Practical Care

WE'RE HERE TO HELP:

Jesus is the ultimate servant. He demonstrates what it is to be a servant to others and He calls His followers do likewise. In John 13, he washes the feet of His disciples. In doing so, He makes the point that not only does He serve others, but His followers are to serve one another. In other passages such as Mark 10:43-45 He points to His sacrificial death as how He serves His followers and exhorts them to seek to serve rather than be served. Jesus also encouraged and sought to meet the physical needs of strangers (Heb 13:2), the poor (Matt 5:42), and the needy (1 John 3:17-18). Based on Jesus’ example and teaching, Christ Community Church is eager to generously and sacrificially serve those inside and outside our church community.
