Ministry Weekend

This week, the students at Christ The Savior are going to be involved in two separate ministries this weekend.

On Saturday night, we will be going to the Women's Shelter and setting up a recreation night for the women and children that live at the shelter. It really is about the beginning of building relationships. We are down there 1x a month. I am not sure how much we can do with it being once a month, but it is a beginning. We go there and set up a movie and board games and have snacks and we just hang out with them for two hours and let them know that they are not forgotten.

On Sunday, we are headed down to the "garage" by the over passes and serve a meal to the homeless population. We partner with an organization called Meet Me Under The Bridge. This will be our fourth time down there and we also go there once a month. We prepare and cook a meal and take it down there and serve. Last month, we served over 130 individuals.

We do not take a large number of students down there but we are beginning to open up to the community around us and serve and show that serving is a very important aspect of who we are. I am looking forward to the partnerships and working with the students to step out of our comfort zone and realize that there are people around us hurting and we can help.

Serving: Men's Shelter

Today, I am picking up Isaiah and Jacob and we will be going down to the Men's Shelter and we will be helping out in the kitchen.

Our student ministry is "assigned" to help out once a month down there.

Wheeler has a history of over 100 years helping out Indianapolis. The link will give you their history page/timeline.

Here is a video about their ministry:

One of the things that I strive for is to try to make a difference. I think that one of the greatest and easiest way to do this is to find organizations in your community doing work and partner with them. I also love to invite people along to join the process.
