John 13:34-35 "I am giving you a new commandment to love one another. Just as I have loved you, you also should love one another. This is how everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another."
Also the Apostle Paul instructs us in his first letter to Timothy in chapter 15 to take care of the widows among us who don’t have anyone to help them.
Now many of us do kind gestures when we can. And that is good, but is this how Christ loves us? Isn’t His love more continuous and more of a relationship. Aren’t we supposed to be doing the same thing?
If we don’t consistently show love to the widows, the single mom’s and the disabled who are among us in our congregation, how are those around us in our community going to see our obedience and love for Christ?
The New Commandment Men’s Ministry will take groups of 3 to 5 men and ask them to adopt a widow, a single mom or a disabled person who has no one else to help them take care of things around the house. The men will spend three hours on the third Saturday morning each month assisting their “adoptee” in doing projects around their property. Things like fall clean up, cleaning out gutters, small repairs around the house, simple car maintenance, etc. Whatever we can do to show them that they are loved by helping them and praying with them.
If you would like to join us in this ministry please press the “Launch Form” button to provide us your contact information and the Background Check link so we can assure those receiving care that they are safe with the men who are helping them.
