Serve Orlando

     Serve Orlando was my first mission trip and my first youth trip. It was an amazing experience. I learned so much about helping others in need. Being on this trip really opened my eyes and I saw how many people need our help.
     First, we went to a homeless shelter and helped clean up for them. We also got to com-
fort and play with the homeless preschoolers there. That was such an amazing experience. We
helped stock a food pantry, and that was really fun. We served dinner to homeless people on
the last night. All the people there were so nice and grateful. Going to these places really
made me want to start helping those in need more.
     Each day after serving those in need we had amazing dinners, worship, family time,
and then game time. During family time I learned about others in our group, and I feel like I
have 14 people I can tell anything to. We all became so close. The worships were amazing,
too. I learned new songs and to be bold. Every night our game always connected us to God.
I’ve memorized so many verses from Acts. A lot of us, including me, have gotten better at
praying out loud now. This trip made me realize how much God loves me and that we need to
share that. We learned so much and I definitely got closer to God, not only during worship but
everyday serving.
     I am so grateful for Pastor Josh, Mrs. Stephanie, and most of all our church family. I’m
so grateful I got to experience this amazing trip, and I’m going to do it again as soon as there
is another opportunity. There was one night we all expressed our feelings to each other and
now I feel one hundred times closer to Pastor Josh and everyone else there. I’m so happy I
got to go on this trip, and I’m so grateful for the church because all of you made this possible
for us.
Thank you.

Listen Live

Because He lives, I can face tomorrow.

“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30 (NIV) Because He lives, All fear is gone. “Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled and do not be afraid.” John 14:27 (NIV) Because I know He holds the future. “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV) And life is worth the living just because He lives.“I have come that they may have life, and have it abundantly.” John 10:10 (NIV) We have the blessed assurance that no matter what we go through here on earth, He is always with us. Nothing can separate us from His love. We need not fear death, either, because we who have accepted His marvelous gift of salvation are promised abundant eternal life with Him. Life truly is worth the living, because He lives!
