"As a Christian adult I understand the undeniable commandment of Jesus to love one another through humility and service. I also understand how difficult it is to plant this in the minds of our children. We tell them about serving, but rarely share in the joy we receive through living our faith; by putting words into action.
Nearly 20 years ago our youth minister realized the need for the adults and youth to “get dirty together”. The entire church got behind these volunteers, funding personal housing expense and materials for their projects as they headed to Appalachia. They traveled 350 miles so there was no turning back, both youth and adults were totally committed; creating an absolutely perfect setting. They worked (were God’s hands and feet) during the day and, in the evening reflected over the events of the day (what a rare opportunity).
His Hands and Feet Ministry provides you with everything you need. You get to choose from an abundant list of needs requiring a variety of skills, along with a venue for gathering in the evening. They can provide consultation during your construction efforts and assist in organizing your faith group evenings. They can also joyfully set back and watch your personal miracle in process. Whatever you choose, your efforts will truly be a miracle to the people served, an answer to their prayers."
