“What good is it if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him?” (James 2:14)
”For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, a stranger and you welcomed me, naked and you clothed me, ill and you cared for me, in prison and you visited me……. Whatever you did for one of these least brothers of mine, you did for me.” (Matthew 25: 35-41).
There is a close relationship between faith and actions (service). The goal of service projects is to enable young people to experience being “Christ-like”. Jesus served those in need not to feel good about Himself but to make a connection with each person especially those with burdens. It is in this way that we understand that all of us are “one” in the “body of Christ”.
We try and provide a variety of service opportunities throughout the year and during the summer in which our youth can be the hands and feet of Christ and experience Him and His love in a profound way.
