CCC Serving Spree: Be the Light of the World

“You are the light of the world…let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” 
From Matthew 5

Followers of Jesus are to glorify God through gracious deeds done in His name.
In doing so, we shed light on the reality that the Kingdom of God has come.

What kinds of gracious deeds?
Christ Community Chapel’s Serving Spree provides numerous, easy-to-find ways you can serve the needy through CCC Local Outreach ministry partners.  To view a list of potential Kingdom Assignments, visit: . 
On this website, you can learn more about the missions of our Local Outreach ministries, to see which ones resonate with you.  And, you can identify possible Kingdom Assignments, or generous, gracious deeds for which you might be called to volunteer.

What is my calling?
You may see something on the Kingdom Assignments list that fits with your interests. A big aspect of this is how God has equipped you, perhaps for an assignment of your own design. 
For example, you may have several life skills that could benefit people in need.

Recently, a CCC member gave a mini-seminar to teen moms and their mentors at Blessings of Summit and Portage Counties on how to save money by couponing.  When the moms realized how much they could stretch their shopping dollars by combining coupons and promotional offers, they were truly excited!

How to start?
Start simple, by exploring the Kingdom Assignments on the website.  Try a one-time assignment, to get your feet wet, and to better understand the ministry partner.
If you want to get creative, look at the needs of the different ministry partners listed on the website. If you get an idea, contact Barbara Ammirati of CCC’s Local Outreach Team at:   .
We are rejoicing that over 2,000 people have taken Serving Spree commitment cards.  Our prayer is that together, we can show how God’s gracious Kingdom has arrived for our neighbors in need. Let’s glorify our Father in heaven!
