This past week we were pleased to show our appreciation to some of our many wonderful volunteers at this year’s annual Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon.
In 2017 we were blessed by the faithful support of nearly 350 volunteers, all of whom together donated more than 1300 hours of service. The fact is, we could not effectively serve the number of people that we do each year were it not for this small army of dedicated volunteers.
This cadre of compassionate workers sacrificed their time, talent and treasure to serve the hundreds of men, women, and children that we minister to every day. Everyone from the lovely ladies who manage our Clothes Closet, the tutors and homework helpers in our After-School Program, to the coaches of our youth sports teams and the allies who support our WORK Program students—all played a vital role in bringing faith, hope, and love to ‘the least of our brothers and sisters.’
When the Son of Man comes in his glory, and all the angels with him, then he will sit on his glorious throne. Before him will be gathered all the nations, and he will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates the sheep from the goats. And he will place the sheep on his right, but the goats on the left. Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me’ (Matthew 25:31-40, ESV).
