Spotlight on Ministry Nov 2015

Spotlight on Ministry, Helping Hands Ministry.

My brothers are we called to serve others? Are we called to be humble?

I say to you yes! We are called to serve others and be humble.

Jesus tells us in Mark 10:43 “Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, 44 and whoever wants to be first must be slave of all. 45 For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”

Today I asked Brad Hirst to share about helping hands ministry at RBC:

Brad said:
“It’s such a cool thing to be used by God in any capacity.. I really have to say it’s God’s ministry to His own kids. I happened to have been given the opportunity by Phil Hannah- who began Helping Hands at RBC in 2006. As Phil told me- It is an amazing opportunity to both serve God and get to know a lot of people within the body fo Christ at RBC. Helping hands has served mostly those who are elderly, ill, or just in need in the church and occasionally those outside the church. The transition from Phil running it to me has been a little challenging because I am still getting to know everyone. I would really love to hear from anyone who wants to share this blessing….and it REALLY is a blessing!”

I asked Brad to share a story of how he has been blessed by this ministry:

“Recently I finished a small job for a dear lady at RBC and she was so touched by this simple truth that .. She is a ‘daughter of the King’. And that serving her allowed me to serve Jesus. That is really the heart of Helping Hands.”

Men’s Ministry leader Steve Norris, said that he conducted a poll, and 75 out of 75 men he talked to said they would help in some capacity where needed. So here is an opportunity to take a few hours to bless someone that really needs some help. You don’t have to be formally skilled, in fact some people just need simple help around the house.

Helping Hands Ministry can use your help.
