Generations Working Together

For years, Christ Body has thrived on volunteers from different generations. Older and younger adults, male or female, Christ Body has been richly blessed by their spirited service to the homeless.

They have brought to life Matthew 25:40- “I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.”

God’s Kingdom is best pushed forward when believers of all ages, gender and ethnicities work together. The Apostle Paul talks about this spirit of mutual cooperation in his letter to the Corinthians. This should be a natural thing for Christians. “Now you are the body of Christ, and each one of you is a part of it.”(1 Corinthians 12:27). 

What Paul envisioned was a beautiful tapestry made up of God’s people working together to enlarge and grow God’s Kingdom-and it’s particularly poignant when believers serve the poor, homeless, widows and orphans.

The takeaway for those who offer their time here at Christ body is this; as we work together serving the homeless, we do so as if we were directly working for God. As we do our work, our differences fade away and we in turn become the Church, bringing glory to God and moving His Kingdom forward. But there is another point too- our guests at Christ Body see God in us, and they are drawn to him by our service.

Many of our daily guests face a desperate life-for some its life and death. Yet, even with these challenges they face, I cannot tell you how many sincere “thank you’s” we receive each day from individuals who appreciate our care for them.

My hope is that each guest who comes to Christ Body will not only see believers from every generation serving God, but they will walk away with their soul stirred. We would love for you to join our inter-generational team at Christ Body. Here’s what we need: first, your prayers. Our work moves forward as we pray for God’s favor and leading. Second, we can always use volunteers each week to serve food, clean and give out clothing. Finally, our work thrives through your financial support and gifts.

Blessed Easter.

Christ’s Body is in need of someone willing to sponsor the meat of one steer per quarter. We are so thankful for the group that provide it in the past, but they are unable to continue.

We are also in need of toothbrushes, little soaps and shampoos if you have any from your recent travels. It never ceases to amaze us how God provides through so many to keep this ministry going!
