Today is the day! We are starting a month of service, following the example of Jesus Christ to serve as He served. Today’s theme is to lift another’s burden. How can you do that?
- Give blood
- Help someone unload their grocery cart
- Hold a door open
- Take dinner to an overwhelmed family
- Donate clothes, especially socks, to a homeless shelter
- Volunteer at a soup kitchen
- Call a friend
There are so many ways to serve others! To help you plan other acts of service this month here are several websites with some great ideas.
