Meet the need Ministries.
At The Rising we are about all aspect of health and wellbeing. We stride to feed the congregation spiritually but we are working hard to develop ways to meet needs in every way we can. In acts the apostles brought their followers together like a family and shared everything so no one was without. As best we can, we want to do the same.
How it Works:
You know that couch thats in perfect condition but you don’t want to throw it and cant really sell it, but if knew someone who really needed it you would give it to them. Well, this is exactly that. A list of those in need. We have comprised a log of items that some of The Rising family are in need of. The list will have the names anonymous unless they choose to be mentioned. You can see this list in the information foyer and choose what to help out with or if you have items in good condition someone could benefit from, we will document it and when the need arises we will arrange for the item to be picked up from your house. That is what this is all about, trying to meet the needs of others in all aspects of their lives.
All the believers were together and had everything in common.45 They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. 46 Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, 47 praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. – Acts 2:45-47
If you are in need:
Fill out an items needed card and submit it to one of the leaders or place it in the offering box(located at the entrance of either foyer). If someone is able to meet the need we will notify you and arrange for a pickup
If you want to help their are two ways:
- Request a list and if you are able to help in any way we will notify the recipient and pick up the item. Unless you want to personally give it to them.
- If you have items of worth that just need a home or something you want to give, fill out an items to give card and give it to a leader or place it in the offering box and we will log it and find it a home as soon as we can. (cards and box are located in the information foyer)
