Local Church Changes Church Services Into Community Service
For the past 10 years, Pastor Mac Hammond’s church, Living Word Christian Center, has transformed 3 of its summer church services into community service nights. The mission of these events is to bless their community with random acts of kindness.
This year on June 6, July 11, and August 8, hundreds of church members will blanket Brooklyn Park and the surrounding areas with practical acts of kindness, such as free car washes, yard care for senior citizens, cleanup of local parks, and ice cold water giveaways. Operation Outreach volunteers can be easily recognized by the community due to the brightly colored t-shirts everyone wears.
Pastor Phil Winn, Living Word’s outreach pastor, stated, “We love stepping outside the four walls of the church building to serve.”
Church members meet at the church at 6:30 p.m., determine which team they’d like to join, and then head out into the community. The wide variety of projects ensures that everyone will have a chance to do something they’d like, including youth and kids of all ages. All groups gather back at the church for refreshments and fellowship after their projects are done.
