Love INC Volunteer E-News, July 2019

 

“Love cannot remain by itself – it has no meaning. Love has to be put into action and that action is service.”   – Mother Theresa

This quote by Mother Teresa reminds me of the direct approach taken by James when he writes on Christian living, “Faith without works is dead,” James 2:17.  

 As Christ followers, we have been given so much, most importantly His grace through our Lord Jesus Christ.  It is God’s love poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit that inspires and empowers us to love in action. In this season, as we look for volunteers to serve in our Clearinghouse Call Center, join us in prayer that the Holy Spirit will draw Christians with a heart for service to offer help and love to our neighbors in our local communities.   

Thank you, beloved volunteers, for you have counted the cost and come with the beauty of the gospel and love for those who need the living hope of faith in Jesus. You are the great blessing of this ministry. Enjoy this month’s edition of Volunteer E-news. 

Jan Dougherty Awarded Volunteer of the Month: Devoted Service, Kindness, and Mercy 

 Love INC of Brevard is proud to announce Jan Dougherty one of Love INC’s longest serving volunteers, who joined the ministry in 2012 as the June 2019 “Volunteer of the Month,”

As Office Receptionist, Jan is the face of the ministry in answering calls from the general public, in welcoming visitors to the office, and in multi-tasking the many assignments that are asked of someone who serves in a countywide ministry program aimed at helping people overcome poverty.  Jan is often the first line of contact when a person in need reaches our office looking for help, and she extends the kindness and mercy of Christ with each caller.  

It’s a pleasure to stop by the Receptionist desk on Orientation day during the new volunteer tour of our facilities because we can always count on Jan to share her love for the ministry and how the call to service keeps her coming back week after week. Jan truly follows the example of Christ, who came to serve not to be served.  We extend our best wishes and congratulations to Jan Dougherty, Love INC’s June 2019 Volunteer of the Month. 

So, as those who have been chosen of God, holy and beloved, put on a heart of compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.” Colossians 3:12

 

Clearinghouse Call Center Faces Critical Shortage of Volunteers  

The Clearinghouse Call Center is facing a critical shortage of volunteers, and we are asking our community to get the word out to people in your sphere of influence, friends, family and fellow congregants. The greatest expression of Love INC is through direct client services where the life-changing message of the gospel and the basic life tools of change are offered.  Christians have a beautiful opportunity to provide help to people in need in our communities. Pray we meet the challenge to fully staff our ministry as we build strong.  You don’t need to have professional or prior volunteer experience to serve. Training is provided.

To complete the online volunteer application and to sign up for orientation go to the Love INC Website at: https://www.loveincbrevard.com/volunteer
