Are you looking for a way to Be Rich this holiday season? Be Rich, our annual giving and serving campaign, will launch this Sunday. We’d love to partner with you this Christmas to do incredible things in your communities all around the world. Last year our friend, Patti, partnered with North Point Online to serve her community in Greensboro, GA. We asked her a few questions about her experience, and we think you’ll be as inspired as we were to serve this holiday season.
What is your favorite thing about Be Rich? Bringing together the community to serve more, give more and do more.
What did you do to serve and participate in the 'Time' call to action? [We] encouraged those attending to participate by donating food to Second Harvest and volunteering to work during their upcoming food distribution. We placed boxes at the theatre and collected canned goods through Christmas. During the November and December food distribution we averaged 30-35 volunteers.
What did you like most about serving? Being able to see a great need be met in our community.
Why would you encourage other viewers to participate? Jesus always served others and we should too. 2nd Corinthians 4:5 says, For what we proclaim is not ourselves, but Jesus Christ as Lord, with ourselves as your servants for Jesus’ sake.
