VIS Connects #1Kingdom#1Body Youth to Serving Opportunities

We at Volunteers In Service were pleased to have a role in connecting young people from several churches on the south end of Kent County, to people and organizations in the community. Students gathered at Friendship CRC on the morning of October 6 for prayer and snacks and then headed out to various locations in the community. Approximately 100 youth and adults participated in an event called #1Kingdom#1Body, showing God’s love to the area of Grand Rapids as 1Body for 1Kingdom. It was a time to SERVE the community together in the name of Jesus Christ; to share His love, spread His Word, and build His Kingdom! They did things such as playing games with seniors in assisted living facilities, painting, assembling dry soup mixes, and decorating for Halloween, among other things, all in the name of Christ.

Because of a connection that was made with GDT City of Pentecost Church, one of the churches hopes to take all of their youth there to join them for a different worship experience.

It was a pleasure to assist with this event and such an inspiration to see so many young people living out their faith by serving.
