There are so many different faith groups, and different needs depending on each congregation. Some of these groups are large with millions of members, and some are quiet denominations with only a handful of folks that are involved.
Some of the strategies this takes place is through serving, as that naturally seems to set up bridges between us and others. Church groups have long been known for being involved in humanitarian efforts and lending financial aid and volunteers, among other things. It seems that, whatever where we look, there is no end to human need: individuals who are having a hard time, downtrodden, hopeless, and hungry.
When you gather as a group to carry out service, there is a lot that can be done in your own neighborhood and community. However, if you prefer to take your congregation hours away to join a greater effort or offer aid even more from home, we think a coach is the way to go. Not only can riding together create an opportunities to get to know each other better and enhance camaraderie, you can also discuss the impact of the experience that you’ve shared together when you’re on your way home.
Service has a trick, and this is it: so often we do an act planning to help another person– to lighten their suffering, to tend to their wants and needs, to be a listening ear when they feel broken. The surprising thing is that, in the very act, we find that what is broken in us seems to mend, too– our own struggles seem lighter, and our hearts are strengthened with new perspective to go forward in our own lives. That’s the real beauty of it.
Therefore… when your congregation is heading out for a service opportunity and needs a great way to get there, we’re only a call away! We’d love to come along for the ride with our gray line tours Niagara falls!
