Celebrating Our First Annual Serve Week: A Heartwarming Recap

We have just wrapped up an incredible Serve Week here at Able to Serve! From June 3-7, our participants engaged in daily Bible Study centered around the theme of service, exploring what it means to be a servant, who we serve, when and how we serve. Each day was a meaningful and transformative experience, filled with multiple service projects both on and off campus. This special week allowed our participants to not only learn about service but to actively live it out in their community.

Throughout Serve Week, our participants took part in a variety of impactful projects. They worked with the Interfaith Food Shuttle, played Bingo with residents at a local senior citizens home, and washed cars for seniors. They delivered Back Pack Buddies food bags to local elementary schools, crafted encouraging messages for seniors, and assembled disaster relief laundry bags. Participants also made blankets for those in need, went on prayer walks throughout Garner and Clayton, tended the garden at White Deer Park, assisted with mission projects at Ebenezer Methodist Church, Provided a free car wash to 3 local churches & their members, and sorted clothing with Note in the Pocket. Each project embodied the essence of SERVE Week:

Share Jesus’ Love,
Expand your reach,
Respond to needs,
Volunteer with purpose,
and Engage the community.

At the core of Able to Serve is the belief that every person is created by God to serve others. Following the mission given to us by the greatest servant, Jesus, we challenged ourselves and our community during SERVE Week. This week-long challenge focused on acts of service that make a difference in the lives of others and show them Christ’s love. We paused our regular schedule to fully immerse ourselves in serving our community, and we encourage everyone to continue this spirit of service. Simple acts of kindness can have a significant impact. As we reflect on this transformative week, we invite our entire community to find ways to intentionally serve those they encounter in their daily lives. Will you join us in serving others and making a difference?

Together, we can continue to expand our reach and respond to the needs of our community. We can’t wait to do it all again next year!

Remember – Making a Difference in someone else’s life is easier than we realize!
