Project Oz

I had posted before about the WEEKEND OF SERVICE. If you don't know what I am talking about, check out the post here. Anyway, our growth group (aka small group) signed up for a project to serve at together. One of the guys in our group is the High School pastor, so we are going to work on a high school project this weekend. The service project is called Project Oz.

Category: Clean-up, Construction/Carpentry, Electrical, Landscape, Painting

Focus on preventing drug abuse, empowering high-risk youth and young adults, helping runaway kids, and preventing other destructive behaviors, such as gang involvement.

City: Oceanside

I am quite excited about the project. Ryan and I actually made shirts to wear for the weekend (instead of buying them from North Coast we wanted to be creative and make our own - which reminds me I will post some pictures of our shirts later tonight if I get out to the garage to take some photos). I can't wait to be the hands and feet of Jesus this weekend (I mean of course I am His hands and feet every day, but this day we will be going out as an ENTIRE CHURCH, the BODY). I love loving my neighbor (especially in this tangible way of serving those around us)!
