We had nearly 600 people serving on 21 projects around our city. Be sure and swap stories with your Missional Community and/or Ministry Team this week.
Here are some questions you can ask each other:
What was your favorite part of Mission:SERVE?
How did you experience the gospel throughout the day?
How were you inspired with this project’s efforts in the community?
How will you make serving a regular part of your life?
Take a look at the feedback we are getting from some of the projects where we served and the teams that served.
“The team from Mosaic that came to Tildenville were amazing. Angels were sent to us today! The skill level and diversity was just what we needed. I am overwhelmed. My heart is so happy today because of the work that was done! A shout out and thank you to Mosaic Church for the generosity poured into our community today!” – Jennifer Walker, Tildenville Elementary
West Orange Habitat for Humanity
“We had a team of 15 people. We got to help paint a house in east Winter Garden. We also helped move a shed out of water and build a platform for it. We helped rebuild the shed back on the new platform. Our favorite part of the day was getting to step into someone else’s life and serve them without a reward or payment. Our team felt like we not only got to demonstrate the gospel to the people we were serving but also really felt like we got to connect with others from the church, and experience the gospel through each other on the team. We were impressed with Habitat for Humanity, they are clearly doing some cool things in our local community! They do a great job being relational while accomplishing tasks for the project.” – Team Leader Caleb Carine
CBC Room Renovation Team 2
“We had a team of 11 people. We got to renovate, organize, and decorate two visitation rooms for Community Based Care of Central Florida. We enjoyed meeting people and building community while being the hands and feet of Jesus.” – Team Leaders Marc and Amanda Dittmer
Second Harvest Food Bank
“We had a team of 17 people. We sorted food and organized boxes for families. A few people on our team organized hygiene kits. We were able to accomplish a lot and it was good to see the visible progress that our team made. Our favorite part of the day was how easy Mosaic made it for us — All we had to do was show up and serve. We also liked that kids had the opportunity to serve with their families. Second Harvest processes tons of food! It was an eye opener to realize how many people go hungry in our community.” – Team Leader Kirsten Harrington
“We had a team of 55 people. We overwhelmed (in a good way) Matthew’s Hope with over 50 participants willing to jump in and do whatever we could to help. We enjoyed serving together and meeting new people. Our favorite part of the day was felling like we’re making a difference by serving. We experienced the gospel by remembering that Jesus came as a humble servant for us, and that’s how we need to serve in our local community.” – Team Leader Erik Francoforte
Winter Garden Community Garden
“We had a team of 40 people. We got to pull weeds, plant, build raised garden beds and fill them with dirt. We accomplished more than expected. We enjoyed meeting new people, seeing young kids serve, and seeing a man teach a boy how to use a hammer drill. We were reminded that Jesus came to serve, not to be served. We were impressed that there are charity gardens like Winter Garden Community Garden and how they partner with other organizations like Christian Service Center to meet needs in the local community.” – Team Leaders Rick and Connie Bohner
