The theme of Serve this week was Go Do Good, and I am pleased to report You Did Good.
You went and did it again, First Church. You were amazing this week and in all the weeks of preparation before. You went above and beyond all week long with our Serve project. I want you to know how proud I am of First Church.
God had a vision and a purpose that He gave to Dan H about four years ago, to stretch ourselves to become a Serve site. Little did we know then it was a three-year commitment. And now look what you did, you did good, above and beyond good for three years. So, thank you to Dan for listening and following through especially when it seem impossible.
This year 40 youth and leaders from four CRC churches from MI, MN, and WA served our community through four work sites, and we as a church served them to make it all possible. Over a hundred members of our congregation served led by an incredible team of volunteer leaders and our own youth group and all of us under the faithful leadership of Dan H.
You volunteered and helped in the kitchen, made cookies, donated chips and pop, helped in the worship, sound, projector, on the work sites, came to the prayer meetings, were a host family on last Sunday morning, bought or donated tools or vehicles or trailers, did laundry, helped with set up or clean up, stayed up late to be a night watchmen. Some of you took a week of vacation, time off from work, or came before work and after work.
