Loving One Child At A Time

November 22, 2011

Building Relationships, Resources

The Gospels show us many examples of how Jesus loved.  He loved in the singular, and as He engaged in the lives of the individuals He met, He demonstrated His love for all of us.  Simply loving the one person that God has put in front of you in the moment is a powerful way to incarnate His presence, His touch, and His words to someone in need.

The kind of God-love that transforms hearts doesn’t work en masse; it is best applied one individual at a time.  And last Saturday our Special Friends Ministry, through a program called Buddy Break, created an opportunity to love one child at a time! 

Imagine having the opportunity to step up and show some love to a child with special needs while playing fun games, learning great bible stories, listening to music, and more while giving their parents a much needed break!  It’s an awesome opportunity to minister to a family in need and our great group of volunteers makes it possible every month!

“I will never be able to put into words how I came to the church broken and feeling that no one would be able to understand what a single mom with a special needs child goes through or even needs.  But, the Lord has totally worked and used you to bring hope, encouragement, joy, love, and compassion to someone that has been on this road for a long time and was getting weary and tired.  I will never be able to thank you enough…”  Tammy

Our Buddy Break ministry is always on the lookout for people who have a passion for children!  If you want to make a difference in the life of one child, a child with special needs, then give the Special Friends Ministry a call today:  407-514-4398
