As I mentioned last week, our church has taken on a monumental task of giving back to the community. I mentioned Feeding the 5000 in a previous post if you want to take a quick look-see. In order to pull off this task, 12Stone Church needed a LOT of volunteers. When I had looked over the list of needs for volunteers in November, I was surprised at how quickly many of the slots had already filled. I quickly signed up myself and my daughter to attend the “Stuffing Night.”
It was our opportunity to stuff envelopes that would be given to each family on the days they hand out the Christmas meal and weeks worth of groceries. This was part of the stack we were working on that night.
There were stacks and stacks of all these items when we got there, but we were able to fill all 5000+ envelopes in an hour and a half!! That is what happens when you get a group of volunteers who give their time to help others.
