We Exist to Love Jesus and Do Something About it!

One of the things I love most about Ginghamsburg is that we exist to love Jesus and do something about it. It’s why I decided to be a partner with Ginghamsburg and made the commitment to give financially to the mission. We (Ginghamsburg) want to make a difference in our community and beyond by being the hands, feet and even bank account of Jesus. 
 
I want to take a moment to celebrate some of the ways we are currently living out this mission.

Two weekends ago training began for the relaunch of our Fort McKinley Breakfast Ministry. Last weekend we sent a team to Lake Charles, Louisiana to rebuild homes devastated by a series of catastrophic storms. We also partnered up with Rebuilding Together Dayton for a neighborhood clean-up in the Edgemont community of Dayton. And because Jesus eats with everyone, we held our monthly Food Drive for New Path Ministries.
 
I want to invite you, your family, and your life group to be a part of this missional lifestyle by joining us in serving. Whether you want to serve in the church, in the community or somewhere else in the world, we have an opportunity for you!
