Spring has officially arrived. This morning I sit in my house with the front door and windows open. The sun is shining brightly and fills the room. I hear the sound of the chimes coming from the porch as they blow in the gentle breeze.
With spring comes new life. My redbud trees are in full bloom, trees are leaved out, flowers are blooming, and grass greening up, not to mention how fast it has grown following this past week’s rain. “This is the day the Lord has made” and what a beautiful day to enjoy His creation.
Spring brings about activity. Children are playing outside, neighbors are mowing the grass, and families are out for a stroll. Things are coming back to life after the long, cold winter months and it just brings a smile on our faces.
With spring, also come opportunities for ministry. I get many calls this time of year from churches and/or teams looking for places to serve. We have ministry opportunities from northern to southern, western to eastern, Kentucky. At present 120 projects needs are posted on our website, including church requests, association requests, and ministry center requests.
Backyard Bible clubs, block parties, prayer walking, door-to-door outreach, church construction (new construction to renovation, painting and putting on new roofs), demolition projects, home repairs, resource needs for ministries, children and youth outreach, women’s events, food and clothing ministry projects, raceway ministry, camp events, work with teen parents, long-term, short-term, one-day projects all the way to two-plus year projects. All of these are available for just the right individual or mission team.
As you experience the new life of spring, why not take the opportunity to share with others the rich new life they can experience in Christ.
For information on how you can serve in Kentucky this spring and summer give me a call or check out our mission opportunities at www.kybaptist.org/go.
