I want to leave an encouragement for those of you who may feel like you do not belong in your local church. Some who feel like the least in the body of the church, could end up giving the most balance. I direct you to God's word,"From whom the whole body, joined and held together by every supporting ligament, grows and builds itself up in love, as each part does it's work." Ephesians 4:16 N.I.V. Whatever you are doing for Christ and His glory do it as unto the Lord and not as unto men. God bless

I currently serve as the ministry leader at my church for our food pantry. We serve about 400 people a month and distribute over 95,000lbs of food a year to hungry families in our community. This ministry has been a huge blessing not just to the families we help but our volunteers too.

I give back in a little different way. I volunteer at the Roanoke Rescue Mission. The homeless people come there to eat and to take a shower and to sleep. A lot of people come through this shelter not feeling loved or even that anyone cares about them. I give 6 hours a week to this and I give out hugs and smiles and let them know that God is there looking on them. It is a nice time to be able to talk to these folks. I pray with them to. I just thought I would share my experience with you all. God bless and many hugs. :)

My job as Minister of Music at my father's church in Starkville, MS, has been a rewarding service. It has open doors for me to not only teach/direct music, but it gives me an opportunity to share the ministry within the music to others. I also serve as program coordinator for many of our church events and youth activities. As a new member of LU, I'm excited to begin this yet another spiritual journey.

I am a charter member of Marlboro Gideon Camp,(jail ministry, Bible distributions at our local schools, visitation at nursing homes), part of local Emmasus community. I try to participate in discussions in our Sunday school classes and after study. I also work with the homeless in our town. Sometimes I cook pots of food and pass it out.

I am a Pastor, and I sing on our Praise team at church. I teach Sunday School, volunteer my time to help others who are troubled and help underprivileged kids go to college and beyond. Six months ago, I lost my dad and he asked me to look after my sister who is special needs, and now I am taking care of her as well. I wanted to do foster care and tutor with the literacy program, but my plate is full right now along with my Graduate studies. God is good!

I have worked with all ages of special needs children since 2005. I love them all. I also serve in my community as a volunteer City Commissioner for Public Works and Safety. I have two other volunteer online jobs - one as quarterly editor of our professional newsletter for appraisers of textiles, and one as one of the reps for Southern California and Southern Nevada for another professional quilt organization. I enjoy doing volunteer work. I like making quilts for other organizations to give to needy children or adults or soldiers, or to raise money for good causes. I have pretty much done volunteer work all my life, and will probably continue to do that as long as I live.

I am currently working to set up a community outreach ministry for women. Our purpose is to bring women together across all denominations, economic statuses, and to break down racial barriers to come together to glorify the name of God. I am also working to start a Bible study at a local women's shelter.

I currently serve on the Board at Miracle Temple Church in Lambert, MS.
I am so happy that God created me to be a people person to encourage young people to be all God has created them to be in life and most of all to to do His Will.

Hi I'm a member of our church's prayer group. We meet on Sunday mornings at 7:30am to 9am praying for the affairs of the body of Christ. God is always wanting us to seek His will for every season.

I currently serve in my church as a member of the choir. In the past I have been a facilitator for DivorceCare and a Sunday School teacher. With work and school, I have cut back on service. I also just completed an 8 week volunteer service for my church basketball league.
