For the past couple weeks I had the opportunity to volunteer at an Intergenerational Community Center of Lucille W. Gorham, in the south part of Greenville. I always had the passion for helping others, especially kids but my schedule seemed to always arise conflicts. However, I found time throughout my busy class and work schedule to volunteer and pursue my passion. Out of luck, I believe I picked the most welcoming place off the possible sites to volunteer. With high expectations of children 's after school care and safety, walking through the foot of the door, this center exceeded just that.
Many people go on Mission trips to help other communities that are in need, but some go for the many friendships and experiences that last a lifetime. I went on Mission Trip 2015 to Eagle Butte, South Dakota for both reasons. I had always remember day three of Mission Trip 2015 because I helped the Cheyenne River community, made friends with people from around the state, and renewed old friendships with people from my own school. It was barely eight o’clock in the morning when we shuffled into the city hall building, eyes still filled with sleep. We were there to discover what our work project was for the day.
I felt and still feel that getting confirmed takes dedication, time, and in my church it takes intellect and the ability to absorb information about your religions and other religions every week. In seventh grade I was asked if I would like to participate in confirmation class for the opportunity to get confirmed. The class was every Tuesday for two hours, it was a pretty big commitment to take considering I had sports and homework
He knows how it feels to want to please God, his Family, better yet himself but seems to come up short every time. Because of those experiences he encountered, he can stand before his audience and say with conviction "that in your mess its a message". He uses elements of his personal journey such as failure, embarrassment, and loneliness
The friendly competition that the event creates is what allows us to be able to donate thousands of canned goods to our local food pantry on an annual basis. Our activities incite fun competition and a sense of accomplishment for our members and students affiliated with us. This provides for us a very comfortable environment in which students can be themselves and do what they love. Our Student Council, aside from offering our own physical service to our school and community, also helps other organizations with their events. We are the go-to group in the building.
The volunteers are impacted by the different people they meet every day in the community. Knowing that they’re helping make a difference in the community is what motivates most of the volunteers in POTS. Many of them see the people as a part of their family. Taina Rodriguez has worked as the coordinator of food programs at POTS for the last six years, and she has formed friendships with many of the people in the community that go to POTS looking for help. “We see these people everyday.
I began to feel pretty low, until I realized that our Lord Jesus was too judged and labeled and even humiliated for everyone to see. Everybody’s judgment only made me love Christ more. It made me feel a true connection with Him and what He went through to save me and give me eternal life. Every and any rude comment my religion and my love for Jesus only strengthens my faith even more. Jesus ignited a fire within me that I didn’t even know existed.
Long ago, there was a man that spoke of salvation, the salvation of every person, including people that had no hope. People whose condemnation was undoubtedly certain had a new chance to start a new life that could relieve them of their wrongdoings. This man gave these people hope, faith, confidence, and desire to peruse a life they never had thought could be possible. Salvation is every human’s choice big and small, if you do not believe or follow the way you shall be condemned to the everlasting fire. “Jude” is a very short but captivating book in the New Testament.
However, when Moses chose to give this up for God, giving Him his fear, doubt, and emotional injuries, God helps to heal his wounds and hurts by sending him back to the very people who had tried to reject him and kill him, raising him up as a strong leader who performed many powerful works and who was able to confront pharaohs and lead slaves. God uses Moses’s formerly greatest weaknesses to manifest himself as powerful and
Indeed, I did had the most serious problem of all: eternal separation from God. But I didn’t knew this until God’s Word was explained to me through those first weeks I started to visit this church. I remember counting up the days after my conversion, because I started to see the world through Him. God kept revealing His Word into my life and strengthening me through my college years, my new work and my new responsibilities as a later youth
