MLK Weekend of Service
“The King will reply, ‘I tell you the truth, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for me.’” — Matthew 25:40
Each year, thousands of volunteers around the country participate in a wide range of community service projects for HOPE Worldwide’s MLK Weekend of Service. Last year, our OC Church of Christ had almost 200 volunteers participate, and this year we hope to have 300 volunteers join us for this amazing event!
Here’s how it works – we have selected 7 projects from a number of different organizations that will take place during MLK Weekend (January 19-21, 2013). Our volunteers will be put into service teams and have the chance to serve in one of these incredible programs! We have put information regarding each of our programs on the back of this sheet.
In order to make this our best Weekend of Service yet, we need your help! Each of these programs was created to meet the needs of the less fortunate in the OC – children, families, the elderly, schools with little funding, veterans, the poor, the homeless, and the list goes on. There are many needs in our beautiful Orange County, and as disciples of Christ, we are not only called to love others “with words or tongue but with actions and in truth” (1 John 3:18). This MLK Weekend of Service gives us an opportunity to show our love for those in need around us.
