The name “2:14” comes from James 2:14 “What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if someone claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save them?
“The concept with 2:14 is to encourage our members to get involved in structured service projects in our surrounding community, putting their Christian faith into practice by helping out our neighbors,” said Associate Minister, Tim Severance.
Projects in August included:
- Helping re-shingle 2 homes in Kalkaska & Fife Lake
- Landscaping the former Northside Educational Center
- Handyman work prepping a new home for a family
- Pruning flowers in town
Each month will bring with it new and various projects. “I can see a lot of snow shoveling and clearing in the winter months,” said Severance.
The next 2:14 Community Outreach is scheduled for September 25th at 2:14 pm in the church parking lot. There’s no age or gender restrictions – just show up ready to lend a hand!
