Do You Volunteer?
I have been attending the Atlanta First United Methodist Church since last year and have finally made the move to become more involved in the church. The youth program at the church is an area that I can get involved in and just makes sense since I have kids of my own. My son goes to church every Wednesday and just loves it. So I wanted to see what I might be able to do. The youth program lets kids from all over the town come to the church and enjoy great fellowship with kids their own age and also get a chance to learn the word of God.
The youth that meet on Wednesday usually average about 70 and come from all walks of life. I have had the chance to volunteer in many different areas from serving dinner, to helping out in the gym, and last night I had a chance to talk to a few of them outside as they were passing the football around. I was truly touched by a young man that volunteered to do the prayer before the meal. This is a great chance for the youth of this community to get together in a positive environment. I am truly blessed to be able to contribute to this great mission. Do you volunteer?
