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 summer, Serving You Ministries is inviting Christ Church to serve along side other area churches at their ministry center for our first 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 evangelism, prayer walking, and Backyard Bible Clubs in surrounding neighborhoods. Each evening we will gather to eat dinner and worship together. You, your family, or church group are welcome to join us for the entire day or choose between the morning and afternoon times. We understand that some of you may not be able to take off work for the week or have young children who could not participate in the full day - you are still welcome to join in for part of the day.
