October is Serve Month at Rocky Creek.
The list has been updated again, past events have been removed. After you sign up, you will receive more details about that particular event.
Simon answered, “Master, we’ve worked hard all night and haven’t caught anything. But because you say so, I will let down the nets.” Luke 5:5
The disciples were obedient to Jesus command to put their net out, even though they were experienced fishermen. God blessed them tremendously through their obedience. We also need to be Obedient Servants like the disciples.
These mission opportunities are to help our church family get involved in serving through the month of October, and to help encourage them to continue serving in different ways throughout their lives.
Look over the list of mission opportunities and see where you believe you can best plug in. Some are excellent opportunities for families to serve together, some are better for adults, or for students. The goal of these mission opportunities is not to see how many any one person can participate in, but to encourage as many of our church family to get involved in some way.
