How to Help

The beauty of any congregation is that each individual is gifted by God in a special way. Every one has a talent, skill, or time that is worthy of sharing. Some of us are best suited to work within the church, while others can make a more meaningful contribution outside of the church. The key, though, is finding the best way to represent Christ’s love through your own church.

They say 20% of the people do 80% of the work, but at Love INC, we see that 20% of the congregation have skills that can be used in the church. For instance:

  • Sunday School Teachers
  • Ushers
  • Pioneer Club Leaders
  • Youth Group Leaders
  • Music Directors
  • Committee Members
  • Deacons
  • Governing Board
  • Grounds & Maintenance
  • Business/Finance
  • Large Group Cooking
  • Project Fundraising

But 80% utilize talents outside of the church, such as:

  • Mentors to Mothers
  • Helping Teach Life Skills
  • Mechanics, Plumbers, Electricians
  • Transportation Assistance
  • Helping Kids With Homework
  • Handyman
  • Cooking Homemade Food
  • Low-Cost, Healthy Shopping
  • Telephoning Shut-Ins
  • Calling A Latch-Key Child
  • Friendship
  • Bringing Cheer to the Elderly

With Love INC, those skills translate into meeting needs like:

  • Hunger
  • Homelessness
  • Child Neglect
  • Unemployment
  • Substance Abuse
  • Transportation
  • Loneliness
  • Illiteracy
  • Running A Household
  • Proper Medical Care

All we need is your time.
•    In 5 minutes – you can make a latch-key child feel safe with a friendly voice to check in with after school.
•    In 30 minutes – you can provide an elderly person with a much needed ride to the doctor’s office, and some friendly conversation on the way.
•    In 1 hour – you can teach a mother how to cook a well-balanced meal on a budget.
•    In 1 evening, you can change a life from one of desperation to one of inspiration by teaching low-income couples how to find a job and manage their money.
