On the Journey

Pastor Michael

“Amazing.”  “Awesome.”  Incredible.”  I’m having difficulty finding the words to describe the Christ-like hearts of the 193 people who served in our JourneyCares Week!

 

It was a tremendous week of spiritual development and of experiencing meaningful community within our church family, and, of course, we hope we helped our partners accomplish their mission!  Here are the community organizations with whom we served (besides construction projects on individual homes.)

Angels of Assisi

Boys & Girls Club

Child Health Investment Partnership

Family Promise

Feeding America

Habitat for Humanity ReStore

Meals on Wheels

Rescue Mission of Roanoke

Roanoke Valley Greenways

Ronald McDonald House

Virginia Veterans Care Center

 

Collectively, there were 717 hours of community service volunteered by our Journey family last week!  According to independentsector.org, the value of an hour of volunteer service is $24.69.  That means our JourneyCares week of serving our community had a value of $17,702.73!

 

I’m so grateful for the servant hearts of all those who were a part of this outreach initiative!

 

If you served, but you were not able to get your t-shirt, please see a Journey staff member on a Sunday morning.

 

We’ve already begun planning for a JourneyCares weekend in the fall!
