Serving Columbia - and Beyond
Maybe we can find some ways to serve our city together. There is already so much good being done in service to our community! We're looking for ways to get involved, things we can do which reflect what God's Word says:
Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world. - James 1:27 ESV
But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere. And a harvest of righteousness is sown in peace by those who make peace. - James 3:17-18 ESV
One cause we have loved rallying around is ESL classes for new arrivals from Syria! We hope and pray this is just the beginning of many such things that God will open up before us, ways to serve people.
As we learn alongside one another, we pray that our impact together will also touch way beyond our own community to other parts of the world.
