|Ministry of Construction|
"In Him, the whole building is joined together and rises to become a holy temple in the Lord. And in Him, you too are being built together to become a dwelling in which God lives by His Spirit." Ephesians 2:21-22
The Ministry of Construction will provide a means of sharing our faith in Jesus Christ with the construction workers on the jobsite. We will minister through friendliness, kindness, relationship building and gratitude using a wide variety of actions, which prayerfully may open a door to sharing our spiritual life.
This ministry may be the only gospel display that some of our workers ever experience. What a wonderful opportunity to reach out and serve while also strengthening our personal walk with the Lord!
How will we do this? Here are just a few possibilities:
* Enlist volunteers to pray at the jobsite regularly.
* Thank, praise and encourage the workers continually.
* Have classes meet at the site to pray.
* Host lunches for the workers on a regular basis.
* Frequently serve coffee and donuts.
* Ask secondary students to periodically wash workers' cars.
* Have classes make cards and banners of appreciation.
* Plan a special "Day of Gratitude" and invite the workers to thank them. Provide door prizes for this event.
* Holy graffiti
What an exciting opportunity to serve our Lord through serving the workers He is sending to our site!
