnering ministries. You, your family, or church group are welcome to join us for the entire day or choose between the morning and afternoon times.
Our daily schedule will be the following:
8:30 am Meet at Work Project Sites
12 pm Lunch at SYM
1:30-2:00 pm Prayer Walking
2-4:00 pm Backyard Bible Clubs
5:30 pm Dinner at Oak Tree (Thursday ONLY)
