If you pour yourself out for the hungry and satisfy the desire of the afflicted, then shall your light rise in the darkness and your gloom be as the noonday.

-Isaiah 58:10



"I was on a bus. Big kids put food in the back of the bus from people who brought cans and boxes for people who don't have food. Everyone wore masks and mommy and baby brother sat in the front and waved to thank people for feeding the hungry people." That's how our eight year old described his first mission service project this week. He understood why we gathered in masks and gloves to pack the church bus full of food.

This Sunday, we broke from our normal routine. Typically, we get up as a family and watch the worship service together and then share a meal. This week, we got up and prepared for the tithe-by. Jessica manned the driver's seat of the bus with Marshall, while Gabriel supervised the loading of the back. Vincent and the dozen youth and parents gathered the food from JCPC folks dropping it off and separated it by category before loading it in the bus. Over 20 boxes were filled and 50 cars stopped by with food and donations.

The most important thing we do as a family is join our faith family to worship with and serve others. The most important thing we do as a faith family after worshipping together, where we praise God, read God's word, and learn how to serve, is to do that work together. It is my greatest joy to bring the boys to JCPC and teach them how to spend their time and gifts and resources to help God's people in need. And I really love when they have learned how and why we do it. We will do this again on Father's Day Sunday. If you're a father or want to honor yours, there's no better way than to show your family and others your commitment to helping those in need. I hope we will see you there!


Prayer for Today

Lord, make me your hard working servant, eager to help those in need. Amen.
