The Hands and Feet of Jesus- Aug and Sept

The end of summer is a tough time to plan Service Servants projects because of all the events during this time.  County Fair, the start of school, plus the wrap up of many of our summer activities, kept us busy this month , but we still managed to sneak in a few projects that help us focus on others.

August was mostly small projects, but I'm proud that even with the excitement of the County Fair, we still remembered to do SOMETHING!  Here is our list:

  • Recycled 2 huge bags of Walmart plastic bags.
  • Worked a Food Pantry shift on Friday.
  • Served as Committee of the Month at our church, which includes setting up for service, ushering, washing communion glasses and cleaning up after service.
  • Sponsored Laura Stevens for the Relay for Life Cancer walk in Beresford.
September was also busy, but at least we were able to find some time to serve others.:-)

First- my good friend was having some serious surgery, so I called several neighbors and friends to line up meals for the family the first week following the surgery.  Given the opportunity, people are thrilled to be able to help out a friend, and I was very pleased at the responses :-)

Chicken and rice, crescent rolls, home made pickles, and peach pie

Our local Food Pantry has been very low on supplies, so our church's Hi-League kids, 4th grade and up, put an article in the paper, and set up a collection table to replenish the Food Pantry supplies. 

I love doing community service projects with kids-  they bring so much enthuisiasm and fun to each event!  And my hope is that they will remember these projects and understand how important it is for them to serve others.
