Do you agree that service is "love in action"? We serve God by serving others. We share God's love with others by serving them. I'm excited about the This Means Love kit from Group Publishing. This kit makes it super easy for women to plan simple service projects that will make a huge impact. The kit contains 12 project guides providing supply list, brief devotion, complete instructions for each activity, and practical tips, 1 convenient graphics CD that includes reproducible materials for various projects and for promotion, and a copy of the This Means Love Bible Study. The Bible Study includes six sessions on what the Scripture says about loving and serving others, based on the love chapter, 1 Corinthians 13. Each session has three sections: Connecting With Each Other, Connecting With God, and Connecting to Life. Each one ends with Random Acts of Service.
The 12 projects are simple but effective, ranging from helping the homeless and caring for the elderly, to offering cheer & comfort to teens and children in need. Craft-making. Cooking. Sewing. Leading games. Gardening. Gift-wrapping. Collecting. Organizing. Writing. Cleaning. There are so many creative ways to serve people. If you and your friends desire to serve and make a positive difference in your community but don't know where to start, check out this easy-to-use kit. All necessary components are laid out for a small group of women (any ages) to plan and carry out these service projects. Needs are all around us; we've just got to reach out! It's truly a privilege and joy to serve and share Christ's love with others. Have fun! I believe this kit would be a great tool for me to use with my homeschool mom group this coming fall :).
