The 516 Project is an answer to Jesus' call found in Matthew 5:16.
”In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” In response to this call, we have set two collective goals.
- Together we will serve 10,000 hours in our communities.
- Together we will give away $100,000 in support of that service.
There are countless ways that we can demonstrate the love of Christ to our neighbors and communities. From volunteering at a local outreach center to helping an elderly neighbor with yard work, the most important thing is that we serve others with a Christ-like attitude. For many, an unexpected good deed might improve their outlook just for a day or a week. For others, that generosity might end up having an eternal reaction that will change the course of their lives.
We can’t wait to see the work God will do in our community as we serve. Each of us has a gift and a role that can be used to bless our communities. As you take a look at the available volunteer opportunities (first, check out the current projects), pay special attention to chances that take advantage of the strengths that God has given you.
