"Feed the hungry and help those in trouble. Then your light will shine out from the darkness, and the darkness around you will be as bright as noon." Isaiah 58:10
We Serve Our Local Community Generously
We want to be the hands, feet and heart of Jesus for our community, in ways that are simple yet creative, big and small! We are passionate about finding ways to be a blessing to our local school community. We send volunteers into the ELG schools weekly to help in classrooms, cafeterias and the playground. We also find other ways to bless students and staff throughout the year!
Spring Day of Serving 2023
At one of our Sunday Gatherings each Spring, we serve our ELG School community in a variety of ways. Our April 2023 Day of Service included several large projects for the ELG Schools: cleaning out flower beds, picking up gravel, washing the school vans, cleaning the press box, and deep cleaning the weight room. We also prayed over several people in our community who are walking through various struggles and wrote cards to graduating seniors.
In August we invite middle schoolers to spend two days creating cool projects themed after the creation account in Genesis 1. We have a great time working with wood, fabric, cardboard and more! We are inspired as we hear about how God created the world and how much He loves His creation.
We seek to be a blessing to our public school community in many different ways, like providing staff lunch, exam goody bags, and gifts at Christmas.
