Mission Service Activity of the Month

January 2020: Shower a special assistance organization with post-holiday care!

There’s not a more joyous celebration than a shower; whether a wedding, baby, or a card shower for the homebound. Add a little CHRIST into your mid-winter group meeting by including an ingathering (showering) of items for a special assistance organization in your area.

Contact an organization that provides resources and assistance to those in a special ministry area. Ask what needs were not met during the holiday season and then help them provide those needs.

Types of organizations you could contact:

  • Homeless shelter
  • Pro-life pregnancy center
  • Substance abuse assistance center
  • Domestic abuse assistance center
  • Prison ministry
  • Children’s home

Gospel focus:

Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins. Show hospitality to one another without grumbling. As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace: whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies — in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ (1 Peter 4:8-11a).

Prayer as you plan and prepare:

Dear God, Almighty Father, we just finished the grateful and giving seasons, but there is still so much need in our community. Guide us to be Your hands and feet as we strive to continue, in this new year, to bring Your Good News to those in need. Focus our attention on the blessings You have bestowed so generously upon us. Help us share those blessings with those who are in need. Let each recipient of our care see the love of Jesus in our actions. Amen.
