Our We Choose ministry initiative is shaped by our Core Values, the foundational pillars of discipleship. It also represents the strategic way we budget, allocate, discuss, raise, and spend resources in a manner that will help us accomplish the mission God has given us. We are excited to share these updates of how we have seen discipleship in the context of community flourish through our current We Choose plan.
Last month, our Greer campus hosted a movie night for the special needs community. This event was volunteer driven, and they pulled out all the stops! Individuals from our Mosaic community and friends of our serving partner David’s Table, along with their families, arrived to a red carpet, amazing decorations, concessions, and an all around great time enjoying one another. While participants got to watch Sing 2, their families also had an opportunity to connect with one another and enjoy some down time.
Over 50 folks got to experience this event, and over 35 volunteers made sure it was a special night for all involved. The bulk of volunteers for the movie night were young adults in their 20s and 30s, and it was also a unique opportunity for them to get to know each other as they served their community.
A few volunteers had this to say about the event:
“When I saw the big smiles on everyone that walked through our doors, I knew that every minute of preparation was well worth it. God creates everyone in his own image, and that night, we were able to celebrate that.”
“It was a night of perspective for me—just taking in all the joy through their laughter and spirit was absolutely contagious. It was a reminder of how encouraging it is to let His joy spill over into my life each day because He is that good!”
This is how discipleship happens—in community, life on life, serving one another. We are thankful for our Greer campus and all they do to pour God’s love into the community! To learn more about Grace Church Greer, click below.
