WANTED: Summer Ministry and Work Teams
Pat and I (Otto) have reached the age when our peers too often converse about supplemental insurance and restaurant early-bird specials. Personally, I am weary of conversations about the not-so-good “good old days!” Waking up to birds singing, sitting on our deck sipping black coffee, and meditating on the Word are enjoyable, but I still have an urge to DO something that lasts for eternity.
If you share my desire to add blessing to those enduring a bleak existence, there is a full-throttle ministry that will satisfy your urge! Since its inception, Next Generation Ministries (NGM), based in North Philadelphia, has thrived on volunteer support. Her parent churches, historic Highway Tabernacle and Resurrection Life Church, have received thousands of hours of donated manpower. The need continues! Will you help NGM fulfill the mission to Philadelphia?
This summer, Next Generation Ministries invites teams and individuals to help with several possible ministry or work projects, including our bi-weekly vacation bible school for the children in North Philadelphia, a block party, community service, and/or physical work on our facilities.
NGM project leaders can adapt to your schedule, and materials will be on site when you arrive. We can use men, women, and responsible teens. If you are like me, you will find a deep satisfaction in your service in North Philadelphia. If you are willing to “rough it,” you may cut costs by staying in the church building overnight. Coffee is always perking, cold drinks are in the refrigerator, donuts are delivered every morning, and lunchtime fellowship makes the days fly by. Volunteer for a day, a week, or longer.
Your help is a huge costs saving for NGM. The rewards are eternal, and you will impact the destinies of many! To schedule individual, family, or church team volunteering, contact Candace Wegner at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll see you this summer!
