Get Involved: 

Psalm 24:1 says, “The earth is the Lord’s, and all its fullness, the world and those who dwell therein.” Therefore, WE should have a world perspective, just as HE has a world perspective. The WHOLE earth belongs to Him!

Here are some ideas of how you, as a parent, as a business person, as a children’s worker, as an individual who is concerned with this generation can make a difference in your community and in your world.

  1. Give your time, talent, and treasure to organizations that help the persecuted, the orphans and widows, street children, victims of child labor, trafficking, and drug addiction. (Psalm 82:3)
  2. Orphan Sunday is the first Sunday of every November. Give a donation to your favorite orphan ministry, pray for orphans around the world, or take the time to educate others about the plight of orphans. There are a plethora of materials on the Internet that you can use as resources. (James 1:27)
  3. The International Day of Prayer for the Persecuted Church is the second Sunday of every November. Join with others around the world praying for our persecuted brothers and sisters. Information can be obtained from: http://www.idop.org. (Hebrews 13:3)
  4. Using the teaching resources from www.frontlinekids.net, educate your kids and other kids in your circle of influence about the nations of the world. Pray specifically for their greatest needs and ask the Lord to bring them to a saving relationship with Jesus Christ. (Proverbs 22:6)
  5. Plan a mission trip for the kids and families that you teach. Let God work in their hearts as they experience first-hand the problems that children around the world experience everyday. (2 Corinthians 1:2-4)
  6. Organize a local outreach in your community to serve those that Jesus described as “the least of these”. Serve at a local soup kitchen or adopt a family in need and help them to have a happy Thanksgiving and a Merry Christmas in the name of Jesus. There are many ways to jump in and get involved. See the Outreach section of our website for ideas. (Matthew 25:40)
  7. Don’t just go to church, BE the church. Notice those in need around you. Offer a smile, listening ear, or a prayer. So many need encouragement in these difficult times. (James 1:22)
  8. Get your children involved. Most children in our culture are not used to having to see problems outside of themselves. Train them to be like Jesus. Encourage them to have purposeful birthday parties such as collecting gifts to give to others. Sponsoring a child from World Vision or Compassion and having them write letters is a great way for them to connect with kids in need. Kids love to serve others, they just need an opportunity! (Deuteronomy 6:6-8)
  9. Allow time in your Sunday school classes for children to share how they reached out to others over the weekend. Giving them an opportunity to share their testimony will encourage them to continue and affirm in them the importance of what they did. It will also encourage others to get involved. (Revelation 12:11)
  10. Pray, pray, pray. The Lord will direct you in the way He will have you go. The possibilities are endless, but God has a very specific and detailed plan for you, your family, your church, your community, and your world. Seek His face, hear His voice, then GO DO what He is calling you to do! (Jeremiah 29:11)
