Update on Associational Ministries
If you and your church are looking for ways to plug into existing ministries in Southeastern Baptist Association, here are a few ways to do that. In our 9-county area, there are many ways to be of help and share the gospel through your compassionate actions.
Louisville Rescue Mission – Go to www.LousivilleRescurMission.org to see the variety of ministries that need your help in providing care and guidance for clients. You can participate in this ministry for homeless people by:
*organizing a drive for cleaning supplies, food, home essentials, and personal toiletries
*leading a chapel service to encourage residents *partnering in prayer for healing and transformation
*preparing a meal for residents *serving at the Thrift ‘n’ Thrive shop
*serving in the Day Shelter which provides vital relief services in a safe environment
*taking a customized group mission tour of the Louisville mission
*teaching a class or mentoring adult students on a variety of topics
Another ministry that relies heavily on volunteers is the Pearl Street Feeding Ministry. This ministry serves a Community Meal each week. Prayer requests are taken along with a brief message before a hot meal is served. Volunteers can help with food prep, serving, and presenting the gospel. Contact Bruce Farnsley for more information.
Choices Life Resource Center has reported that so far in 2017, 629 gospel presentations have been made to clients using the prenatal, mentoring, sonogram, and counseling resources. In the past 12 months staff, and volunteers have welcomed 68 babies into the world! Contact Rose Contra, Executive Director, for specifics of how you can become involved in this valuable ministry.
These ministries continue to exist and expand because of your faithful support through prayer, involvement, and giving!
