Get up! Flee to Egypt with the child and his mother (Matthew 2:13).
In recent years, the refugee crisis has shocked the world over. Images like that of three-year-old Kurdish boy Alan Kurdi, his lifeless body washed onto the shore after the refugees’ inflatable rubber boat capsized, horrified us. Too often, however, outrage has yielded little action. A year after his son’s death, Alan’s father told reporters: “Everyone claimed they wanted to do something because of the photo that touched them so much. But what is happening now? People are still dying and nobody is doing anything about it.”
Jesus said that He came not to be served, but to serve. We want to follow His example and be servants, whether it’s within our church, our community, or across the globe. Serving gives us the opportunity to use our gifts to benefit the people around us, and we grow in the process.
If you’re ready to serve, we’re ready to help you find a place to get started!
