ServErie is a way for me to put my faith into action, learn about different charities and all the different ways God can use me to help others. My most meaningful time was when I was helping to paint someone’s kitchen and the owner was sharing with me about her heart problems and I was able to encourage her with my own similar heart problem and recovery and pray with her. I just know that God put me there for that purpose.
With ServErie we not only help the community but ourselves, is a way that God uses to help us love our neighbors, our city.
ServErie brings multiple churches together to show Christ’s love to the community. I lead a team at a local senior housing complex. The seniors were surprised that multiple churches were working together.
ServErie has brought me lifelong friendships.
My favorite thing about ServErie is seeing how God puts the right people in the right places.
ServErie is more than putting a brush in my hand, it has opened my eyes to the picture God has already painted! Thankful and honored to serve our community every time!
We helped to plant a garden years ago at one of the places. I loved being able to clean up an outdoor space and add some beautiful growing things for women who are in a time of life where there may not be much “beauty”. It was a great opportunity to work alongside others with like minds!
ServErie is a matter of the heart. It showed me that serving comes from the heart on a relational level that that goes beyond just accomplishing a task . It is connecting church with community and people with people and watching what God does in the midst of the opportunity . ServErie is one of the most wonderful ministries I have had the opportunity to lead for our church in all my outreach endeavors and remains close to my heart.
ServErie is amazing. The first time I volunteered I was in a women’s shelter and I remember the children playing and thought about how important it is to have safe places for people to go when they’re in danger. It made me want to do more. The second time, I helped clean a park and we were able to share the love of Christ with some homeless folks. They were appreciative that we were painting their gazebo.
Volunteering for ServErie showed me the serious level of poverty in the inner city where my clients live and has helped me to be more compassionate towards them.
