The Way 2 Serve is connected with different churches and denominations. We believe that while each of us has our own unique abilities and gifts, we are made to live in community together. This past March, nearly 500 people came together as the body of Christ to serve for My Jerusalem in Opelika and Auburn. Followers of Christ from different cultures, races, and backgrounds united to serve together in our community. The beauty of it all is that the banner under which we serve together is that of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior.
Check out this video where Antione Harvis shares about serving to repair and restore. Antione is the Fatherhood Coordinator for Dad’s League. Antione believes that all believers should connect with those we serve and help and disciple them. He also shares the importance of serving together to build our community!
When the body of Christ served together at the most recent My Jerusalem, 28 homes were repaired. We give God all the glory for the work He has done through His children in rebuilding the walls of our city. Now we turn our attention to restoring the people who live in those newly repaired homes; following up with those we served at My Jerusalem is so important. It is our prayer that those we have served might come to know and trust Jesus as their Lord and Savior or that their relationship with Him will be strengthened. Because there were 28 homes served, there are 28 people/families (not to mention all of those we met at the block party) with whom we now have the opportunity to build a long-term relationship . By we we don’t mean The Way 2 Serve, but we, brothers and sisters in Christ. The opportunity for lifelong, gospel-filled relationships is here. They now need to be fostered and grown. You are needed in the community. In fact, the only way this can happen is if you join in building relationships!
It’s amazing what God does through us when we look to Christ as the source of all we are and do. God’s desire is not for us to come together only once or twice a year to serve and then go on about our lives. He desires obedience better than burnt offerings or sacrifices (1 Samuel 15:22). Obedience is what is needed to build long-term relationships in our community for the sake of the gospel. We are all called to make disciples (Matthew 28:19). We would like to help you by providing you with a few “tools” and opportunities to serve in this way. Get in touch with us today to find out how. Let’s serve together!
