Great Day of Service

How’s your Saturday going?

Mine started extra early but I participated in the 2012 Great Day of Service. Nine people, including three youth, representing the First United Methodist Church in Joshua, traveled to Fort Worth for a brief worship service and orientation session, then traveled to the first project site.

Our supply buckets included paint brushes, paint rollers, paint trays, and paint buckets.

Want to take a guess on what the team did?!

If you guessed *PAINTING* …….. you are correct!!!!!!

The wheelchair ramps had recently been constructed, but they needed to be painted. Equipped with supplies, we painted a larger (and longer) ramp this morning, then drove to the second clients’ home to paint another after lunch.

*OUR FINISHED PROJECT*

I’m really proud of our team and their willingness to serve in Fort Worth. I hope this creates a spark within our congregation to serve others in the local community. Perhaps FUMC Joshua can host a *Great Day of Service* in the future, or create our own service opportunity.

Jesus said ….. Whatever you do for the least of my brothers and sisters, you do for me.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend!
