What’s holding you back? Go Serve!

RL-24-7-365_FBheaderBack in October when we were letting our love overflow to our neighbors (Risk Love), we kept encouraging you to make this a lifestyle that continues 24 hours a day, 7 days a week and 365 days a year. That’s why you see us referencing “24-7-365” in other stories and comments now. And this is all still very much our desire at LifePoint Church. We want to be a church family full of Christ followers that live lifestyles of loving their neighbors.

Don’t be overdependent on the church.

You may recall a previous post on this blog that said “don’t limit yourself to the ministries of LifePoint Church.” Let me emphasize that again. Don’t be overdependent on the church. We can help you up to a point. But after that, its up to you to get out there and serve. Probably the best things LifePoint can do for you are 1) inspire and teach you from God’s Word about serving, 2) give you some training and orientation if you need it and 3) point you towards opportunities that we think are good places to serve. In other words, don’t let LifePoint be a bottleneck! Get what you need from us and then go serve! When we step out in obedience to Gods’ Word, He works through us in powerful ways!

So if you’re ready to go and all you need is someone to point you in the right direction, take a look at our Local Outreach Partners (click here). And here is a great example of a serving opportunity with one of our partners in Carroll County: The Neighbors in Need program can use your help right now.
