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:
But 80% utilize talents outside of the church, such as:
With Love INC, those skills translate into meeting needs like:
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.
Have the desire to help, but not the time? Donate to your church and specify “for Love Inc Referrals” or send a contribution to Love INC Angelina county to keep the connection between people with needs and Christians who care.
