When we were kids we sang some simple songs like “He’s Got the Whole World in his Hands” and “Jesus’ Hands were Kind Hands.” These are songs about sharing. God shares his love through us sometimes and our hands do what God needs our hands to do for our neighbor.
Central has a Sharing Team that offers ways for people to make a difference in the lives of others. Mission involves our money but it also involves our work.
When those others live thousands of miles away, we send our dollars to support the work of missionaries and projects that make life better through education, health care or food relief. When those others live next door, we give our time and energy in volunteer service. We also give food, clothes and other goods to pantries around the city.
So Sharing is both Global and Local. John Wesley, the founder of The Methodist Church, once said, “Earn all you can. Save all you can. Give all you can.” Central’s Sharing Team helps people put those words of John Wesley into practice.
